Inspired by the story of the Tower of Babel.

The message or theme I was going for is advancement, progression, to reach for the greatest heights. We should all work peacefully together to grow and become the very best we can be, not limit ourselves.

I agree with ApparentlyImaginary so much. I would like this as my wallpaper, but it would be a sin, just wrong, to cut anything to make it 16:9 :(

The amount of detail in this is astounding, very nice job.


Scottr5680 responds:

Thank you! Hmm, maybe I'll consider expanding it lengthwise. I didn't think people would actually be using my drawings for their desktops. And I'll definitely keep that in mind for my future work. :)

I think I just found myself a new wallpaper :D
I've got to admit, I'm a bit jealous of your artistic talent. You're LEAGUES ahead of me :'(


Scottr5680 responds:

Yay! Glad you like it :)
I too am jealous of so many other great artists out there and have a rather low opinion of my own work. But I think that jealousy can drive us to better ourselves as long as we don't let it defeat us.

I love this piece. It is simply amazing. I am literally left awe stricken. 5/5 5/5

As for the message of the Tower of Babel... It actually says it is impossible to reach the greatest height, no matter how hard man kind tries something will bring it down

Thank you! :)

I should clarify that this isn't meant to represent the message of the story. It's actually more so the opposite. The story seems to have a negative outlook on what people can or should be allowed to accomplish. I, however, believe people are capable of greatness, that there is a bright future for us. By what means would we be brought down? War, disease, natural disaster, etc. If we work together to find solutions to these problems (rather than fighting in pointless wars), there's no telling how far we may go. So the idea is that we do as they were doing in the story by building the tower, to reach for the greatest heights.

I should also clarify that I'm no expert on these writings. This is just based on my thoughts of the story.
