    Hmmm... can this take place in any era? The book of Revelation hasn't happened yet, so can it be depicted in the near future? Or should it be from when it was written (2nd-3rd century A.D.)?

    Would posting an image of Lady Gaga or almost any other contemporary "star" count as a submission? How about Kim K.?

    (kidding, obviously...)

    *dusts off his tablet*

    Ok, let`s have a go at this...

    Basic idea - a long lost temple with a giant figure of the Babylonian "Babe" with her...erm, entrance...

    Also, if anyone has any good reference images of both caves and temples AND of a figure in that pose, I`d really appreciate it. I`m pulling this one off w/o refs ATM, and, well...yea.
    I so much do very suck with painting environments, you know... ;______;

    PxelSlayer Great concept O_O man! I'm not sure about the lightsource from inside the entrance though, looks a little dominating / distracting. Using the light breaking through the clouds I think works by itself. You should try and look at some HR Giger works. I've a couple of links, see what you think. First from Skyrim concept art; http://loudmouthedgamers.com/blog/wp...cept-art-5.jpg
    The second is a Giger painting called Witches dance; http://tumblr.grogery.com/post/12589...ches-dance-via

    Thanks, Dayle!

    You know, funny you should post that Azura image...I was greatly inspired by Skyrims huge daedric sculptures TBQH (playing it obsessively ever since it got out), and I think it kinda shows...lol

    Well, back to reference hunting I go...

    PxelSlayer *sigh*, I love Skyrim.

    Anyway, rough sketch of my concept, at least compositionally. Will do more research and get some stronger references but for tonight wanted to post my initial idea.
