Topic: [request] illustration for a cutscene: a dam

we have this cutscene (between sunshine paradise act 2 & 3) where Surge sees a dam. Then Surge gets surprised, saying "What the... that dam wasn't here yesterday. How the heck did that get built so fast?!"

The thing is: the user never sees that dam. We must have an illustration of some kind, so that we can convey the idea. My original idea is to put the illustration on top of the dialog box where surge says "what the... that dam wasn't here yesterday.", but i accept suggestions of course.

the illustration should consider a dam in the context of Sunshine Paradise, of course.

this is the text of the cutscene:

// cutscene 3: Sunshine Paradise, between act 2 and 3
STRING_300          "Not so far away, <color=$COLOR_SURGE>Surge</color> sees a dam."
STRING_301          "What the... that dam wasn't here yesterday. How the heck did that get built so fast?!"
STRING_302          "Surge looks around, but Neon isn't there."
STRING_303          "Neeeeeeeooooooooon? Are you okay? Where are you? Neeeooon? Neeoon?!"
STRING_304          "Neon must've been captured... or maybe he ran off when he saw some of those creatures. Either way, he's in trouble and I have to find him."
STRING_305          "A young animal comes out of the woods."
STRING_306          "<color=$COLOR_DANGER>HELP!!!</color> They're coming! Run! Run for your life!"
STRING_307          "The animal gets grabbed by two of them..."
STRING_308          "and they disappear with it."
STRING_309          "<color=$COLOR_SURGE>Surge</color> is in shock."
STRING_310          "What!? It's just... gone."
STRING_311          "just like when Neon and I – wait a second... I remember these things! They appear out of nowhere and ambush whoever they are after."
STRING_312          "So, these strange creatures of darkness are the ones behind the disappearances of innocent animals..."
STRING_313          "and more of them are starting to appear."
STRING_314          "Looks like it's up to me to stop whoever's behind this..."

i think so, but there should be a clue that the dam is located in sunshine paradise. It has to be convincing.

I have no clue how to do this tongue ; maybe the green mountains of the sunshine paradise background should be in the illustration ; I guess the big sun in the sky would be nice too.

In fact, I have no idea what I'm talking about wink All that is needed is that the dam must be located, indeed, in Sunshine Paradise.
