This is great. I don't read as much as I should, but, if this was on a book cover, I'd be handing over my cash.

I can't describe how much this inspires me. From the solid blackness of it to the subtle markins, to the vast landscape that it doinates, I really love it.

I like the distant planet. It's like some sort of futuristic sci-fi LOTR

I always wanted to write a novel with something like this in it! Completely awe-inspiring.

Thought I would have to comment on this superb image, because it (quite by coincidence), illustrates perfectly a scene from a long fantasy story/novel I wrote as a kid. Seeing this has inspired me to get back into writing: well done, Chris!

haha, why would it :P
it's rather interesting, i didn't think it was similar to lord of the rings, perhaps an alternative version of it

well, you never know.:shrug: Especially considering the fact that your art really has nothing to do with Lord of the rings,:XD: so, it’s possible you hate everything associated with it….i’m glad this is not the case. Anyhow, this particular picture somehow reminds me of scene where Frodo Sam and the Tree (that giant alike tree) arrive at the Saruman’s tower – something similar just better, ‘cause in your picture the atmosphere is way more hopeless (?) As I don’t know have you seen the movie, maybe this doesn’t make any sense, but that’s what I was reminded of when saw this piece:)

Is this straight out of your imagination or inspired by some book/show? It's awesome in any case

well, i just wanted to make something with a strange contrast, something dark in the middle of a rather bright desert. I thought it would become a city at the end but i decided against it, so it's just some mysterious monolith instead :P

thank you :)

I'd say it was inspired by Chninkel Comicbook (Jean Van Hamme/Grzegorz Rosiński).
Pretty neat work.

It's cool to see something less dark from you and more sci-fi/surreal.

I'm thinking the opposite, now. I like that you just suggest so many objects. Allusion is a lot easier in text than it is in illustration, I think.
