Capturing Audio......
We touched down nearly 20 minutes ago, roughly 3.2 klicks from Entry Bay 17. The heat is unbearable as ever. Why anyone would have chosen to stay on this infernal planet is beyond me, topside or underground.

It's been 2 weeks since we've heard from any of the bay command posts. No low-frequency radio signals, no S.O.S.. Nothing. It's as if the entire underground community just disappeared, thousands of citizens quelled under miles and miles of rock and dust.

The team is less than thrilled to be out here. We have 5 days in this shithole. 5 days to find anything or anyone that can explain the silence. After that we're leaving this wasteland far behind. These people made a choice to live here, they can die with the consequences. Get in, get out, move on. That's the plan and we're not going to deviate.

Just over 1 klick left before we can get out of this god forsaken heat and move underground. Like rats living under the floorboards. What were they thinking...

A personal piece for The Crit Corner's 4th art challenge: Design and Arid Environment. I still have some work to do on this guy, but it's passable for the moment. I'll make sure to post an updated version once I have the time to finalize. Thanks for stopping by!

The scifi ships and the bleak planet remind me a great deal of Dune! :)

amazing design, reminds me of chronicle of riddick when they  arrive on Crematoria, good concept though.

This is very good... I like the story even better than the image. Is there more to the story?
DylanPierpont Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2013
Thanks Dom! There kind of is. Not with dialogue but with plot. This was loosely based on an idea that a friend of mine and I started designing a few years ago. The project never went anywhere but I always liked the idea of a city that had to move underground to escape the heat above. It was just fun for me to write something from a character's perspective in the world. Glad you like it. I might push the story further in the future... ;)

I'd love to read the story once it's ready. I find it very compelling.
