Research Topic

I'm I the first one to post? Hmmm. Anyways my current research topic is on environments. I like how artists are able to create detailed stories with just one scene of an environment. For example, the painting above shows how the people gather on the streets, maybe ceremoniously because of the hats and temple like buildings. The architecture is kind of mix between Greek (tall columns) and the Asian (curved red roofs), which also may suggest the cultures are a mix of the two as well. It seems the world is also fairly primitive, suggested by the elephant-like work animal and foliage which would've been cut down if it were our world.

The digital painting is called "Twice" by Theo Prins. Heres his deviantart
