Coming up with this one was a little hard because Shelby is pictured (or will be) on every other Chapter Art but she's just a kid in the prologue and it centers more on David Bly anyway. So, here's a scene of David in the tomb looking for the Vril-ya key. I used a frame from the prologue but improved the stone materials (because the original mats didn't look good in such a large picture) and did a better job on the torch's fire. I'm definitely going to go back and improve the fire effects in the actual prologue once I get around to updating it all.
I updated this chapter artwork by changing the background from a solid wall to a darkened hallway. I created/painted a brand new fire effect, updated all skin and hair materials, and improved the lighting. I like this newly updated chapter art far better than the older versions.
I just now updated this artwork for what I hope is the final time. I brightened the back hallway a bit, improved the post-work, and fixed a hard edge I saw on the flames. I do believe this one is now ready for print!
