With the contest extended, I thought I'd try and make another environment for *wewy's contest. This time, less realistic and more fantasy-like ( phew, just made it in too )....

Glitter Grotto is a medium sized city which was originally a mining town, but evolved into a tourist attraction. Built around the biggest crystal inside what is actually a colossal geode rather than a true cave, this city is nested where it can be well-lit from the light coming from the crystal, as well as feeding most of its power-needs from the energy it radiates. Its light gives off a beautiful sight as it refracts through the glassy bodies of millions of other huge gems scattered all over the rock walls, each appearing as a faint purple flash from such a distance.

And as you can imagine, if this were a stage in a game, you would be sure to run into some very interesting characters ( and enemies ) in this dark, mysterious world :evileyes:

Very cool, man!
crystals are awesome. Can you make a quick picture of massive crystal deposits floating in the sky? I would love to see it on your site.

Sorry, no free requests. Whatever time I don't spend on paying commissions I prefer to work on one of many of my own ideas that I've been wanting to execute for ages :idea:

If you want to see one that badly you could try commissioning me, I have done crystals in commissions before [link] :)
When I get settled financially I will commision something from you. Great work all around and thanks for posting it. Cheers.
omg this is gorgeous. You need to set up a page of all these rooms. Holy christ I wish I could draw like that. As I had told you a while ago, I use paint shop pro and make rooms people like but damn I wish I could do this type of detail. This be great for a secret room with treaure in it. This is sort of what I am interested in but lower on the glitter. I want to set you up for our site on the main log in page for art work for people to take notice. I also sent you a note :)
