the ruined city e'n by DodgingTires the ruined city e'n by DodgingTires
long ago it was once a bustling city in the northern reaches of the world that fell into ruin as it slowly began to sink into the ocean as the landmass split in two damaging said regions structural supports deep below the surface...

another piece cut out from my old sketchbook (like cutting out your beating heart) hope you enjoy.. touched up slightly and yes finally finished :D

I'm impressed with the technical detail and design of the buldings. Lemme get this straight, the land is being split apart, compromising the foundations of the buildings. Reminds me of Ceasaria in Isreal, there the first huge port using concrete was built, yet it sunk within a century 'cos it was built on sand. I thought there would be more mountain rubble, but since this was drawn from a distance, hard to tell.

The trouble is, your thumbs look nowhere as good as the enlarged version, so you don't get the attention you deserve.

thank you. yes i've heard that before about the thumbs but i'm not sure there is anything that can be done about that.

well the northern landmass this city is situated upon has already split apart. this is due in part to several key supports being seriously damaged during an assault on the city. but to further clear it up the world is entirely artificial, while the surface seems entirely natural below the surface it's a different story.

when the supports where damaged several of them collapsed compromising this region causing the landmass to split and in turn ruining the city and the mountain range that the city is situated in to slowly sink into the sea.
