Sorry, I should explain. You know - mold in the corners and on walls of castle. Because snow is melted in lava. So there's enought warm, and still wet to create a microclimat, where funguses can easily grow up.
That is absolutely gorgeous! The concept is really clever! It isn't very often one sees snow and lava in the same place. And congratulations on both the daily deviation and the opportunity to work for Cradle! Really awesome! Expect a watch!
cool looking concept illustration. One thing.. if these human-like figures suppose to be statues i guess they look too close to humans actually. It gives a scale error between humans and around them. Figures in background are really good in atmospheric perspective. Just writing it down as notes to myself too..
