Nile Rider by flipation Nile Rider by flipation
There are many secret temples on the banks of the Nile. Hidden for thousands of years, buried in sand and submerged under water. No adventurer has entered its dark corridors looking for the burial chambers, filled with forgotten treasures that doesn't shine since the higest glory of forgotten civilizations.
Antique maps, nearly turned into dust, revealing symbols only visible to the eye of the trained archaeologist. Inscriptions and hieroglyphics, invisible pathways mark the spot in the sand where to start digging. A stone carved, a bas-relief, discover an entrance to a deep underground. The filtered light in the dark, softly lit a crumbling passage. Further inside, begins the darkness and the imagination produces primal monsters primal that creep through narrow corridors and wet stone.
Tomb raider or archaeologist, the feeling is the same as the first man going through tunnels not traveled since the death was installed in his quarters and sealed the door behind him. The traps installed to ward off thieves are trivial compared to the unimaginable horrors that await to awake from centuries of deep sleep.

Hay muchos templos secretos en las orillas del Nilo. Ocultos desde hace miles de años, enterrados en la arena y sumergidos bajo las aguas. Ningún aventurero se ha adentrado por sus oscuros corredores buscando lás cámaras funerarias, repletas de tesoros olvidados que no han vuelto a brillar desde el esplendor de olvidadas civilizaciones.
Antiguos mapas, casi convertidos en polvo, revelan símbolos solo visibles a los ojos entrenados del mejor arqueólogo. Inscripciones y jeroglíficos, trazan rutas invisibles hasta un punto en el acre paisaje donde comenzar a excavar. Una piedra tallada, un bajorrelieve, descubren una entrada a metros de tierra. La luz que se filtra en la oscuridad, ilumina débilmente un pasaje medio derruído. Más adentro, la penumbra se convierte en absoluta negrura y la imaginación produce monstruos primigenios que se arastran por estrechos y húmedos corredores de piedra.
Saqueador de tumbas o arqueólogo, la sensación es la misma al ser el primer ser humano en adentrarse por túneles no transitados desde que la muerte se instaló en sus aposentos y selló la puerta trás de sí. Las trampas que se instalaron para alejar a los ladrones son lo de menos cuando horrores inimaginables esperan despertar del siglos de oscuro sueño.

Absolutley stunning work, friend! I was intrigued at fist sight by this. Lovely pose and great use of space. The circle behind the figure really helps even out the image. I can't believe the immense amount of detail in this!! I'm amazed by her clothing especially. Wonderful work drawing the boots! There's so many wrinkles and buttons, the more detail makes it very intriguing. Her anatomy is wonderful, especially in her hands. I like the how the sphinx is done, there is so much detail in it!! Her hair braids are flawless, and adorable. Great use of textures all round. I love the whip on her hip (hello, can we say "sexy"!?) :D As for critique, I find that her face is a bit out of proportion, around the nose. The shading there doesn't seem to match the shadow from her stands and lighting is key for making a picture look accurate. Lovely work overall, and I can't wait to see more!!! :heart:

Este trabajo tiene un aire semejante al de los anuncios antiguos de CocaCola en la que una chica estilo "Marilin" salía anunciando el producto ^^

Se ve muy bien, me gusta mucho gran trabajo :love:

Gracias, la postura me costó bastante, a veces pienso que no es anatomicamente muy correcta, pero es la idea que tenía.
