What's in Here?

Prompt #3 - Rootways

You trace the energy drain to its source– somewhere down in the city below. The roads themselves feel rich with energy, and you discover that the power has sunk beneath the surface of the city down into the roots below. To your surprise, you discover intricate, recently grown tunnels of roots that stretch under the city in a complex labyrinth. Who has built them? Why? How are they taking the orb’s power? Draw or write about your character investigating the root tunnels below the city. Your piece must include your character and either the root tunnels or those responsible for them.


Aurolin finds something interesting at the bottom of a cenote. She needs her light to follow it down....

      Thank you so much! I want to make this one a proper full painting like I did for the Marooned in Mushrooms chapter 2 prompt, but for now it will just have to be like this. :/

      Or black space, as the case may be. Wink

      Thank you so much. I wanted to do so much for this one, but I'm just so out of steam. The quest is soooo cool, and I wish I had had the energy to get my imagined pictures all onto the site... Alas.
