"The Message" is an illustration and personal visual interpretation
of the short story "A Message from the Emperor" ("Eine kaiserliche Botschaft") written by Franz Kafka in 1919. The story tells about a very important message that the dying emperor
sends just to you, his individual subject.
But for some practical reasons this message never reaches you...you, however, sit at your window and dream the message when evening comes.
I realized this Kafkaesque 3D scenery with Corel Dream 3D, Bryce and Photoshop.
Particularly difficult was to create the open book that mirrors the scene and out of which the horsemen emerge from.
For that I had to render the whole scene first and import the bitmap into Corel dream 3D to create the book. Horses and riders were painted with Photoshop and added at last to the scenery.
