Genius Loci: Salt flats by Ranarh Genius Loci: Salt flats by Ranarh
"The iunas were as happy as ever, but when we had to get off and tie up a package again, our boots were encrusted with salt within minutes, so thickly we could barely lift our feet. The shankeh runner that accompanied us, however, picked salt flowers like you and I would wild herbs, and found them most tasty."
— Nigan, merchant

I repainted a concept I once did as a weekly challenge for the theme salt flats. My world's desert continent also has salt wastes, of course; but I never liked the lack of grandeur in the original and expanded it. See the original version on my Artstation account, www.artstation.com/artwork/xx2…

Excellent work. It's always great when a vibrant imagination combines with skilled artistry, and you clearly have both. Well done.

Thanks. I can use the encouragement because development of Genius Loci has become rather slow of late.

The place isn't so far off from the salt flats in South America. The iunas (the birds) however are much harder to come by. I guess you could paint an ostrich yellow?

:D Don't worry, ostriches are supposed to be really stupid, they'll probably make it easy for you.
