Aberrant Revelation by alexiuss Aberrant Revelation by alexiuss
On top of the declining, antediluvian world,
The last prelate overseer made a final pass over his lands.
By the power of the elements he felt a shifting of the balance in the celestial heavens.
Black and silver snow started falling from above. It had a distinct taste of ash and sulfur.
“Be this the day of my reckoning?” The overseer asked himself.
Long did he foresee the end, yet he did nothing to prevent it,
For it was beyond his elemental wisdom to stop it.
In a few seconds, every living cell in these mountains would utter
A singular cry of torment and agony,
As its interiors would be mangled and ruptured, faster then he would make another step.
He felt the coming of the unyielding rays so hot that they would melt the mountaintops themselves.
The echo of death would go 15 times around the planet, before all would fall calm.
An inanimate presence made itself known to him. Something was watching him.
He closed his eyes to discern and apprehend it.
High up in the heavens themselves.
A grim, metallic eye.
A wave of sound passed through it, just as the overseer had realized that the eye was alive. This realization was most useless to him, for the language spoken was strange, and primitive, a babble of static noises.
“Thermonuclear Fusion cascade weapon test… ready”
“Location confirmed. Fire when ready”
“Hey, do you think there is anything alive down there?”
“Nah, the planet is old and we’re 90% sure that nothing can survive at such low temperature and high altitude”
“Lets heat up this joint, shall we?”

This work is absolutely crazy! :woohoo: I am owed :faint: I don't know how you obtained the brush effects from the sky and the land, but they are absolutely gorgeous. Pls, watermark it! It would be a pitty for anybody to be able to make a printscreen out of this beauty :cries: Your signature is too small placed there, it won't protect it.

I don't have to look anywhere.
My fans do that and the crushing of the art thieves.
Besides I don't mind art being on desktop sites. Art is made to be shared, as long as they don't make thousands of profit in it, I don't mind.

Have you thought about making any endeavors into graphic novel/ storyboarding? This, and sever other of your works, looks like it could be blown up into a full-scale storyline.

I could, but id get bored concentrating on one theme, plus i take a month to draw one artwork so any storyboarding being a quick job is out of the question

Great work, it looks so familiar and yet with a sense of something very alien and wrong. I particularly like the where the mountains meet the sky in the middle and it looks like the mountains are actually bleeding off into the clouds.

Such as warm atmosphere at the top, but it cooled down quite a bit when I scrolled down towards the bottom of the picture.

Well done, it's not often I see pictures that give so much atmosphere.
