As the title suggests, this piece was a collaboration between myself and Brian from Currents of Space. Some of you have seen his work, but for those who haven’t, check him out. He’s incredible! We’ve been working on this for the better part of the last three weeks. We’ve put a lot of effort into this one and Brian was able to teach me a lot. So a big thank you to Brian and without further ado… Enjoy!
( I recommend full view for this one)
After tracking the strange energy signature for more than a week, the survey team decided it was worth the risk to attempt contact with it. With no documented evidence of aliens, beyond single cell organisms, found anywhere in the cosmos; if they were to discover some sort of intelligent life, there’s no telling the rewards that might be theirs.
Dropping through the upper reaches of the atmosphere, they could see a blue point of light pouring exotic particles into the sky from somewhere in the cloud wrapped mountains. The boson sensor readouts began fluctuating wildly as they drew nearer, and the froth of subatomic particles began to boil in the space around the ship. Suddenly the pilot gasped in terror as he watched all of their flight systems begin to power down with no apparent cause. Frantic, he tried to transfer full control to his manual hydraulic override. Only due to his skill at forestalling the inevitable were they able to successfully crashland their ship on the side of a mountain not far from the alien tower itself.
Now they are stranded with little supplies and not enough food; and the eerie energy put out by the tower is interfering with their long range communication equipment, making a call for help impossible. Marooned on a foreign world with no way home, their only hope of survival is to make their way to the tower and whatever mysteries lay inside.
This is the third piece in my mountain top landscape series called “Forgotten Waters”.
While exploring an isolated mountain range you find a peak that overlooks a massive lake that has not been touched by humans in centuries. It’s so pristine and clean that you’re not sure if you want to tell others for fear that it will be overrun and eventually destroyed.
I created this with a strong message in mind and hopefully I’ve been able to translate that to you through this piece. I recommend clicking the image for a better view. I hope you enjoy.
For those of you who saw my landscape/terraspace post a few days ago, here is the first images from those works in progress. In that previous post I asked the question, should I make a landscape or terraspace. Well, I made both so you can decide which you like better. This is my second attempt at a landscape and my first attempt at a terraspace piece. I really had fun making these so I’ve decided to make a small series of landscapes like these. So, here they are. I hope you enjoy them.
This is a landscape I’ve been working on. If any of you check out my deviant art you’ll recognize this. It’s been posted there for about a week now as part of a mother’s day theme I put together. You can check it out still by using the link in the sidebar to my deviant art. I’ve been waiting to post this for a few days now, so without further ado…
Edit: Mothers Day theme on Deviant Art has been taken down.
