I am working on an exciting project for a playmat.

The theme is Tragedy of Elspeth and here are the first sketches done of Ajani and recumbent Elspeth





And the whole scene looks a bit like this - subject to modification

It wasn't easy to choose new art for this card. MC Esher's Drawing Hands seemed quite perfect with a galaxy background.
Happy how this turned out!

This is the final submission made on Monday for the Challenge.
Acrylic on canavas, 35 x 25 cm


The inspiration was taken mostly from the following board




" Spending a year in Ireland, i have travelled to several historical locations, seen very inspiring landscapes and cultural features.
The most impressive was the 10th century Hibernian-Romanesque gate remaining in the St James cemetery in Castledermot. Trees and plants are very present in Irish culture and I loved the way some were sculpted by the strong coastal winds, taking humanoid shapes.
I have always been fond of the idea of a portal going from one world into another, from a cold dark forest into a sunny avenue leading to a sacred Celtic grove, or Nemeton."
