Irritated by the arrogance of Athens, the Gods sent their minions to rampage the mighty state city.

Whoa this would be such a cool story that becomes some kind of movie animation or maybe a video game. Maybe with the ancient civilizations (Egypt, Rome, Greece, Persia, China, Japan. Aztec) having their own take on advance tech mechs and such. 

Keep up with the awesome inspiring artwork.:D (Big Grin)

This is absoultely stunning, readily one of the best illustrative works I've seen in the recent time. There's so much attention to detail, from architectural design to the owl of Athena on the mecha's shield, and the introduction of people's figures give an incredible feeling of enormity. Instant favourite :heart:

Very interesting! Is the story of the universe that this piece is set in one where the Greek gods have highly advanced technology but the people have the same level of technology as they did in those times?

Huh.  Feels like a hybrid of anime and some old 80's horror, like Phantasm.  There's something great about the very simple design of the orb-monster.

I like it.

I love this piece so much; it seems like with the subsequent two pieces that there's a whole narrative and lore behind this world you've created. Are you going to do more pieces with this techo-greek mythology involved? Perhaps a few that start to put together a larger story? Cause the idea seems unbelievably cool right now.

I feel you. Keep working on it though: i'm sure that it could really evolve into something bigger. And if you ever consider having other writers sign on to help shape the story, I'd be glad to help.

This is such a cool and imaginative design! I suppose you'd call it greco-futurism? That toothed orb from the gods is just plain horrifying and the mecha is badass.

I like this piece alot! This Mech seem more like a support or interceptor type vs a front line melee.   I do feel like the shield arm seem small in proportion to the legs, but it may be the angle. Still a great scene.  I look forward to more.

I am curious, is there a reason you left three individuals kneeling before the monstrosity while everyone else runs away?

I can come up with one or two possible reasons myself but maybe you had your own for doing it.

:icondofresh:
Dofresh Featured By Owner May 16, 2018  Professional Digital Artist
The main reason was composition (I needed to break up the group of characters).
But I also think people react differently to an imminent danger. Most of them flee, of course. But some of them are like petrified by fear or beg for mercy (especially if ti's some kind of god's punishment).
I hope it helps.

"Guess what ugly, one of us is a monster with no purpose spat out by the deepest bowels of the blackest corners of creation with no reason or point to its existence beyond killing stuff for no reason... and one of us is a knight sent by the gods to protect their loyal worshippers from evil... and ugly, you don't look like a knight to me!" 

(I wrote this before reading the description, so I imagined it was the KNIGHT sent by the gods.)

Oh hey, the Greek AC is back.  And it's fighting a miniature version of the Brethren Moon from Dead Space.

Or something along those lines. =P
