This is concept work for my reinterpretation of the Epic of Gilgamesh. It's an attempt at loosely harmonizing the epic and certain historical data with the book of Genesis. I worked from the assumption that Gilgamesh and Nimrod are the same man, and that Gilgamesh builds the Tower of Babel.
This is what the tower looks like. I wanted it to have a vaguely industrial feel, with kilns belching smoke all day and night.
