Hi! This is a picture I did for Fantasy Sci-fi Fusion Contest. [link]


Future world... The world is heading for collapse because of constant wars. Technology took utter control over the people and not only them. Hi-tech robots became lords of their own creators... Scientists couldn't have controlled over them and
help of Special ops was needed. Brave and devoted soldiers had to face with destructive power of mindless machines.
The war wasn't equal at all. Countless strength of robots was too resistant for all the armie's forces. The end of the war seems to be not so close yet. One day all the sky was getting brighter and brighter until it became quitely white. Afterwards, people noticed red light spreading on huge distance. Some of the spectators decided to check this light.... There they found very strange and old looking ship, like nothing they had knew before, even from history. The ship landed on the ruins of city which was one of the battlefield between people and machines. The war was still in progress, but there were some days when machines flied away and were preparing to new assault. Mysterious ship which some people have seen turned out to be shelter for real fantasy looking knights... It was very bizzare situation for people. They were adapted to machines, and hi-tech inventions... but these Fantasy knights were absolutely new to them. Fortunately, strangers had good intention. They didn't know how they arrived here, they remember only light from the sky. They knew english good so communication was fluent and people pleased for help well armoured knight in fight against brutal machines...

The story has no ending, I decided to depict some of the scene from the center of battlefield. I wanted to show cooperation between fantasy knights and future soldiers in fight against the machines- of course people's invention.

looks a bit warhammer-y, but still original. Well done, clearly your skill is quite significant.
