The goal was to practice the 3D interior concept with Danar Worya's tutorial.

It was a real pleasure to work on this scene and make it the most realistic possible based on the references!

I was inspired by the Indiana Jones movie “Temple of Doom” for this work and wanted to create a temple in a volcano as a throne room. My inspiration was ancient Egypt and also some sci-fi with the Goa’uld in Stargate.

The goal was to design an environment where the only design point would be natural elements, no human construction. I imagined a landscape with giant mushroom-shaped corals that would have grown at the bottom of an ocean on an exoplanet. They would then have dried up over millions of years. During this time the alien coral would have turned into rock, resulting in this atypical desert landscape. This is how the Coraucher was born, a mixture of the French words Coraux (Coral) and Rocher (Rock).

I was inspired by Florent Lebrun's artwork "Pinnacles" which is really great!

In a future where water has been contaminated by a world-class chemical accident. The only reserves of drinking water are water towers. These have been mastered by the army and are carefully guarded. However, tonight things will change, and drinking water resources will finally be shared with everyone.

It has been a long time since I had the idea of a water tower, which was humanity's last hope, and I am glad that I have finally taken the time to realize this idea.

Ancient Guardians is a project created as part of The Rookies "Forbidden Lands, Fallen Empires, and Ancient Guardians" contest. The brief was to create a single, epic illustration that is both fantastic yet believable, original yet relateable, and which demonstrates high levels of artistic skill and storytelling ability.

For this, I decided to make an underground temple in the manner of a buried Pantheon that served a humanoid civilization as a council chamber.

The story behind this image is a group of explorers discovering this fantastic place through a hole at the top of this buried temple.

Concept Art created for the Grand Space Opera Artstation's challenge. I took this opportunity to really challenge myself and spend more time on the design part. I tried to have an original shape and functional for a black hole bomb which brings energy to a ringworld.
