    From Ancient Babylon Via Daniel

    Here is an illustration I just finished for a company that provides imagery for public speakers. It is meant to represent a dream image depicted in the second book of Daniel in the old testament of the Christian Bible. I had a ton of fun with this. Religion aside that book contains some very cool and epic imagery on the scale of any of the great mythologies.

    I hope you enjoy this.

    Fashmir, a well-designed and crafted image. One can understand the drama that is happening at the moment.

    One question: how big is the image in AR3 that you worked to get details so accurately perfect, and so sharp?

    Another question: the image had a digital processing outside AR?

    Since I'm asking a lot, Fashmir one last question: Do you by chance already printed this picture? The result does justice to the image?

    Fantastic work of art dear friend.

    Skylar- Thanks for looking in a commenting. Yeah the imagery described is so ripe with symbolism that discussion of it can and does occupy much time and debate. I find it fascinating and exciting as much as any fantasy or Sci Fi imagery which I also enjoy immensely.

    Orianelima- - Thanks my friend!

    This one is 4167 X 5000 pixels.

    All major work was completed in AR Studio Pro with the exception of some experimentation with shapes done in photoshop using the liquify tool.
    That work was brought back in to AR and painted using AR tools. No other processing took place outside AR to the best of my recollection.

    I have not had occasion to print this yet. I have no plans to print it at this time, but may choose to do so later.

    Here are some close ups to show the size and details.

    Fashmir,
    Absolutely awe inspiring art work. The detailing, presentation and effort
    involved in it's creation leaves me breathless and in admiration of this
    creative masterpiece of the mind and spirit. Many sacred influences,
    symbols and messages are represented within this captivating piece.
    Touching, gripping and most powerful.

    Mairze-Thanks for such high praise. I am glad you enjoy the image.

    Jack- Good to see you in here my friend. Thanks for looking in and commenting. I haven't been around the forum as much lately but I still use AR every day and think of the old AR group here often.

    What a fine fine piece! This is on a par with whatever religious/mythic ilustration Ive seen in any book. Just stunning!
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.
