In the Clouds
As stated in an earlier post, Sulky loves and pursues original ideas. Robbi is one of ours. He is also a symbol of Sulky’s founders as young ambitious boys of innocence. But that could dream. Here is a process-behind-the-finished-image presentation.
At Sulky, all tools necessary to persuade are utilized. Regarding still work, the above images are important reference examples. To begin to understand Robbi’s world above the clouds we used pen, paint, 3D software/renders, and photo-real textures/compositing to discover the final look. The individual images are representative of a typical progress for a finished image of this level.
This image serves as a guide to Robbi’s world – Robbi’s story. An important character in Robbi’s story is a struggle against gravity – a pursuit of transcendence, seeking to limit boundaries and borders. Hard edges and arbitrarily conceived limits are wholly absent in Robbi’s world. Where one saw weakness, Robbi authored strength. Where one saw limits Robbi introduced impervious possibility. Where others claimed triumph, Robbi staked his vision just beyond. Where some sought derision, Robbi introduced passion, opportunity, and accomplishment. All while seeking the perfect wind to brush his face.
