EOW# 57 Solomon’s Temple
This is my representation of the library where all the deeds of every person are recorded. The filing system leaves something to be desired.
After months of wandering aimlessly in search of untold riches said to have been found in the underworld, Sancho sees a light...is it the treasure he seeks?, or just the entrance to the aboveworld
half a century after humanity had gone underground to avoid the perilous new conditions on earths war torn surface, these scavengers are trawling through the old sewers to find sun light bursting through a crack. Basking in the natural light they haven't seen for over a decade.
Similiar to the "The Kola Superdeep Borehole Project" where scientists attempted to drill as deep as possible into the earth's crust which started in 1970 and ended in 1989, the project was resumed in 2012 with far more interesting results than in the former attempt. After intensive drilling for months they stumbled into a hollow space with a cooler temperature, once they sent a team down into the hole the team at the surface got a mindblowing transmission.
"It's.....it's a tree..it is absolutely massive!!!"
Once the news spread it took the world by force, scientist's were scratching their heads trying to figure out a theory for the odd placement of this "tree", religious foundations refused to believe it at first and later on started to call the place "hell", "underworld" and started to quote old writings.
Until today the "Underworld" which it is called by the public is not solved yet but research is still under way.
Deep in the darkest depths of our planet dwells the "Primordeals." Their great city is carved into a hollowed out meteor that hit Earth during its early formation.
By 2030 the worlds cities had expanded dramatically and now cover 60% of the worlds land mass. With this the smog levels grew to an unrepairable state. Now the Earth is cloaked with thick smog that is rapidly killing all life. Humanity couldn’t find any answer to correct its apocalyptic mistake. However they found an answer to coexist rather than repair their mistake, by designing and building huge structures that span over earth's civilisations, to protect them from the choking smog. These masses of enormous structure were called Valhalla. Valhalla constantly pumped out oxygen, to create canopy that would sustain whatever life was underneath it. Valhalla was Earth's remedy. So the masses cities that were fortunate enough to have Valhalla’s blessing were, nicknamed, The Underworld. Now all life is found under Valhalla and no life ever ventures beyond its grasp.
'It was Humanities mistake, so we have been banished beneath to The Underworld, far from The Heavens’……….(erm…..some famous fella? ....... Elvis!)
description - A group of people have built a little place underground to live in.
will do better next time =x
discovered in the ice valleys of mars, a giant ship wreckage was found bearing marking and artifacts resmbling ancient greek culture.
further on from the site was a temple carved into the rock/ice wall,
with insciption telling of an exodus from the lost city of atlantis and a reference to the power source ( a giant crystal which sustained life on the new planet.) brought from the sunken island.
a new hope.light of life, a new place for human being, a new place to do what they did to the surface.till they lose their light.somehow
OH NO! OZONE! With 'highrise' hairstyles back in the trend Aquanet freaks totally depleated the Ozone. Because of the ferocious winds and torrential rains that swept across the earth people had to move underground and seek shelter and build their cities where they could not be destroyed. Welcome home.
Umm, yea. thats my story and i'm sticking to it!
Scientists began studying theses special ants after an accidental discovery. These ants make colonies inside the fallen drunk of the giant trees native on the planet. They size about the same as the human hand. What is interesting besides their glowing abdomen is their ability to make rope like stuctures to link their colonies on breakings in the wall of the fall tree trunks. Shown here is a newly born colony, while a full fledge colony is truely a magnificient underworld with millions of "rope" networks and ant hills.
During the past few months, renowned scientists and archaeologists from all over the world have been summoned to analyze a recent discovery in a location not yet disclosed. A small group of archaeologists who were on a search for the remnants of a legendary city unearthed more than enough proof that the city existed. Hidden within dense forests and vegetation, scientists have described the finding as "an intricate network of trenches and passageways that descends an astounding 300 ft into the ground." The complexity and vastness of the structure baffles even today's top architects. The elaborate architecture resembles that of Ancient Greece and remarkably remains intact after almost 2500 years. It is not yet known who built the underground city or what purpose it served but you can be sure the the 7 wonders of the ancient world will soon count 8.
"As the human race made progress in space travel, it soon allowed normal people to buy their own spaceship. Around the year 2403, the few hippies that were left alive on the earth, began to look for the source of love. Of course they were ridiculed by everyone, as usual. No one would belive that they actually found it- in the underworlds of the now terraformed Mars."
GAR'NM Cave City is inhabited by race of humanoids that evolved from humans but in some point in the past about 4000 years ago the whole population became allergic to natural light of the sun.At the beggining the elders of the tribe where thinking that only the light of sun is dangereus but after few months of living only during the night few dozens of people died.Whitout any other option the whole tribe moved to gigantic GAR'MN cave where in safety they live till now.
At first i wanted to do a concept about some kind of criminal underworld, but discarded it, and ended up with this instead. It's supposed to be an entrance to a large cave system. Located at the coastline it's ideal for smuggling etc.
"As you aproach the all seeing eye, the gates will open and the memories will fade. The bridge to the underworld you'll see as last."
Architecture influenced by Nordonian neo-Classical Art. Nordonians are the race of humanoids whose culture flourished in planetary system of Nodron approximately 30,000 years prior the New Age (when Solarians (human race) finally reached its outskirts). In 1st Centry N.A. Solarian by the name of Akshin Fohrot and his crew on the trip to distant Universe discovered planetary system of Nodron. To his amazement he had not found a single trace of Nordonian race. The only remnants of that great culture were huge megapolis's that covered many planets in that system. To this day it remains a mystery where they had vanished. It is speculated that Nordonians had discovered a new dimension, where they all had gone, but that is only a speculation ...
Tepsilia, a booming megastructure under the earth has become one of the most important sources for Trithium. During the 12th "Colony-Z War", it became a hideout for the 'Elders', C4-type synthetic humanoids.
"..and so the rest of us hid well down beneath the surface..who didnt believe us decided to stay and died after few days..only in dark humid places it cannot reach..only here we are safe.."
This piece is not in the poll because its author honorably admited it was a reworking of a previously started piece. It is on the other hand much changed form its original form, and quite beautitfull.
Neo Orleans 3054
It has been one hundred years since the gulf earthquake that finally settled New Orleans under the mud, and the subsequent invasion. The new hosts of Eorbscraef, formally known as Earth, have discovered a buried city during mining operations to harvest the last remnants of once rich resources.
Intrigued by the evidence of a unique culture, they have attempted to recreate the carnival atmosphere for an entertainment retreat, including populating the buildings with human women to complete the reenactment, however their only interest in humans is focused on slave labor and consumption.
But humans have changed little during the occupation, they still demand the right to be free, and to party, and they want Neo Orleans back! In this scene we see the Innhere resistance preparing for a showdown with the Sumorlida on R&R.
Leading the group is a woman fighting to free her sister, seen signaling from an upper balcony. The men in the ore barges are prepared to leap to battle once the captain of the Sumorlida has been eliminated.

To see the world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wildflower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.
PizzaExplosion and Hideyoshi were my favourites technically, but I gave my vote to Lyconeus for the idea and the fair illustration of this amazing space underground, filled with heaps of books.
my homepage: http://www.trickstertoys.com
was close between pizza explosion and shadana but went for shadana-I just love the atmosphere...Im also a sucker for long vertical peices
great technique, design and perspective in your final makes it a close second place for me, Hideyoshi. but Daveneale's entry just fits the topic better and has a mood that grabbed me. But definately very good work everyone
just making sure...I am allowed to chime in, right? Even if I didn't manage to participate?
incredible work here, I'm really blown away...My vote goes to daveneale, tho, mainly for the awesome capture of atmosphere & ambiance--as a piece of concept work, I could really see it as part of an awesome movie/book/etc
fantastic work all!!!
those are some damn fine enteries!!!!
