    New piece

    Hey guys, been a while since i've been here. Would like some opinions on this landscape. it's sort of a desert cliff environment, sort of post apocalyptic flavor. id say its like half done maybe, needs more narrative elements, thoughts would be great.

    Hi chris

    Buddy I cannot imagine how this structure came into being naturally! so it has got to be man made yes!? and the city or town thing on the top is not really working for me personally it looks a bit lost on its own. Sorry about that mate, but I did have some ideas whilst looking at it if that helps.

    So with the ideas mill on full in my mind try this on for a solution or direction, Sink it into a crater or canyon and run the bridges out into the walls or the rim like the spokes of a wheel. They can in some cases be structural and in others just walkways, the centre section can be a crashed ship or a recycled nightmare of bits and pieces to go with your post apocalyptic scenario.

    hows that for a suggestion? That was the best I came up with on short notice, the other one I had was for an insect hive with humanoid slaves or workers on some of the bridges as reference devices to show size and scale.

    I will go off and have another think on it matey and see what else I can come up with, all the very best with it matey.

    Thanks L ship. To be honest i just started playing with shapes. I'm not to keen on the man made idea as it kind of has a naturalistic feel about it (even if it makes sod all sense), i like the hive idea, i was kind of thinking that would be a good explanation, well good enough solution when i was reading through the first half of your crit; just after the part about it being preposterous for it to be a natural formation. lol. yeah man i agree that the city sucks hard, i'ts just a kinda place holder for something better, just trying to make my intentions clear-ish.

    Thanks for the input pal, always considerate and useful. Take care!

    More thoughts .....s o brace yourself

    Hi Chris

    Whilst looking at this thing again this morning, I must admit that the hive idea is starting to make some sense. Have a look at this:-

    I remembered it from a game that I used to play and love to death called "Tabula Rasa" and the hive above was one of the locations you went in do Kill stuff with super large caliber weapons of massive destruction!! LOL it it was epic.
    Any way that was one of the locations you could look at if you google image search "Tabula Rasa screenshots" the other thing I thought of was a volcanic environment where you get all kinds of bridges, slopes and weirdness which sort of fits.

    I hope this helps you out some more matey stay well and keep posting.

    @ Mr.Sanders

    That landscape looks like its been shaped by wind or water erosion or maybe both

    New piece

    If you google images for 'wind erosion' you can find more examples that stranger shapes have happened naturally.

    So with some more study I think it can look convincing.

    To me the whole city and the landscape its on looks like something that got uncovered lifted up into the sky by some unknown force , like Cloud City in Star wars.

    The Direction for finding a story are : why would someone build a city there? or is it the remains of something that now lay in ruin?
    Why are we looking at that city?
