The second sheet finished, still wanted to focus on an item or prop but I wanted to build something more complex than the items on the equipment sheet. I'm much happier with the result of this than the first sheet, particularly what I was able to do playing with texture and custom brushes. Though parts of it remain a little looser than I would like but I still think its worth including in my portfolio at this time.

Background: With the collapse of imperial power and the upheaval that followed much was lost, almost any item intact or otherwise is prized by the current generation of artificiers and smiths. Once used as a means to carry items on long overland journeys many of these creations are now used by those willing to brave the ruins in search of lost treasures. Over time many of these platforms have been covered in carvings and runes by their handlers, some mundane crests or heraldry, others symbols of power meant to reinforce the magics that keep the platforms aloft or to ward off the horrors that lurk in the shadows. With their appearance becoming ever more arcane and the nature of what they are now used for many have taken to calling them sarcophagi.
