Savant Zion by Imson Savant Zion by Imson
Finally finished this monster. The original idea was to do something very loose and sketchy, but it turns out I enjoy details too much, so..... this happened.

The concept here is a mishmash of cultures and architectural styles, framed by warm oranges. Considering I was on a bit of an arabic binge at the time, this fit in nicely. The tower and the framing for the painting was pretty much there in my head from the getgo. The tower was meant to serve as the foundation for the city surrounding it. I wanted to give the building a subtle feeling of impossibillity while also making the viewer think of giant cogs. The robed man is a mishmash of references, and hints at the technology available, though his role in all of this was intentionally kept vague.

But all this aside, the premise of this painting is everything you don't notice at first glance. You're meant to be distracted by the big picture to ignore the minor details. I ended up using this cover as a way to hide away as much as I could, and as a result, there's more secrets in this thing than anything I've done previously. Though you'll probably need the full resolution version to spot them all.

Enjoy!

Well, I said "at least". So I though it suppose to mean that there's likely more. Though, as my English is far from perfect, it might mean something else...

might be because I'm a mixture of mentally and physically tired, but somehow I think the huge tower looks somewhat like an ancient robot ballerina being draped, looking quite pleased.
pretty nice.
