I love how the person is stepping up to the gate, it symbolizes the point of no return in his adventure, when he enters the gate he will face whatever he must to get to the end. At the end, the truth is revealed and his final fight begins.
IDKY, but when I saw this, I immediately thought of a fturistic Morrowind. Entering those Dwemer ruins at the beginnning of the main quest, and the things to the right are like cliff racers. I love the picture, it's awesome.
