"Don't wander too far off into the woods they said. Now I got lost. I didn't follow their advice. The trees become darker and darker as I was looking for a way home. The noises this old forest creates are bone chilling. Suddenly I see a strong red light and hide behind an old gnarly tree stump. Still I feel like a thousand eyes can see me. The sun just crossed the horizon. What my eyes saw must have been some ancient magic. They seemed to talk. I was curious but ultimately too scared to get any closer..."
Finally some new stuff! This one started by just playing with Quixel Megascans stuff. So much fun to play with by the way. Suddenly a creative spark and everything more or less fell into place from there. I've had a lot of fun playing with the light. Darker scenes are something I rarely do but took this opportunity to give the scene some otherwordly punch through the lights and effects.
The scene describes a magical meeting (much like a videocall nowadays I guess) between some very old acquaintences. Now are they old friends or old enemies... I leave it up to you.
