Artwork Description

This illustration was made for a Study for the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts. The theme was Atlantis - the virtual city. My idea was these: some cheap form ancient greek and roman mithology, organic forms, like fish, ancient and gothic arhitecture and flying ships...

Beautiful, how you used all the many colors, love the reflections within the water and the fish swimming through the tower. Really awesome work!

Thank you!

It is over the water, but it's been raising from water... In the future, i will upload the whole illustration pack (it contains 10 additional views of the city). There you will see the underwater details. And i can promise you, i had (and have) some ideas about that.

Very nice. It's like a rainbow city. The water-horizon effect is nifty. I can't seen to decide if it's underwater or over water. Smile

Thanx for your comment!!! I just had this idea, nothing else...
As you can see, there are roman and greece mithology peaces, some greece/roman warriors, and many "gothic-style" towers. The inspiration... hmmm,... i think Atlantis should be something like this, or maybe something underwater. In my fantasys, the city of Atlantis was tehnical really forward, i presented this on my illustration with the flying ships...

This looks like a cover of a fantasy book. Very vivid and imaginitive picture! One thing though, my eyes can be deceaving, but is it straight or not..?

Art at its best.
