The Rebel City



"Who are we, if not dreamers? A dozen hundred light-years from home; who is to judge?"
"We are workers! The fields and waters of Tal—have your dreams replaced your memories?"
The lights of Oreth glittered in the distant rain, bright reds and greens piercing through a dense mist. Two aircraft streaked overhead, soon to be consumed by the clouds.
What did it cost?
Here, away from the Dynasty's iron grip, the two of them were as apart as Al'lysium Nebula from Hyades Cluster. In their minds, the faces of the fallen.

This painting is a remake of one of my earlier works. I took this in a much more gloomy and somber direction, inspired by the dreamlike landscapes of Simon Stålenhag, which I felt fit the purpose of the setting far better in the context of my worldbuilding project/WIP novel. It was also one of my first attempts at incorporating character art into environment design, the result of which I'm rather satisfied with compared to my previous attempts. I've definitely learned a lot about both character and environment painting in the process. Expect to see more like it!
