Here's some artwork from my Fantasy Series.

It depicts some environmental artwork of a place called Ghaya.

I hope you like it!

Looks great so far! I think you have a really intersting concept for your novel, i hope you'll keep us updated with your progress.

Lovely imagery so far, and I'm looking forward to seeing more. Somehow the name evokes Ghana in West Africa despite the European trappings of the art though. Not a criticism, mind you, but an unusual contrast in my opinion.

I guess since it has been a year (I forgot I posted this), I should show you guys some new artwork  8)
With your blessing to show more, here's more!

Here are some character designs:

Here's the map that I have for the series:

I also have some animal and plant life that I created just for this world. One such is here:

I took a break from creating images to double down on writing the novel. I've finished drafting the first novel, and have moved into revision with it. I have a great editor who's helping me tune the story so that it's as epic and beautiful as I can possibly make it.

And, if you'd like to get a short taste of what my style is like, you can read (or listen! I had a friend narrate it!) to a short story I posted here:

It's free, and you don't have to download anything to experience it.

I'm sorry if this comes off as self-promotional. I just figured I'd follow up since a few of you asked about my progress. I'm usually invisible and spend more time lurking here than actually posting... I guess I should change that. :) It's been a long road getting to this point. I'm trying to make an epic fantasy that can truly compare to some of my favorites. I don't believe I can top them, but I'm sure trying! :P

I'd love to know what you think!
