Ben Hur by GIOVANNI-PALUMBO Ben Hur by GIOVANNI-PALUMBO

 Judah Ben-Hur


In AD 26,


Ben-Hur returns to his home in Jerusalem.
 He meets Esther, and learns her arranged marriage did not occur a
nd that she is still in love with him. He visits Messala and demands
his mother and sister's freedom. The Romans discover that Miriam and
Tirzah contracted leprosy in prison, and expel them from the city.
 The women beg Esther to conceal their condition from Ben-Hur so that
 he may remember them as they were before, so she tells him that his
 mother and sister died. It is then that he changes his mind and decides
 to seek vengeance on Messala by competing against him in the chariot race.
During the chariot race, Messala drives a chariot with blades on the hubs
to tear apart competing vehicles. In the violent and grueling race,
Messala attempts to destroy Ben-Hur's chariot but destroys his own instead.
 Messala is fatally injured, while Ben-Hur wins the race. Before dying,
 Messala tells Ben-Hur that "the race is not over"
and that he can find his family "in the Valley of the Lepers,
if you can recognize them." Ben-Hur visits the nearby leper colony,
where (hidden from their view) he sees his mother and sister.
Esther hears Jesus preach the Sermon on the Mount,
and tells Ben-Hur about the message of peace and forgiveness she heard.
Blaming Roman rule for his family's fate, Ben-Hur rejects his patrimony and Roman citizenship.
 Learning that Tirzah is dying, Ben-Hur and Esther take her and Miriam to see Jesus,
but the trial of Jesus before Pontius Pilate has begun.
 Jesus begins his march to Calvary and stumbles before Ben-Hur.
 Recognizing Jesus from their earlier meeting,
Ben-Hur attempts to give him water but guards separate them.
Ben-Hur witnesses the crucifixion of Jesus.
Miriam and Tirzah are miraculously healed during the rainstorm which follows the crucifixion.
 Ben-Hur tells Esther that he heard Jesus talk of forgiveness while on the cross,
and says "I felt His voice take the sword out of my hand." His hatred finally relinquished,
he is emotionally reunited with his mother and sister.

The light is too "crude" to be honest. I mean, with a different light set (hdri environment for example) this image will be a blast.
The composition is really, really well done, it's pretty clear your are telling a story and this is a good achievement !
What tool are you using to render this image ?

:icongiovanni-palumbo:
GIOVANNI-PALUMBO Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2014
thanks , its a simple octane render using standard daylight, with Kodak 200 film.
I was trieng to recreat a painting that is why the light looks like a paint .
I could have used hdri , but would have looked to real and not painted.

(ho letto solo ora che sei italiano e quindi ti rispondero' in italiano ! :))

Il "problema" della standard daylight e' la sua "crudezza" nelle ombre che spesso rende l'immagine finale troppo piatta.
Se vuoi ottenere un'effetto paint concordo che usare un'hdri renderebbe l'immagine troppo "reale".
Se mi permetti un suggerimento, fai una prova con una luce hdri senza nessuna mappa e noterai che l'immagine e' incredibilmente piatta.
Poi aggiugi un light emitter usando una mesh qualsiasi (meglio una mesh piatta) estremamente grande e lontana ed in posizione frontale, tipo ore 5. Otterrai un bell'effetto, che non c'entra nulla con la standard daylight, ma che non sembrera' troppo reale e non avrai ombre troppo stagliate.

Il motivo del mio suggerimento e' che le tue immagini sono estremamente ricche nella sua composizione e non sono affatto noiose. Come si suol dire : sembra che abbiano qualcosa da raccontare. Se riesci a rendere l'immagine meno "cruda" vedrai che otterrai delle ottime immagini!
