the Gates of Hel by WestlyLaFleur the Gates of Hel by WestlyLaFleur
--- An illustration commissioned by John Riordan over at Iron Gauntlet Industries for their upcoming TCG, "the Immortal Saga".

"The Immortal Saga is more than just a collectible card game. It is a story that the you write through your skirmishes and battles with other players. Your characters, immortals, are mortal sons and daughters of gods that, through intensive study of their deities' gifts, go into combat and come out victorious or dead. Through their mastery of the god-like powers bestowed to them from their heavenly masters, immortals summon the elemental powers of Air, Earth, Fire, Metal, Water and Wood. The world will bend to your might, its people will bow to your majesty. Will you be vengeful a vengeful general, a merciful healer, or a nomad questing for glory? Though the gods have given you this power, the choice is yours on your path to victory. To be remembered is immortality, to be forgotten is death."

- John Riordan

I would like to say that Westly I an amazing artist to work with. He is capable of a lot and continually strives to improve not only himself as an artist but the work he creates (if you follow his work you know what I am talking about).

Hell and Hel are two different places. Hell is the realm of Satan. Hel is both a person and a place. SHE, Hel, is the Nordic god of the underworld and her domain is named after her.

Excellent work. I find it odd how the sky looks hyper-realistic while the sand dunes look like CGI
