Title: Trapped
Notes:
This is the story of the Lady of Shallot, trapped in a tower by a magical spell, she can only see the real world through a magical mirror. She’s also condemned to weave what she sees in a tapestry.
My version is quite the close to the story except the little robots who are destroying the tapestry to make new thread bobbins.
This piece is about imprisonment, dreams and freedom. Her life is an endless circle(there is a lot of circles in the picture, I can’t tell you how many exactly). She’s trapped in this little room, which is a part of a bigger one, and in her own world there are some others, like the aquarium and the Nautilus. World within worlds… I decided to not add her reflect in the mirror, because she’s not a part of the real world so this magic window can’t reflect her image.
Also this is a huge tribute to Jules Verne. There is a lot of details here about some of his books, like 20000 leagues under the sea, Five weeks in a balloon…All of those stories/references are not considered here as fictions but as real events.
I did not wanted to make something too much mechanical, I choose to keep the concept and the objects believable, the room is mainly inspired by the Victorian style and cabinet of curiosities.

Title: Trapped
Notes:
Adding the last elements and textures. I?ve modified also the ground, I think it?s better this way.

Title: Trapped details
Notes:
Some details of the illustration.
The first is an astrolab, those objects are so mysterious and I think it suits perfectly the theme.
The second could be the cousin of the octopus in 20000 Leagues Under the Sea. I love cabinets of curiosities, and I needed to put something in that style in the image.
The third is a kind of small making of the golden embroideries.
And the last part, it's the 3 little images on the fabric.

Title: Trapped details
Notes:
Some posters that will be on the wall. They are about 2 Jules Verne's books.
The first is "De la terre ? la lune" (From the Earth to the Moon) and the second one is "Cinq semaines en ballon" (Five Weeks in a Balloon)

The whole piece will be full of little details like those.

Title: Trapped details
Notes:
Close up of the doll (which is not finished yet) and the aquarium. I've worked it on another file, it was too small to be done on the main one.
As I said, I wanted inside the aquarium the Nautilus, so here it is!

This element is a world inside her world, the nautilus is also trapped in a cage...and we can imagine small people inside the nautilus trapped aswell in a iron cage...

Notes:
I've added more elements (again...), texture here and there, and worked on the aquarium.
The doll symbolize her own life, she's a kind of puppet in a golden cage.

Title: Trapped
Notes:
I'm starting to work the details, I've added more space on the left, not really sure if it's good or not...
I think, I need to refine the whole thing to see exactly what I want.
