I just realized how AWESOME Mesopotamia was. We're talking about the fucking origin of human civilization, the seed from which all other cultures sprung. That's some fantasy sci-fi shit

Not exactly. Egypt and the Indus valley civilization sprung at a similar time. China and the Americas developed 100% independently.

Insanely detailed city... astonishing work!

but what I find most interesting is the human activity displayed in your work. It is often easy to miss, though, it does make the city not a bundle of well-distributed, exquisite constructions any more, but a real living one.

Amazing piece of art, especially the work with the shading, colors, bridge, and - of course - the ziggurat. I wish I could draw buildings this well. (This also makes me long for the Assyriology course I hope to attend this autumn!)
