Although not all of the secrets of these Ancient elephant-like statue have been unlocked, Elephantine enhance one's abilities, bestow protection and regeneration, and can be worshiped to give greater protection and even swifter healing.

I'm sorry to put out my Hi-res version since some of the details quite distracting for my eyes. Like the messy cracks & saturated shadows. I would like to make you enjoy the result from the preview version only as the reason for every matte painting quite embarrassing to see the messy details, so I seldom create the detailed versions of it.

Hollywood matte-painters like Dylan Cole taught me before; it isn't necessary for some paintings to be seen in detailed versions, if we're going to produce it to a large-cinema-scope scenes, we would do the 3D matte paintings, because the best-preview-renders should be in hires versions of pixels.

*Cheers*

This is lovely. The only distracting part is the white in the eyes. Being of stone, the white is too bright and distracting from an otherwise truly enchanting image.

I agree with you about the Hi-Res version not always being necessary in order to preserve the visual illusion created. Best of success to you!

author says:

Thank you, MossyB. I would like you to travel to my SBS. There's a credit to you there. ( ^~^)v

I blurred & darken the eyes before posting this, but it seems the statue so lifeless, since the main idea was an ancient idol with a protection and regeneration and blah2... so, it would be nice if the eyes should remain a little bit shiny.

its lovely work author I really like the background, and I think we can see enough details to not need a high res anyway
goodluck.
