"Deep below the earth, where the light cannot reach ,lurks a twisted thing.

Over centuries, it has grown on blood and sacrifice to wrap its roots around the heart of the world.

And it is said that when the millennium turns and the kingdoms of man are ripe, it will bear a single fruit."

    I’m speechless face to this construction, on my view, full of poetry and Mythology!!! I’m sure that your photos don’t deserve your work! It would be great to be able to see it in real life!!!!
    My coup de coeur of the day!

      Thank you… I have just written an article on the construction methods and techniques. It will appear in Figure Painter Magazine. The photos were very difficult to get right… you are correct it really is a piece that is better in person.

    Saw this madness in person and can attest that, as good at the photos are, they really don’t compare. Gorgeous work that seriously suits the character.

    What a fabulous scenery. It is really impressive. I wish I could have the chance to see it in person one day.

  • Ben Snyder (Demihuman)

    This one was my favorite from Crystal Brush. So many great images in this diorama and great ways to interpret what is shown. Colors and light, interior/exterior fantasy/terror just so good. Thanks for bringing it into the world!
