Cold Planet II by Nortenyo Cold Planet II by Nortenyo
This is a work that is final, but I think I will revist and continue working on. Imagine this a mining colony on some freezing cold planet...a sort of grand canyon if it was in the ice age. The Miners harvest a special crystal which can be broken down into useful minerals and other chemical compounds. They in turn use these materials to build their cities and power and feed their populations. C&C welcome. Keep in mind that I may add a vehicle coming into frame and and landing pad as well as more indicia or another far away settlement.

Cold Planet II by *Nortenyo is a great design that was executed extremely well. The color choice is perfect for the icey mining facility that stands in defiance against the harsh elements. I really like how the inside lighting gives the viewer perspective on how large this building is by revealing the floors of the complex. Great vision with this one. ( Featured by Aeires )

This reminds me of Forerunner architecture from Halo, the large metallic texture and the familiar blue.. I like :)

Thanks man. This piece was done in 2006 and is dying for an upgrade...It's something for me to think about in my free time, but I'm glad you like it.
