Formicidae

Hello,
I worked on this image as a personal project for about two months. It is a war between futuristic-mechanical Ants and Termites. They are fighting to get control over the forest.Termites want to eat it while Ants want to live in it. This image was created in Maya, rendered in Mental Ray and used Photoshop to finish it. I used the latest version of CyGen by Daniel Kvasznicza to populate the battle field and I got inspired on the idea of a war between ants and termites from Sebastien Dufour. I hope you like it.

That is spectacular. The composition is very well put together with the dust of the battlefield giving the real auro to the atmosphere. The lighting is also superb and it's astonishing how nothing stands out but simply blends into the environment. Epic piece!
