"You know, until I infiltrated the Pirates of the Silent Scream organization under cover, I always thought their name referred to their habit of spacing unruly passengers on captured vessels. When I was taken to their base, I knew then I was wrong. It is buried deep among the marshes of an uncharted planet in the Hyades Cluster, in an ancient alien ruin. I've uploaded the coordinates. The trees in that marsh can grow up to 1,000 feet tall, and the canopy challenges the skyline of the capitol cities of the coreworlds. But that structure...it must be hundreds of thousands of years old. Who built it? I cannot say. I'm no xenologist, but I've never seen its like. It is unsettling to look at and even more nerve-wracking to live in day after day. I believe that the Silent Scream pirates get their fierce reputation not because they are inherently blood-thirsty, but because of that place they've chosen as their base. At night, the walls whisper to you. You can't make out the words, but it transmits vague associations of unspeakably vile acts and wanton carnage. I'll be glad when you guys extract me so I can lay low somewhere on the right side of sanity for a while. One other note, besides the security layout and data codes I sent you, be aware that when you hit this place, there's a heavy guard force stationed in the sublevels. There are extensive, half-flooded, root-choked catacombs down there of unwholesome ancientness. I could not get any details, but it seemed to me that the guards down there aren't posted to keep anyone out...but instead to keep something trapped inside. I'm going to go down and check it out later, to make sure they haven't got any nasty surprises down there. Wait for my comsignal to start your raid. Good luck." -- last transmission from Commander Donovan Summers, Special Operative, Guardsmen Interstellar Security Service, anti-piracy division.
This is for the Beyond the Frontiers Lost Land contest. Enjoy, and let me know what you think.
I made a blue version of the render and although the lighting works better with that i decided to go with the yellow/beigey theme. Turned off shadows and did just a line render. Hopefully this adheres to the requirements
EDIT: Changed the name. I highly doubt there is one with this name
This is my entry for the Darksiders. I entered at the nick of time, as I changed my idea two times and started this image from scratch few days ago...
Little explanation behind the image..
Knowing how "lucky" l am this is how my end would probably look like. Before the fires and smokes from above and from within the earth would eventually annihilate everything we'we known, I would become a winner of the last lottery on the planet. But, that's not just your average lottery. This lottery will be held by the Charred Council. Winner would retain it's soul by becoming the eternal servant of the servant. In my case I would get stuck forever with the Watcher.
Being the Watchers servant is everything but pleasant and easy experience, or so I'm told. But I get to keep my soul, right,,, right?! :/
