I've been racking my brain for a couple of days trying to come up with a concept. Then I asked myself "what do I think of when I here the word spectaculr"? Fireworks, views, and very large things came to mind. This will be a homecoming celebration for a huge army. The castle that they are returning to is huge also. It will be on a moonlit night so that the spectacular view can be seen as well. The thing that looks like a tree in the sketch is actualy fireworks. The castle is on top of a hill with a road leading up to it. I didn't draw any of the peoples, horses, or dragons.

The story:
The soldiers have finally defeated the enemy, and news of their return has preceded them. Everyone from the castle and surrounding villages has gathered to celebrate their return.

This is the basic layout of the terrain. I still need to refine it, create foliage, and create the waterfalls. The castle will be on the corner of the cliff. The fireworks will be going off over the castle, and the army will be coming up the road from the beach, where there will be ships. The POV will be from the back of a dragon that is coming in for a landing at the castle.

Lots of work, but a cool idea with a classic fantasy theme - good luck!
