Desert Planet

by StellarWind Elsydeon

StellarWind Elsydeon As the harsh daytime sun sets and the moons begin to rise, the hardy organisms clinging to life on the dunes and rocky outcroppings of a sand-blasted, sparsely-inhabited fringe world awaken into activity. Sessile plant-creatures anchored to the rocks spread out their feeding tendrils whilst a small lizard-like creature, its tail superficially resembling its head as a means to fool would-be predators, regards a techno-organic tunneling construct - part-grown, part-built - with intrigue.

In the distance, a lone Alectan mechanic is hard at work, repairing an old atmospheric processing unit in an isolated outpost. This is hardly one of her usual haunts, but out here, sometimes odd jobs take you to very unusual places…

    The background reminds me of 'The Starry Night'. Very relaxing to look at actually, great work. :)

    I love the level of detail you put in Stel! One normally wouldn't expect to see a desert teeming with life but you managed to pull it off spectacularly.
