A work i've done for the cubebrush worlds challenge.
it's about frozen giant octopuses sculptures and little villages built on top of them, here's the more detailed story :
An Octopus race, became powerful and prospere, punished by the planet’s god, because they were considered disrespectful to him by creating their own religion and building temples to their own effigy. He dropped the water level and frozen everything, killing all the civilization.
Little religious villages built on the «islands», ruins of the ancient civilization, staying high, avoiding the deadly ice zone in the in the low-levels, using wind as a ressource. They are forced by the God to stay near the octopus ruins, to see everyday what happened to the too ambitious and disrespectful people.
