SCENE 1: 350 years ago a sorceress casts a curse of great power that forms a great dark wall between the upper city and the slums. The wall traps not only sunlight, but also the flow of magic and health. This leaves the people in the upper city "overdosed" on magic, living forever, almost zombies. The people below the wall are still passionate, but they have little health or sunlight. Reader doesn't know all the details of the curse.
But the queen's gaze did not rest upon the knight kneeling before her. In fact, it had shot across the room the moment before the doors to the great hall opened to reveal the child who would change everything.
Artwork for my recent cover and workshop in the new issue of Imagine FX, out now in the UK!I was pretty blown away at being on the cover for a third time! IFX asked me to come up with a new illustration after they were inspired by my old painting Fools Gold. So I pooled that together with some Brad Kunkle and Yoann Lossel inspiration and voila.
