Underworld Picture

The second image drawn in my mythology-based series. So many myth/cultures contain some sort of underworld realm, and from what I can tell most are in some way assotiated with the dead. Of course one cannot always say that these underground worlds of the dead are necessarily bad places, but I still wanted to create a feeling of a place that is incredibly vast, silent, and maybe a bit lonely.

As evident there is a lot of influence from real underground caves/caverns, with the stalactites and stalagmites to indicate that this is indeed an underground scene. at the same time, this landscape is supposed to feel huge, so there are also mountains, rivers, valleys and canyons - different levels of the underworld.
