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: [link]

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!

Thanks for the feedback, as always. Yeah, huge moon, love it. :D I plan to give this piece a working over sometime soon, so I'll be sure to implement your points. Thanks again!
