The Demon's Circle by VonStreff The Demon's Circle by VonStreff
Entrapped within this ring of ancient stones, a demon awaits. It hungers for the emotions and life of the traveler, waiting to feed on them. A horrible place, an evil place, but if one is careful and strong of will, also a place of prophecy and revelation...

The chains represent the bondage which the demon has to this circle. The stones are described as "like Stonehenge" by Stephen King. But I decided to give them a fantasy feel, making them seem old but man-made, perhaps by the ancient race hinted at in the books.

Here's the final video: youtu.be/GVc9Wxrut6k

I imagined it in more "celtic" style, less dark than your vision, but it's interesting too :)

Yeah, I actually envisioned it more Celtic too! But I wanted to show a different interpretation. :) Thanks!

You've got a good read on the thumbnail...so really on the larger scale it's just about detailing up. I'd say the clouds are a little same-same, the brush strokes are pretty apparent and the same size, so randomizing it up a bit and/or blending in some areas to soften them up might be good. The cool palette works, but I feel you could start to bring in a little more colour variation into the piece...not drastic as this is moonlit, but just to add a bit of vibrancy to the lighting. That moon is huuuuuge!
Nice work mate, you're improving perceptibly with each one!

its looking good, id say maybe move the moon so its not being blocked by the pillars
and those chains, if you made them look smaller it would give the pillars appear
bigger...unless there suppose to be like that. and dem trees, multiply those
suckers more but its still great....better than my attempts at landscapes :P

Well, that's kinda cool. Everything seems a bit... flat though, the towers I mean. Still cool though.

Flat, as in not textured enough? Or the ones in the back have no 3D? Your comment is very appreciated! :)

hmm... what I mean (I think) is that they seem to just have one side facing the viewer. Like those ones second from the right, they have very little colour difference between the sides, so it looks though there is only one side facing the viewer. Make sense?
