I had been listening to extra history podcast.. that gave me various thoughts about how civilization and kingdoms are built upon the corpses of its people.. How leaders often maneuver the soldiers as per their liking, not caring about lives as much as they should. Yet even after all of that, only the name of the officer are recorded..
I decided to show a grand castle at the far distance and contrasting it with a makeshift burial of graves of nameless heroes who died in defense of that castle. I wanted the light and mood to be peaceful yet kinda somber in the FG area.
Here is my exploration on the idea. If you have any feedback or comment please feel free to write it down :)
