Ephemeral Throne by Saimain Ephemeral Throne by Saimain
Faeren sleeping in a partial reality, cradled and sheltered in the arms of nature. He's actually in a room, which is dissintrigrating into a forest around him. This took about three weeks to complete, off and on. Sketched first in pencil, then painted in Photoshop, and still one of my favorite pieces from 2005.
The original lineart sketch can be found here: [link]

You can learn more about Faeren and "The Wars of Avenan" storyline here: [link]

This picture is amazing <3 The lighting is gorgeous and.... the whole thing is just gorgeous! Even down to the smallest detail. (Which is pretty small!)

It's also a very interesting idea, as if you're maybe seeing part of his dream as he sleep in the room. :)
