The Coral Highway by fmacmanus The Coral Highway by fmacmanus
The coral highway is a vast network of roads and tunnels that exist inside the coral matrix in Blue Valley. Through these tunnels, many families and caravans travel to various settlements and destinations all throughout the valley.

The creature depicted in this image, usually referred to as a Puffel is one of the main domesticated animals used to haul cargo throughout the valley. Throughout their lifespan their internal air bulbs grow until they are able to bear heavy loads, and many merchants even offer Puffel rides as a method of transportation! When they are born, their skin is transparent, showing their complex organs- however as they grow older the skin thickens until only small sections have the red glow about them.

This is so awesome. I love the color scheme, it all has a mix of syfy and dystopian feel to it, not really apocalyptic but quite dystopian.

Spectacular work! I love how you used blue & red to create so much contrast and focus towards the end of the highway! that creature in the distance looks really eerie haha. The story in this piece makes it much more interesting as well. :]
