Ants vs. Termites by inetgrafx Ants vs. Termites by inetgrafx
I helped out Ricardo Meixueiro (3D Modelling Dept.) with a rough concept art for an internal contest at Meduzarts ([link]).
The artwork should depict a battle between Termites and Ants. The Termites reside in those high monolithic structures and advance towards the forest claiming their land, where as the Ants trying to protect their goods ...

Those insects are going to be shown as intelligent robotic/mechanic lifeforms carrying weaponry to dramatize the effect ...

The latest Version of CyGen is going to be used to populate the scene with 3d entities.

Software used:
Maya 2009, Photoshop CS4

Ants shoot formic acid and termites can shoot glue......Ant vs Termite is still epic even in its natural form.

I'm sorry. You seemed to be poorly informed, but Ricardo is a friend and an ex-work colleague of mine!
I worked together with him on this internal contest at Meduzarts. I painted the conceptart over a screenshot of his basic modelling and
provided him with an art direction. Furthermore ... the link you've attached is the final piece, I helped him there with the cygen process, lighting and rendering.
I see you are fairly new to DA and your behaviour for a start is frankly offensive.
Please research your subject beforehand, and formulate responses accordingly.
Have a look at his own website, where he grants me credits on that particular piece: [link]

Thanks for noticing!
