Contents: Evening out. In the light. A few details. Accent on the décolleté line.
In this chapter the writer takes the reader to the telegraph office not far from governor-generals house on Tverskaya Street. It is not an ordinary post office, but a closed onefor official uses. The reader comes here for the first time and is very curious to see such a place furnished with the latest equipment.
Let us see.
As a habit, we start with a draft.
We draw an unfolded view of the walls and have Andrey Tikhanov hunt for some reality. Lets see what he got:
Not bad. Well try to use these elements in wall décor.
We prepare the textures:
And superpose the ready drawn elements:
In the light.
Its time to deal with lighting. Lets hang lusters and sconces and place here and there some antiquesoh sorry, I meant the latest equipment.
A bit too dark. Lets light both sconceseach has a five candle lamp.
Its better. We model the lighting in the closed space.
A few details.
How about the entourage? We are going to put a mirror on the front wall which will stress the depth. Find a nice piece in an antique shop, model and light it.
Heavy curtains add comfort.
And smaller everyday objects make it look real.
We leave open the door behind the reader. Im just about to go off.
Accent on the décolleté line.
Turn around. And now the other way.
We need a stronger feeling of turning.
We hang a luster in the center. Its a 3D model with appropriate glare and reflections on the crystal pendantsthe luster is encircled with the room panorama.
We wont turn on the upper lights to keep the room semi dark.
Andrey Azarov, Misha Antipin and Vanya Dembitsky did a beautiful job putting the parts together and placing the characters there to finish this fascinating scene.
