alternate america by agitpop alternate america by agitpop
i finally had the time and energy to enter the ENVIRONMENT OF THE WEEK over at conceptart.org. check it out and if you are a member over there, vote for your fave(s). you don't have to vote for mine... but would it kill ya? ;-)

[link]

the brief is posted there but in a nutshell, "if the west discovered the americas 350 years later (around 1850) what would they have found"

it was a lot of fun, a little different than my other pieces but a great exercise. i used more natural looking chalk brushes and painterly approach.

very loverly brushwork and imagery

judging by the mountains in the background i'd say we're either in Cuzco or Tenochtitlan, but probably Tenochtitlan because the Inca usually didn't built pyramid temples. But if we are in the capital of the Aztecs, what happened to their famous canals and causeways?

Aw man, I can't tell you how often I've found out that my "original" idea was just like something I saw years ago. I think we all do it to some extent. It's cool! Nothing is original anymore - we just have to find a fresh way of presenting it.

(Granted, I love Bladerunner, so I might just be looking for it, too!)
