This idea came to me today while driving to work. The portal was something in particular that I took a lot of time with. I took two gateways (see the stock references below) and put them together for it. The entire piece had to be adjusted a bit for the lighting.

I was aiming for a shimmering type effect with the gate but I couldn't quite do it the way I wanted, if you look closely you will see a wave like effect with some shimmer and slight distortions to lock in the effect.

I have to thank the folks who put stock up... I tend to be like a kid in the candy story with the choices... :)

The Sorceress(rammkitty-stock)
The background around the protal (kaistock)
The portal frame (KLStock)
The castle in the portal (Dezzan-Stock)

Just to reflect how odd I can be at times, I re-uploaded this twice as I noticed it had a bit of a cropping issue ... and the tower in the portal was at an angle that didn't look right to me...

Thanks I love this one myself. I am thinking of making another portal based piece in the near future, as I've learned a lot since this one :) Thanks for your kind words they are appreciated. :)

No, not sure why. It was before I started submitting to some groups or gained a lot more watchers... but it is one of my favorites. Essentially this is one I'd like to use for one of my books if I get off my butt and finish writing.
