With this piece I wanted to create a fantasy environment that felt a bit mysterious, something that gives you the desire to explore. I took inspiration from games like Elder Scrolls and World of Warcraft. This was one of my favourite pieces to paint, I came up with a lot of ideas and story behind the scene, who the man on the bridge was and where the rift might lead. I’d like to paint another couple of pieces inside this same world to flesh it out a little more. I really enjoyed painting the textures on the trees and leaves too.
