Arcane Ruins: the portal opens

I’ve painted another piece of the Arcane Ruins terrain set. This time I went with a different take

On one side, it looks like an ordinary grey ruins, with a slight glow around the eyes. On the other side…

it’ an entirely different and more arcane scene.

Here’s the piece from the side, showing both ‘halves’ or the portal.

Oh, and if you’re wondering what the odd orange light in the top corner is – there was a fancy candle being burned on the table as I took these images!

    That’s a great idea, it really conveys the feel of an arcane portal between two worlds

    Very cool. What do you use for the base texture?

      It was a Gale Force 9 terrain set, three sizes of rock and some concrete blocks in the same pack. I mixed the three rocks, which was their fine, medium, and rocky basing grit to make the base materials.

    Great work, Dave- I like the purple you used for the arcane side of the portal especially!

    Fun idea! The gray side looks nice of course, but I really like the purple tones!
