Aeons did pass,
but the dead did not sleep forever,
in this night they woke.

Castle lights illuminated in the dark,
forsaken the fortress had been,
the ancients had returned.


done quite a while back... been on the background for my homepage [link] for a while. my first experimental piece with environmental stuffs and used photoshop for it. took some reference for colors from a piece by Yanick Dusseault.

The Environmentals:
Sky Castle
Ancient Tree

I love this sort of stuff. How do you create such epic backgrounds? I love how you have capsulated a dark and scarey night, brilliant. Jak.
