The first panel of the first Chapter of the Wormworld Saga. Painted in 2009, this is pretty much a historical artwork for me. Interestingly, I wasn't able to find a sketch or drawing for this illustration. I must have painted it from scratch.
The intro of the Wormworld Saga was stretched out later in production. That's why the preliminary version shows the school at the bottom, which later was moved into the second part of the intro, after the title.
