I started this one a while ago, after watching "Gladiator" for probably the tenth or fifteenth time. It was inspired by the music, which really is an incredible soundtrack. I pecked away at this when I had time, a few minutes here, a few minutes there. I feel like it's complete. Thanks for any comments, I'm so far behind I realize will never catch up. Have a fantastic Father's Day, all you guys out there. And a great weekend to the rest of you.

Loved that movie too. And would also love to use this as a desktop image, I really like that long sun and shadow on those foreground rocks - do you have this in say a 1920 x 1080 configuration?

why do i get this desire to walk through this place, jumping from Pillar to Pillar, and searching Flags and Feathers? :D

I guess this is a mixture betwen selfdrawing, and phototextures.
Pretty awsome :D

I *love* lost cities. I would have liked to see more signs of encroaching nature - the ruins seem a bit clean to me - but otherwise very cool and I love the perspective.
