The Fall Of Takamagahara by Borruen The Fall Of Takamagahara by Borruen
Thank you so much :iconcapricordestin: for suggesting it and of course :iconatramina: for featuring it!

Just to let you know, this drawing was chosen for the cover of the irish sci-fi/fantasy/horror magazine Albedo One #42!

check it out here:


it's an amazing magazine, with great stories (and illustrations haha)

yo yo!
Woa it's been a loooooooooooooong time since I made a pure drawing/painting! No manip this time!

My pc sucks so hard that it made me lose this piece TWICE. It started as a completely different thing, I worked on it for like 4 days and then, suddenly, the psd file gets corrupted! AARGHH X( After almost blowing the entire building up, I started working on it again, and lost some progress a few times because my pc is a bitch, a BIG FAT ANNOYING BICTH! But now the piece is complete, everything is ok and what started as a simple drawing, ended up taking me more than 3 weeks -.-


Takamagahara, the high plain of heaven, a realm in which no oni or any other unholy force has ever dared entering. Good and Evil remained in a stalemate since the very beginning of time. The balance that prevailed throughout the ages is starting to decline. Shinigami, the winged, black army general, has unleashed a direct attack on Sakaki, the tree of the holy spirit, whose roots hold heaven together, breaking once and for all the delicate equilibrium that kept the very fabric of reality safe. Now, the kami,(spirits that inhabit heaven) must defend their sacred lands and re-estabilish this balance.

It was inspired by the Holy Bible, shinto myths, El Shaddai: Rise Of The Metatron (check this game out!), Okami, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles, Chrono Trigger, Barroque, Rennaisance Art, Hokusai, Sumi-e, Ukyio-e.

Such a cool use of color and contrast. The image breaks up the space of the canvas very well.
