Visualising the city of Chiaroscuro from the Exalted RPG (Fan Art not official).

I worked on this piece on and off for over a year and whilst it's not perfect it has been a massive learning experience and has contributed to a shift in my production workflow, it was a challenge but great fun also.

"Also called the Great City of Glass, Chiaroscuro is quite definitive. In the First Age, it was a city of tall glass spires, the glass of which was as hard as steel and shimmered in the Southern sun in a thousand hues. In its towers lived a population of some 20 million souls. With the fall of the First Age, however, the city was destroyed by some unknown means. Thousands upon thousands of its glass towers were thrown down, destroying the city. "
