    Into the Unknown
    E.O.W Round 28: Abandoned Colony Survivors

    Ted Nackman, UDF Research Division, 05/23/2245 - Recently we have had trouble with communications to Earth, and Ramirez tells me the power generators are acting up again, I don't know what the hell is going on but its been like this for about a month now. Only 23 more days and I'm off this pile of shit... seems like an eternity...

    Ted Nackman, UDF Research Division, 06/12/2245 - We're FUCKED. The portal to Earth has dissapeared!!

    Ted Nackman, UDF Research Division, 08/27/2245 - Today an interdimensional tear appeared in the sky, it is sucking up everything, INCLUDING US. Thankfully the anti gravity generator is still working and we haven't yet lost any altitude, but its only a matter of time.

    Ted Nackman, UDF Research Division, 08/30/2245 - We have decided to take our chances. Staying here means certain death, by unanomious vote we have decided to turn off the anti grav generator and fall into the tear. Only god knows where the hell it leads.

    Alright, here we go:

    The Gathering Darkness

    E.O.W Round 28: Abandoned Colony Survivors


    Facing the eclipse of not one but both of their suns, these colonists must abandon their home for brighter ground as not even the hull of their long ago crashed ship will be able to protect them against the coming extremes.

    One colonist scrambled behind some piping in the outpost's hallways. He watched on with horror as the rest of the inhabitants met their fate. Through his paniced breaths he swore to himself, he would survive.

    (note: this was all created within the last 3 hours, using tools at my desktop, and all original material. Just want to avoid the potential flame-starting like we saw in a recent community thread )

    tyranx, that sure is inspiring. I don't even want to imagin what the original-resolution size that is!
    That's one of those things I'd want to have framed in my study

    corbeledg: That doesn't scream 'environment' to me at all... In fact you need to point your entry into that specific direction for this weekly activity... :-)

    Tyranx: Ah, I'll try! Still some time left, I hope, inspiration strucks...

    My original idea of environment was to put a person hiding from the elements, but as I drew I started to realize a dark environment would be much more intense if it was focused on a person's face. That way I could show the location's stark shadows and eerieness just by reflecting light. I'll try to make another environment piece tho!

    Funkytown: that's funky! :-)
    rawwad: great as usual!
    corbeledg: yeah, cou can put in characters, but the environment really needs to be the 'protagonist' of the piece. Just like it's said in the description up there! :-)

    Awesome entries!
    E.O.W Round 28: Abandoned Colony Survivors
    After more than twenty years, there was nothing left of the floating colony but falling debris amid the megastorm. Only a handful of colonists made it through the burning sky and violent winds to land on one of the small polyp islands dotting the lower atmosphere of this alien planet.

    Mining Colony

    Here's mine.

    E.O.W Round 28: Abandoned Colony Survivors

    The Titan Mining Colonys final day came sooner then expected. While drilling, the crew had burst a pocket of gasses which when exposed for certain periods of time, protected only with miner gear, would mean certain death. The project had to be immediately abandoned. All that where not present for evacuation where presumed dead. Everyone had boarded the evacuation vehicles and were safely on their way to Earth.... except for four miners who had gone on a survey of land for future drilling and they were protected with surveyors gears for such an event. They had come back minutes too late, only to witness their only way off the planet quickly disappear.

    The cleft of skin, once damp, warm and dark, now was a living hell for the colony only the one remained deep in the innermost crease. For all fungus fear the onset of summer..and shorts.
