The old city by treijim The old city by treijim
Trelinia – city of hope, city of despair…

This city is a place from Cody’s Story that is currently going up on my site one chapter at a time. Those of you who have read it would know a little bit about the city, and of course would know it was abandoned long ago. Though it looks placid in this picture, the extremely harsh weather that occurs in the surrounding canyons became too much for its residents and the most glorious city of its time was simply left as it was.

Not much else to say about this picture. It was a few hours of airbrushing over an original sketch. I highly doubt it, but if you were to save the image and zoom right up to the field just before the main gate, you may spot Cody, Armorist on his right, and Seiji riding a Liogon on the left. They simply appear to be three shadows with a slight highlight.

Looks like a desolate place. I wonder where they grow their food.

The canyons used to be green as Eden, as you will find out later. They got their food from, well, need I explain anymore? =P

I've set aside tomorrow to get up to date with that story. I worked my way through nearly 200 messages & deviations in my message centre tonight.

I thought I'd do a much sharper difference between light and shadow in this one and have more reddish light and bluish shadow. Obviously it worked out.

Well the original pic is over 2200 pixels wide, so small details aren't hard with patience.
