Steampunk Aphrodite by MarkoTheSketchGuy Steampunk Aphrodite by MarkoTheSketchGuy
In a parallel, steam punk reality, ancient Greek gods are still being worshiped. Once a year, during Love festival, thousands of worshipers get together in Aphrodites temple to witness a miracle - Aphrodites spirit descends into a giant steam powered automaton sculpture and does the dance of love, as a blessing to all those who came to worship her. It is said that no man or woman can not but to feel infinite bliss while watching her performance, which often leads into other forms of...pleasures...;)

This one took about 3 days, on and off. Would have spent more time on it, but this darn exam I had just preoccupied my mind for the first half of the week...-_-`
Also - painting interiors is haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaard...@_@

One of the greatest things about this, is when you notice the crowd below, wich makes the statue and the background much more impressive.

Wow... Just simply wow. This is amazing. Your art is simply wonderful.
Aside from that, it's strange how you've got a similar idea to mine. In my reality, each Deity has a city. Aphrodite in Paris, Athena in London, Hermes in Naples, etc. But Athena has become the Ruler of the Gods by outsmarting Zeus, which is why the 18th century has become so prosperous and high-tech.
I absolutely love this. Keep up the amazing works. ;)

Interesting concept you have. We also work with ancient greek myths, with a twist. Love the colors and the angle.

Super ideja i odlično izgleda! :) i fora mi je to što nije cijela od mesinga, prema teksturi bih rekla da je mramor?

:iconmarkothesketchguy:
MarkoTheSketchGuy Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2011
Je, mramor je! Woohoo, kuži se! Samo mi je bitno da sam trefio boje, toga me bilo najviše strah. Nakon toga samo tekstura mramora u overlay layer, malo poštelavanja i presto! :D
