Future Egypt Revisited

By AlexRuizArt
This is an update to an image I created four years, does time fly!:)

I think it's very important as artists to look back at our old work and recognize how far we've come. And on some occasions, update the work with the skills and techniques we've learned along the way. ( see the original here:

I've always liked the concept of this image, a future Egypt occupied by hovering structures and retrofitted with some kind of scaffolding and tech.

If you're interested in my techniques, I've made video tutorial downloads in which I explain in depth how to make images like this. Visit my store for more details.

Dark and interesting at the same time. I really am not sure why I like this one.
Maybe because it's rooted into something out of Enki Bilal or that I can see all the work you did in it.
All I can say is fantastic work, really. :)
Awesome art! can i use it,has a backround image for a monotized youtube for a song i made?
Altough for some reason this videos the are just songs with an image background don't show ads dunno why.

Earlier I read how opposites are really pairs that help define reality. Seeing this piece proves that for me. Oh and you're right about what you said, that an artist should look back at old pieces and update them ;)

I agree with you about reviewing our work and updating it with new techniques. For years now, I've been a "traditional" artist; I'm only now getting into Photoshop. Now I take my paintings and chalks and freshen and update them using PSE. It's fun, and after all, PS and other digital artists programs are just another color in the palette :) Great picture BTW - VERY atmospheric and convincing.
