Inside Ebulon

What happens inside the mysterious stone monuments of Ebulon? 

They're hollowed out inside, with a library, kitchen, and privy. 

It's the headquarters of the skybax riders who practice air jousting, an ancient sport where challengers try to knock each other out of their pterosaur saddle. Loser parachutes to the ground.

Of course to paint such a thing, I had to imagine it first, which means a bit of ham-acting.

It's all part of Dinotopia: Journey to Chandara. The Dover edition contains a 30 page afterword that digs into the sketches, maquettes, and reference photos. Signed copies at the link in bio.
