Fantasy Art Wednesday

Get inspired with this week’s Fantasy Art Wednesday, where fun fantasy artwork is combined with a writing prompt to get your creative juices flowing.

This beautiful mountain valley reminds me of places I saw when I was traveling through the Alps. But imagine this isn’t the Alps–this is a fantasy world, where anything could be on the other side of that mountain.

The beauty of this place is deceiving, and this is no idyllic afternoon outing. You’re on a pressing  journey through these mountains; treacherous on foot, with steep, slippery surfaces, cold, wet weather, and scarce sources of food.

Is that a thick fog ahead, or is a dangerous storm gathering? Either way, going headlong into it isn’t wise. Best to stay here among the green grasses and flowers until it passes by. Why are you here in the first place? Are you running from something, seeking refuge and the protection in this remote wilderness? Or is there something so incredible on the other side of the pass that it’s worth any risk just to find it?

    For some reason I immediately imagined the mist as something, as beings that are slowly pulling themselves together, coalescing into a form, perhaps 2 figures, slowly walking towards the protagonist.

    It reminds me a bit of the Mountains of Doom in my Wolves of Vimar Series, where my little party nearly died. There’s that foreboding look to the pass.
    I think, back at the picture, there’s something lurking in the mist. It’s created the mist. Magically, or as a natural ability? It knows we’re there, but needs to hide. Why? Because it’s a predator, or is there some other reason?
