Is this for a game or something?

In any case, this is an excellent work of art. Believe it or not, it is one of the more realistic images of what colonization of the moon may look like in the future. While domed habitats have captured the imaginations of artists and writers alike, current data suggests that lunar settlement will be underground, where the inhabitants will be better protected from the extreme environment of the lunar surface. Here, if I am gauging the scale correctly, you have created an entire metropolis within the lunar crust. The most notable aspect is how you've created an environment that is both bright, as well as dark at the same time. It make sense actually, it is in a cave after all. Adding on to that, there is also a sense of claustrophobia, in spite of the large surroundings. The smaller buildings contrast heavily with the massive monoliths in the background. This strikes me as a setting for some kind of science fiction noir story. A world where the darkness is powerful.

i like the warmth of this piece, the epic feel. how it is overshadowed and is almost echoing through the caves.

We should build underground cities here, as prototype operations, for learning how to colonize the Moon, Mars, etc.

Dear sweet Chronos... so many stories. I can already imagine so much happening in this city alone that could change the fate of Transhumanity.
