Reduced to ruins by supernatural cataclysms, the city of Neverwinter rises from the ashes to reclaim its title as the Jewel of the North. Yet even as its citizens return and rebuild, dark forces pursue their own goals and vendettas, any one of which could tear the city apart.
This image gave me lots of fun elements to play with - crumbling epic architecture, crashing waves, and an Undead Dragon.
The arched road way provided a great device with which to draw the eye towards the focal point of the Dragon's head, whilst also giving us depth and scale. The spotlight on the distant towers helps frame the Dragon's head even as the saturated colours of it's eyes/mouth and drool pull the eye.
