I originally started this piece for the Ancient Civilizations Artstation Challenge, even though I missed the deadline I really wanted to finish this piece as I immensely enjoyed the concept. I decided to stay within the constraints of the contest, I felt like it would be a good challenge to figure out how to fit it all into the constraints. I learned a ton while working on this piece so much so that I re-worked pieces along the way. Thank you to everyone who gave me support along the way and a mighty thank you to Carlyn Lim for making an amazing concept!
