History Of The Ancient World by Ilacha History Of The Ancient World by Ilacha
I always liked the way sculptures are displayed in historical monuments. In this picture I wanted to experiment with ornaments, and the game between lights and shadows. I don´t like :dohtwo: clinically clean and brand new surroundings.
I always intend to give my pics a historical impression. That way pics have a more interesting look and don´t look too plain.

Special thanks go out to bluerain :thanks: [link] for letting me use her as a face-model. I integrated some of her facial features partial in my picture.

It really took me a while to finish the whole piece. I started this one at the end of 2007 and just finished it now. I was busy with other projects and didn´t have the chance to finish it earlier. Well, but I made it some how! ;)

Here are some closeup [link] :plotting:

I used Corel Painter and Photoshop

I love the frieze, it looks like it is on the move! There is so much movement there.
As if history was moving across the wall behind her.

Awesome, bravo!

usually, artwork in the thumbnail looks good, but the larger version dissapoints. Here, the large version is absolutely stunning. LOVE it :+fav:

This is absolutely gorgeous! The details, perspective, and mood you've captured here just floor me, from the movement of her clothes, to the flame and leaves, to the interaction of the figures portrayed on the wall. Very, very impressive work. ^__^

Sweet! You nailed that historic feel. Kinda reminds me of ancient Roman reliefs of Ceasar's conquests and the like on that wall. The armor is awesome, very elf like. The whole image is one of those that people remember because it is so detail but also because it is so believable. Excellent job! :worship:
