Babylonia by MarcSimonetti Babylonia by MarcSimonetti
This is a pretty old matte painting that I've done for a short scifi movie.

It was featured in "d'artiste matte painting"

I hope you'll like it!

This is an alternate universe where Babylon didn't fall and continued to exist as a replacement for Iraq.

how much is it to get permission just to use for a book cover?

My brain can't even imagine how many time it took to draw this wonderful work. It would take me 20 years.

Wow, I need to learn about photoshop. I have never used it in my life. I sort-of consider myself to be an artist, but I just use pencils and pens for my art. It looks like photoshop multiplies the realism of your art by about 1000x.

Sorry to say that , but photoshop is really just a tool. With pencils, pen and brushes you can truly achieve the same result. (and there are many awesome artist that make better results traditionally)

Wow dude, some parts of this look REAL. Look at all of the details - this must have taken quite a while to finish, no?

Nothing short of outstanding. Props dude. Props.

Thanks a lot!

I love China Miéville books! (I've done some cover arts for his books, especially "Perdido street station" and "the scar")

Ah, sprawling mega cities, how I love thee. I like the un-evenness of it all. I especially like those structures on the left; they look like they could fall over.
