A stranger in a strange land by JJcanvas A stranger in a strange land by JJcanvas
A new scenery with some sort of alien structures remains!
I'll leave the story to your imagination, as usual! :)

It was mostly an experimental piece, but I hope you like it!

Cheers !

P.S. - People are saying this reminds them of some level from the game Borderlands. For what it's worth, I've only played about 30 minutes of that game before getting bored, so I have never seen the level people are talking about :p

500 or so years later after Clue brought the world of Tron into the human world and destroyed mankind with his army, he realized that he and his species can no longer survive in the real world. As a last attempt he tried to return to the world of Tron by not with out facing resistance from the few groups of humans and some of his kind who despised him. It was a battle to be written down in history, but no one lived to read it. Lack of resources soon lead to the extinction of the human kind, except for one innocent soul who was abandoned by her mother. Left in the wild to be brought up by mother nature herself. Now she roams the valleys of this world unknown to her, surrounded by strange technology which she dare not dwell on. Intrigued yet terrified she roams this world alone never knowing what had happened, just surrounded by the beautiful nature.

Idk why but this story (influenced by the movie Tron: Legacy) was the first thing that came to my mind when i saw this masterpiece. I really LOVE this work of art. I hope u draw more like this. Really really beautiful. :)

Looks like a giant corkscrew that has been snapped a bit when the New Years champagne cork popped out at an angle.

Jah, any place where the aliens left their ruins, for whatever reason, tended to have glowing lines in them, except the lines more resembled damascus steel and the whorls at the heart of fingerprints.
singularitycomplex Featured By Owner May 25, 2013
from the thumbnail I thought that was a stargate, which would have been awesome :(

Let me just add Crysis to the list of things this reminds us of. Great picture!

I love when you can see a silhouette in landscape picture. It gives a beautiful dimension to the picture.

Odd, this reminds me of TRON xDDD

It did remind me of the Eridian ruins scattered throughout Borderlands

i've noticed that you often like to draw a girl with hair to scale the scenery
Portosilva Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2013  Student General Artist
This is awesome! I don't really think this looks much like Borderlands though, this is much more clean and refined than what I've seen from that game.

It looks like a river monster was turned to stone, but it still has some life in it, hence the blue light.
tonystardreamer Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I don't know what to say other than this is awesome. I love the stark contrast between the landscape and the alien structures.

i never thought of more detail in the background. i like the effect though:)

God, your ideas are amazing! Love the small details in the scenery and the elegant simplicity of the giant structures. The neon blue in the structures is brilliant! :)

All of your landscape work is astounding. I actually only ran into it because I was searching for landscape images on google, and one of your works came up!

amazing scene! :O
Snowedragon Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2012
I hope the artist sees this,

I find your work here to be one of the most amazing pieces I have seen in some time, would you please e-mail me? I would love to discuss the possibility of using the image for the cover art of an independently published RPG (pen and paper) I have been working on for some time.

Thank you,
