There was alot of painting in this as well, in my next couple pieces I'm hoping to get more painting involved. This is kind of like a juxtaposition of ancient and future architecture, taking it to the extremes rather than exploring where we are right now.

It's a 'Key to Immortality' because the Protogenoi are the only gods powerful enough to understand how Immortality works, enough to deprive another god of it, if they pool all of their power. The bottom symbols represent the other deities, while the top represents demons(these are all real symbols used in mythology). Made with gouache, watercolors and pastels on Yupo, then Photoshop and a Wacom Intuos.

Its a one day experiment, and I actually learned alot from it. Some people have said this isnt that polished, that I didn't really think about elements when I added them, but trust me; everything here is intentional. There is no shape here that I randomly added because I wasn't paying attention. Anyways, tried to evoke a different feel from this... also was a test to see if I could work with some crappy images. Created from some ipad symmetry photos of a watercolor I did.

This image shows the death of one of these gods; giving away all its power to the universe, its mortal shell disintegrating and seeping into the Earth. Watercolors, Gouache, Pastels on Yupo.

I put alot of work into this so make sure to look at all the detail! Alot of people dont notice the camels and people on the bridge to the temple This is about technology vs religion, or traditions. I feel that even when the human race has achieved technology that will be able to get us anywhere, let us do anything we want, many will still follow the traditions of their ancestors... the power of religion and tradition will always live on.

In this image I depict the creation of one of these godly beings... the reason I chose to represent it this way was to show the sheer power in a different way than most people would. I thought a powerful and colorful image would more encapsulate what I was trying to get at! This is going to be the first part of my character design, no name yet though. You'll be seeing more like this! Watercolors, pastels, gouache on Yupo plastic.
