UNIQUE REALM ILLUSTRATED ISSUE #4 COVER BACKGROUND PAINTING IS COMING ALONG

The background digital painting is starting to take shape for this new Nyx illustration cover artwork for my indie comic magazine Unique Realm Illustrated Issue 4 featuring the story of Twisted Fate. The concept for the cover artwork is inspired by Dante’s Divine Comedy Inferno when he’s about to enter the gates of Hell. I envision the scouts of Hell are waiting for any unwelcome guest while Nyx stands before the gates taking on any who challenge her.
