Prop design: Steamer Trunk

One of the other important objects on the story is the Steamer Trunk that is in the Attic. Fot that once I decided the style and the design of it I modeled in Google Sketchup and over it painted in Photoshop.

What I got from Sketchup, the model I made it public here.

Dress design

These are the tests how the dress looks like after spending many years in the trunk from the attic. Moisture, the years and some other moths have done their damage.

and found it among rugs, triggered some memories on our protagonist, pulling her back on time when the dress was in perfect conditions.

And here some of the designs ideas...

Living Room Digital Painting

And finally the Living room, so I finished all the layouts of the interior of the house.
The idea was to keep the very late evening from the window in contrast with the warm light from the fire, it was fun, but took me a day...
His Armchair is bigger, with a pattern and next to a O2 tank, on the other hand it is her chair, more rounded and compact, but keeping both in the same family by value and color. The house is from an old couple that have being living there for a long time, so tried to be very careful on the choices on the furniture and style. The meet in 1920 on a vessel and we are now 50 years later on this old style house. He was a Sailor and thats because all the pictures are ocean paintings. 

I worked to keep the consistency trough the house on the Entrance and Dining Room.

Thanks Ken for the input about the rug for the composition and Anthony for the lighting comments.
