Another piece for Imagined Realms! This is actually an older sketch that I went back and colored. It was fun to revisit this one. :) 

There is a 1.5 hr process video available for this piece on my Imagined Realms kickstarter page, so if you'd like to see how this was created, please check it out.

(this breaks my record of "most cats included in a picture," with 15 cats. because reasons.)

This is, by the way, exactly what I imagine Prince Gabriel von Roggen und Bernstein's "ivory tower" to look like. He is my main OC and a reclusive and scholarly young gentleman (albeit an eccentric one).

Beautiful. I swear everything I see in my minds eye, you seem to create. You're either psychic or just have great talent :) I do believe it's the latter.

Very colourful and vivid imagination. Reminds me on the old video game Arcanum that was themed around magic and technology coexisting together in the same realm.

I absolutely LOVE this piece. I'm always fascinated by artwork that no matter how many times you look at it you can always find something NEW about it. It helps that I love libraries! Very beautiful.

Ah! I just figured it out. Another reason why I probably love this so much is because it reminds me of a scene in the movie Rise of the Guardians where North shows us his home at the North Pole! The color scheme is somewhat similar and I think they both encourage the idea of magic!

Heh, I know it's weird to come back and post again but I just had this revelation and thought I'd share it. Have a good day! XD

Hey, this is pretty awesome! I feel like there could be a cool story behind it. do you have any backstory or should I just create something in my mind? lol

Reminds me of Dumbledore's office in the Harry Potter films. :D

Cats never need reasons. :) Very nice. To quote Liz Lemon - "I want to go to there."
