As I had just completed a desert landscape, I wanted to try to do the opposite; a polar landscape.
At the North Pole stands Castle Borealis, a gigantic palace made entirely of ice crafted by the sorcerer Niiros thousands of years ago as a gift to his mate. It has the very organic appearance of water being funneled up through the sea ice and bent into towering spires and twisting gates. Every night the palace lights up and out of it’s massive spire shines the northern lights.
The elusive and magical Ice Wyrms reside here: wingless, furry Draconians who possess great knowledge and power.
