Here's another concept piece I threw together from various collaged artworks. You might recognize the bird from a recent MB post on alchemical artworks dating around the 15th century. The idea for this one is to show a room inside a castle where a giant bird thing is kept and fed by servents stabbing worm/snake creatures with spears from a pit in the floor. When I start drawing this the characters, bird thing will change a lot as I do my own thing to it but the basic composition you see here will stay the same. Originally I was going to have fishing rods hanging weird bits of bait creatures over the walls to feed the bird but I opted for the idea with the snake pit and two servants. I want to do something interesting with the chest of the bird creature, I'll either add some sort of grotesque face or maybe dozens of eyes staring out through the feathers.
