Chased Through Lava by DerekRestivo Chased Through Lava by DerekRestivo
I've been spending a lot of time lately networking with potential clients and arranging paid work, so I made this mostly in my spare time to keep my skills fresh. The idea started as a quick Lovecraft-inspired speedpaint to establish a twisted landscape. At some point I added lava because a friend had asked if I'd do a piece with lava, and then the bat riders and fleeing woman were added at the request of another friend through my facebook page. Ever since re-watching the Heavy Metal movie last year, I've wanted to paint something with bat riders! As for the rocks and temple entrance, I actually kept returning to this piece to continue adding small details. I felt no rush on this painting, so I just had a fun continuing to rework the textures.

Glad to hear you didn't rush this painting and gave it the it deserves, the end result looks awesome!
That, and the bat riders were a great add. :D
