“And suddenly the onyx pulses,

magma deep and earthen heavy, around you.”



An oil painting study inspired by Essun from N.K. Jemisin’s Hugo award winning Broken Earth Trilogy. I’ve been rereading the trilogy and have a new level of appreciation for the richness of the descriptions, lore, worldbuilding, and magic system. Without mentioning too many spoilers, this was a visual response from being inspired by the flickering obelisks and the magic systems in the world of the Broken Earth Trilogy.
