A red tear appeared amongst the stars. When it fell, the earth gave way.
This is an original isometric pixel art piece I have been working on for a long time. It started out years ago as a pencil drawing that took its cue from Games Workshops Mordheim. Instead of “The Pit”, a typical crater I had this idea of a bottomless abyss and a river emptying into it with subterranean layers of ancient ruins now visible. I never finished the drawing, but the scene stuck. When I started out with pixel art in the beginning of 2018 and picked up some experience with my previous MTG Fan Art works, I wanted to do an original scene with a very limited palette. So it came back to me. It was a long journey to realise it and I picked up a lot of things along the way about pixel art by doing all these repeating patterns and working with such a limited palette.
