This was a commission I got to show the final scene in a D&D Campaign, this is the most grand scale painting I’ve ever worked on and every new picture brings new challenges, this one brought a horde of challenges. I haven’t worked so seriously on clouds, mountains, war, and especially … lava. I looked through quite a lot of pictures to see how it cools as it gets further from the source and reveals its brightness in the cracks where it can continue to push out. There’s no easy way to portray armies so tiny in scale, I suppose people never draw them that way for a reason. In the end I strived to make a colourful and mood setting picture, rich in texture.
