So i'm working on the side to get some images together for my Caelum sky novel- I've decided to make it a small- published illustrated novel, sorta like Sandman by Neil Gaiman- that there'll be a page of text, and a corresponding illustration. Caelum sky's been my literary baby for over 5 years now, and I'm excited to get things in motion. The books'll be broken into 4-5 chapters each, and about 100 pages long.

This image would be a part of Chapter 2, when our main character Neri wakes up after being devoured whole by a demon that rips her soul apart to the tiniest bit left. With some bizarrely divine intervention, she manages to resurrect some consciousness in a completely different form. After... well, this alradeck.deviantart.com/art/On…
, she spends some time alone to come to terms with the fact that she's dead as a door-nail, and probably put in hell for a very important reason. Depression generally ensues.
These illustrations aren't going to be bound to any one style or feeling. Some'll be more cartoony, some will be more realistic, and some a mix of the two. This isn't the finalized image, just a WIP before I get to detailing down. Took about an hour and a half of painting so far.
