Plot: an expedition to the center of the Earth discovers something truly amazing!

I made this picture in 3-4 days, some at home.. some at work in my lunch brake with my sandwich over the keyboard.. Anyway, my SBS will be mostly ritten because i didn't took printscreens. My end file has almost 90 layers, this would mean to take 90 screenshots, at home and at work.

I want to thank pixpix80 from Stockexchange for tha circuit board picture

Also fraserw2 from DeviantArt for the ArmyMen picture (5 years and 1691 days ago)

Not so good to create Sci-Fi creatures, but I love the Sci-Fi scenes, so I came out with this idea. Thanks to mqtrf for the pic of the rocks. The rest is imagination and hard work.

I used the source image to create the buildings.

UPDATE: Changes were made, due to suggestions. Made the rocks, background lighter to be seen. Flipped source image. As for the light source...this can be everywhere. There are moons, suns, or simple stars that reflect light from different directions. Just close your eyes and see. (5 years and 1690 days ago)
