Outpost of the Blue Slate Peaks by xTernal7 Outpost of the Blue Slate Peaks by xTernal7
Of all the outposts that have no right existing, this one probably has the least right of them all. Yet for some reason, someone is putting a great effort not only to maintain an outpost this high in the mountains — they're also making sure that their presence is big.

There's plenty of challenges one has to overcome in order to maintain an outpost of this size: as the land is cold and inhospitable and resourceless, all the construction materials for the outpost need to be brought from the valley. After the construction is complete, the outpost also requires food and fuel to keep the fires going. As getting enough firewood is hard, some also resort to putting thick animal furs to the outside walls of the buildings in a bid to keep the cold out.

Took way too long to make. It's a revision of the idea I've had with an earlier piece (No Keep is lying Higher). It's not an outright remake, though — I've decided to make it bigger this time around. I'm rather satisfied with the buildings, but the background kinda didn't turn out the way I wanted.

Looks awesome. maybe use fainter outlines on the clouds so they are more distinguishable from the mountain details?
