Rangers of Refuge Harbor by Fallonart Rangers of Refuge Harbor by Fallonart
When you're thrown from your home, build a new one.

When the last City-state of the midland plains was threatened its people fled before they could be captured and forced to live under the unbending law of the Xomadhin Theocracy. Their armies fought to delay the inevitable advance while the city's citizens ran towards the dark of the dense swampland, which had long occupied their nightmares. The people's only protection were the Ranger core, long considered outcasts, but who were the only ones able to communicate with the natives and lead the people of the city-state to relative safety. Though many died in that long march, most of the people made it to the tribal villages of the interior. The Rangers, once outcast, were now venerated so much that they made up the core of their society, a society that would have to meld with a new people in order to survive.
The people of the swamp, the Junult, helped the Rangers into safety. In return, the Rangers brought new methods of engineering and sciences to the Junult. As the Xomadhin hacked into the border between their two civilizations more and more secrets were shared until the Rangers and Junult ceased to be, and were instead one people.

Harnessed Giant Salamanders for water transportation. That's an awesome and original idea.

For anyone curious, I've put together a process .gif for this painting. It's small, the image is HUGE so it took me forever to make it and I almost didn't, but it's something!

Wow, made it to the semi finals! I'm floored, I want to thank everyone who helped me get here through your views and likes!

In such incredible company as all the other semi finalists I'm not sure I deserve to be here, but that won't stop me enjoying the ride!

Thanks! I really struggled with perspective when I started but, obstinately, I just kept at it. Now I almost detest something so simple as one point, haha.

Amazing concept here, with the bridges connecting the small islands. I really like it. :)

Thanks! I gad inspiration from the Aztec city, I'm blanking on the name, that was basically a floating city if man-made islands and bridges. Their farming methods aren't shown very well in this piece but were quite ingenious.

Nice! What kinds of farming methods do they use?

They would raise the rich swampy soil and silt up in terraces and spread the seed on them, effectively making island plots of farmland connected (I think/imagine) by wooden planks and the like. Kind of half natural half engineered irrigation in an area below water level, rich in nutrients.
