Concept art: Stalactites Cathedral

Here is the 1st scene when they get inside the cave, that holds Solomons great treasure, but also some strange rituals of the kukuana people.

After stepping inside the cave and following a narrow way that led them to the next room they find an enormous place which was decorated by natural sculptures, such as stalactites, columns and stalagmites. It was described as being vaster than any cathedral built by man, windowless but lighted from shafts in the roof connected with the outside and as I said was decorated by all this marvelous minerals, which gave a view that no one could possible imagine.

Here some quick sketches i did to visualise the cave.


Also I took Phil's advice and i'm experimenting to visualize all the scenes, so after i will chose the ones i want to paint.
