I learned to fly and took a step outside

By volnaib
Once I knew all the tales
It`s time to turn back time
Follow the pale moonlight
Once I wished for this night
Faith brought me here
It`s time to cut the rope and fly

Fly to a dream
Far across the sea
All the burdens gone
Open the chest once more
Dark chest of wonders
Seen through the eyes
Of the one with pure heart
Once so long ago
(c) Nightwish, Dark Chest of Wonders

Speedpaint done in Krita. Had the darned contrast problem again! (I suppose I'll have to read this whole article to solve it. At the very least.)
Used no refs, but looked up several images (including Shadow of Mordor sceneries and volcanoes) for inspiration.
