The fantasy landscape was created from the idea that I didn’t want to use real dirt or clumps of earth to create floating platforms in the sky. The two major platforms are created from a fallen tree to where you are able to see its roots. I wanted everything to be connected, so the creation of these lightning stair cases are what allows the flow from one area to the other. The mountain in the background has a staircase to a shrine for prayer. There is magic water at the bottom in the center; which through evaporation creates the light atmosphere for these masses of tree forms to float. Because I didn’t want the sky land to be un-accesable, there is a small area of rock that pillars down to “ground” with a staircase that leads all the way up.
