this drawing is part of a world that i have been creating in my mind for a long time. it takes place in the same world as my boneyard( http://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/kiabugboy/the-boneyard) and harpoon town ( http://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/kiabugboy/harpoon-town) drawing. its also probably the most far fetched aspect of the world as it most likely violates every scientific laws out there

by the end of the 21st century humans have achieved great progress in science, however, war, poverty, and overpopulation still exists. global companies became increasingly corrupted, using new technologies without fully understanding it. mining industries started using dangerous machines that slowly destroyed the inside of the earth, causing continents to become unstable and eventually fall apart. many scientists tried to explain this threat to the masses but no one really believed it would happen, sheltered in their ignorance while corrupted companies always end up silencing those who try to harm their profits. as the inevitable approaches, all of the world's few remaining non-corrupted organizations started an underground project to save whatever can be saved. The pods, humanity's last 'escape pod', are basically mobile cities containing the few remaining civilizations after the world has fallen apart during the great quake. unexpected by the scientists, many flora and faunas (mainly invertebrates) were genetically altered heavily before the great quake, fast growing, extreme climate resistant, and dangerous biological oddities soon thrive after the cataclysm. nature was forced into an evolutionary arms race against these creatures until eventually, a completely different biosphere emerges. colossal towering jungles that grow within weeks filled with giant fast breeding arthropods along with dinosaur-like birds and reptiles covers most of the main continent where all of the pods are. it became impossible to create a new civilization under such a hostile environment. so, the pods must keep moving in fixed routes simply to keep itself from being severely overgrown with vegetation and to avoid being breached with the creatures that dwell in the jungles. thankfully, solar energy and bio fuel created from the descendants of the many genetically engineered, oil rich plants can keep the pods almost perpetually moving. usually the pods are divided into 4 levels each as high as an apartment made to house many of the residence as well as militaries, laboratories and turrets while under each levels are sewage and air circulation systems along with farms growing crops requiring no sunlight, and breeding one of the harmless arthropods as a main source of meat

Really intriguing story to go along with such a neatly done digital painting. I literally can't find anything to complain about with this piece. Keep up the good work and be sure to check out my art as well!
