It's a poddish alien landscape from MMO Tabula Rasa, by designer Chris J. Anderson. He's left NCsoft, and the gamemaker's loss is our gain, because he's posting never-before-seen images from his time there.

I love this image, above, of a totally industrial landscape. And below, you've got organic, firey goo. The premise of Tabula Rasa, a scifi shoot-em-up game, is that humans have allied with other "sentients" to fight evil aliens called the Bane. All the action takes place on alien worlds, which gives you breathtaking landscapes like the ones Anderson conceived here.

You can see more of Anderson's art in the forums at Concept Art. Or check out his new website.
