I realize it's been a very long time since I've posted anything, so I wanted to make this something special. The idea that I hope came across here is that Ciel is holding a holocam and recording a special message to you.
I wanted to get this out for Valentine's Day, but the technical aspects just wouldn't cooperate.
Depth of Field is EXPENSIVE to render, especially when combined with transparency and refraction. I hope you enjoy the fancy effects. It tied up my computer for 20 hours, and because of that the hi-res version is only 1920x1200 this time. I tried to go higher but my time estimates were in the hundreds of hours mark.
For those of you wondering where I've been, I've been playing this little game called Star Wars The Old Republic that you might have heard of. Maybe I'll post a screenshot soon with more info.
Anyways, I hope you guys enjoy this. I've also included in the download a clean version w/o the camera elements, thus so:
Can't wait for the next one. You're killing us with your long breaks in between pics. ;)

Very professional pic, with a different focus from some of your other 'art' :p.
Ciel is looking very nice, as are the special effects. the videolog aspect is also very interesting. it almost looks like it should be a screenshot of a movie.
again, very professional and another spot-on job!
p.s., would you consider taking and/or posting fan fictions based on your chracter? (they will be classy, i guarantee it!)

TOR... yeah, I get it.
I completely understand what you're going through with The Old Republic. I think I spent about four hours jumping in the same spot, trying to get a holocron the other day... drove me bat-shit crazy, but I just can't stop.
Love the render. Good to see some Twi'lek stuff.
