Library Rats by maximegirault Library Rats by maximegirault
Finally! I started this one almost a year ago, but had to report it several times for multiple reasons.
The main reason is that i was looking for the perfect model. Finally Angeldust (previously featured on "Shanghai Love Birds") ended up on this at the last minute, and she's great as always!

In a way, it's kind of a tribute to Miyazaki, who inspired me so much when i was a child. And this giant Rat would not exist without Totoro.

It was pretty fun! The giant rat is mainly made from my cat. But no animal were harmed.
No others stocks from mine were used.

Do not hesitate to folow me on facebook! www.facebook.com/giraultmaxime

Edit : I'm really glad of this DD, thank you! I'm on hollidays at the end of the world so i can't reply to everybody, but i'm so glad to see my work appreciated and fully understood by all of you. You rocks!

I'm diggin this, but I'm wondering how much more I'd dig it without our female character. I love the composition and color. Blending is totally right on. Great work.

I love the giant rat it's just so awesome. The "Fifty Shades of Yellow" was a nice touch, I figure it's for the yellow tint.

Exquisite! Love Totoro and all that comes from Miyazaki & Studio Ghibli...

 

Read the comments to try to find how it was done...

Photography, digital painting and 3D...

So my guess is Digital Camera, then PhotoShop... The 3D ? (Maya, SoftImage, 3D-Max)

 

So it's 3D Modeling and then screen shots?

maximegirault Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2013
Hello! There is everything you mentionned :) but 3D is only for the books on the background. Lot of photomanip (the rat is digital painting and pictures of my cat..) and lots of digital painting :) hope this helps!

Artemiche Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
Thank you!
But still, what 3D software are you using?

I stopped using Softimage & 3D Max, got tired of the problems of their key-thing and not being able to install my paid-for softwares on my new computers...

I downloaded Blender, a free modeling & animation software. It's a tough one, still trying to make something with it...

We use C4D at my work, so i used this program. Very easy to use and easilly allows to multiply books, randomise size etc. But it was just few renders and then got back to the photoshop thing. Blender is a nice concept but i've never met any pros using it very much for the moment.
