To Be Archaeologist by Araiel To Be Archaeologist by Araiel
Ancient and medieval history was my passion when I was young (and still is :D ). I wanted to go to archaeological studies but finally I chose IT - computer graphic specialization (I made this decision after watching Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings, hehe). So my art refers to this dream about archaeology. It would be great to discover some ancient city, to see places which haven’t been seen for ages by any human being. Another element which is connected with my childish dreams is the helicopter. Almost every boy wants to fly, to be a pilot. Also everyone knows that aeroplanes are better than helicopters, but in my opinion these second are more usuful for archaeologist ;P

Now something about making of. First I made a 3d models and then I used some render’s passes to paint over them. So this work is a mix of 3d and 2d techniques. The city design is inspired by Aztec Tenochtitlan's temple district.

Tools:
3d Studio Max
Vray
Photoshop
Wacom Graphire4 Classic graphic tablet

No joke the description of this picture describes my life. Passion for history, chose computer work instead, would love to discover an ancient city, and using what you decided to do to express your passion. Great art.

Thx, I'm really glad that you like my work :) And about the passion for history - I think that I should have chosen archeology not computer graphic art as my carrear/job path. With this I think that my life will be simpler and not so stressful as now it is.

Archaeologists could always use help with computer stuff (to my knowledge, many of us are hated by technology ;) ) , this is pretty good :)
