Guardian Lions by Gaius31duke Guardian Lions by Gaius31duke
Created for a weekly Eow on Conceptart.org

Two Gigantic lion stautes guarding the path to an ancient mountain city now lost to history.

I have always loved how in fantasy storys a traveller would happen upon ancient statues in the middle of a vast wilderness, hinting at long vanished civilisations.

About 2 evenings work in CS 3.

You work fast, man. It generally takes me up to a year or two to finish a paiting - true also, I forget about them and begin others.

2 evenings only? Damn, I should stop reading at that kind of information. Makes me sad about my own low speed.
Love the mood anyway. May I ask what is the original size of the picture? Always wondered that kind of info. Thanks ;)
