Ancient and medieval history was my passion when I was young (and still is ). I wanted to go to archaeological studies but finally I chose IT - computer graphic specialization (I made this decision after watching Peter Jacksons The Lord of the Rings, hehe). So my art refers to this dream about archaeology. It would be great to discover some ancient city, to see places which havent been seen for ages by any human being. Another element which is connected with my childish dreams is the helicopter. Almost every boy wants to fly, to be a pilot. Also everyone knows that aeroplanes are better than helicopters, but in my opinion these second are more usuful for archaeologist
Now something about making of. First I made a 3d models and then I used some renders passes to paint over them. So this work is a mix of 3d and 2d techniques. The city design is inspired by Aztec Tenochtitlan's temple district.

Africa already lies in ruins and the tribes are spreading across the world looking for shelter against the fire from the sky. The hyena tribe found shelter by the skyscrapers in Asia, protected by the "iron giants" they build their new primitive homes within the iron houses in hope to withstand the doom thats about to happen.
Without electricity their primal skills fast became superior to the locals and with help of their vicious beasts they overtook the whole city who now leans at their feet, begging for food and shelter. The hyena clan is a cruel and proud clan that will stand their ground until the very last end.. Nothing can stop their determination. Only the strongest spirits will live on forever...
Story: Steampipelines from Earth to Mars. Once upon a time the people from Earth found out that mysteriously enough steam is the best element to transport energy.
In order to connect the steam pipelines with outer space humans had to build giant atmosphere emitters to create an artificial atmosphere. The new technology doesn't work as they would like it to. At places where the selfexpanding pipes break through Earth's atmosphere, huge ozone holes cause an incredibly hot and dangerous environment. All life slowly fades away due to too hot machines which produce an unfavourable oxygen content in the air, while anomalous hurricanes and lightning turn the dilemma into an irreversible process.
Thank you guys for all the favs and comments, I appreciate it!
Sooooo the rules didn't mention anything about collabs not being allowed, so and me decided to do something together :]
Not so much of a point in writing a long description here, we weren't quite sure about how to tackle the subject, there are a lot of interpretations that have been done a lot, and we didn't want anything too generic, so we thought it would be fun to make it, since this is a deviantart contest after all, more about a battle of styles : D Choose for yourself what is good and evil here, we think our point of view is pretty obvious with this one Don't take it too seriously please! Our main purpose was fun :]
Done over a few days in Photoshop, no refs used, buuuuuuut we flipped through a few mangas I had lying around to get a feel for that style. Ah, and since that question keeps coming up with these collabs, yes we just hung out in real life, painting on the same tablet, just taking turns :] Might actually be the most productive way to collaborate since it enables you to give each other feedback much more directly... like, kicks and punches :'D
Edit: Sigs removed due to a line in the rules that was scary.
