Finally,the last piece of the promised series:
The scene has been redrawn several times and it took me quite a lot of time to handle the crusted gem, but the transparency and refraction still need pretty much improvement
Again, thanks those of you who have suggested me ideas for this scene, they helped me explore more different possibilities
Thx, I'll keep going.
About the beast, originally I didn't think much about the backstory, but after your asking, I have something sparkle in my head, I can't say there won't be one in the future
