Well :) This was taken from a dream actually. I was investigating "strange happenings" in a Scottish seaside town. Buildings being destroyed, people dying etc. I thought it was Cthulhu Mythos related but, after investigating in local records I could find no information. So I went to a local shrine/statue and asked for help. A mysterious ghostly figure appeared and started to give me information, as we talked. Then, the entities sent some servants of the dark after us. I was picking them off one by one with magic, but I could not keep up. So at the end, I called down the "Maelstrom" and fried everything in the area with a great gout of magic. Then I woke up. So this picture came into being.
I did do something along these lines back a bit in the gallery, with a knight Templar doing the "Holy Fry-up" :) Hopefully this is a bit more accomplished. Took a long while to do this, rendering off each beastie then masking it into the scene. Then I Sandstorm actioned the beasties and spent a while toning it down a bit. Slight film grain over the end image.
Any comments, feel free, still not sure about it.
