I wanted something cool. I wanted some technology within it, but not too much. Something that reminded me those times where i watched the rain falling... you know, where time passes slowly.
Robots are easier to make in a modeller like Gmax. So I made one. And as female are better-looking than male ones, i made a female cyborg. I named her Caealis. It doesn't mean anything, it just sounds good to me.
The scene had to have a meaning, a story. I chose something about us, about the man itself: there's I, and no one else. We look to ourselves, we do things for others to feel better, etc. It's about selfishness. Me, myself and I. I love me. As in the Narcissus' story, we may drown in our own reflection...
Most of the scene was made in POV.
The plants were made in Metasequoia (in fact, I only made one leaf, which was duplicated in POV).
Water ripples are simply pov's normals.
I would have liked to add more details. I didn't have enough time, sorry.
Anyway. This is my entry for Povcomp 2004.
