[Rifts:2112] Art Post III

I recently became aware of the work of Zdzisław Beksiński and I immediately became a fan. His work is a perfect evocation, as opposed to a direct inspiration in the case of the other art I've posted, of the feel I'm going for. In particular, it evokes an idea I picked up from an entry in the Rifts Adventure Guide, that the reality of alien worlds is slowly leaking through various Gates and changing the physical and metaphysical laws of reality in the areas around them.

The image below, incidentally, is exactly how I envision a stable Gate.
