(http://assets.cgsociety.org/nvart/1204682813/1024bound)The term "Guardian Angels" refers to the tall towers seen in the image since they guard and watch over the city and remind of an angels wing.

Their roles are threefold:
1) Observation tower
2) Defense tower
3) Perimeter beacon

The scene is set during times with climate change: sand storms, hurricanes, wind storms and hot, heavy sun rays capable of making a great deal of damage.
Human kind returned to the roots of their prehistoric ancesters and build their homes in mountains, creating artificial caves and caverns.
The only way to survive the rapid climate change.

I produced this entry during approximately a week, days in and out, originally aprox @6000x5400

gorgeous imagery, really great towering architecture flowing off into the distance, i certainly get it.

Just a crit from an illustrative point of view i think a little more work could have gone into the ground rendering..just a bit of terrain variation and contrast adjustments wouldn't go amiss, otherwise..darn fine job:thumbsup:
