Mythian City

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Stephen Watkins, Jr.

This one was done in February of 2002 (mech pencil on 8(1/2)*11 paper). It is a picture of one of the legendary Flying Ships of Mythia on final approach to a docking tower in a grand Mythian City perched on cliffs overlooking the jungle far below. Mythia is a continent to the north in my world. Despite it's northern latitude, it stays warm enough for a jungle because it's surrounded by valcanoes and hot springs. The people of Mythia are dark-skinned, and highly technologically advanced in comparison to many other cultures. However, the different continents have drifted far apart, and the people have long lost contact or even memory of their ever being other continents. Artist's Challenge: My rune appears in this pic twice, very close together.
