:iconsnippyfanclub::iconsaysplz: WANT MORE APOCALYPSE? READ ZEE COMIC HERE: romanticallyapocalyptic.com/1


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Eternal twilight had released its grip upon the world.
The moon had risen to see the land turned over, torn apart.
The shadows of the glowing, decimated, silent cities have returned.
The scorched, black, metallic skeletons of buildings have appeared from the silver mist of mercury and sulfur.
The radioactive dust had settled on the piles of our bones.
How blind and how thoughtless was our move.
How pointless as it seemed now, our war for land.
That was waged in the name of unity and god.
That brought a great downfall,
And the eternal winter,
A dawn of thermonuclear reckoning and our eventual extinction…

Nay, evolution of survivors into… death itself.

I think this may be my favorite piece from you, and you have a lot of fantastic work to choose from! I love the concept, and the myriad of details. It is just such an intriguing mix of organic and structural decay. Even the conquering figure, though crawling with technology, seems frozen in place while he is slowly eaten away.

Absolutely love it!

(and yes, the perspective is made of win :P)

I don't know what all the imagery injected in this image is supposed to represent, but nevertheless it's beauty manages to be reflective, haunting, and inspiring all at once.

One thing I find very interesting is the figure in this image seems to contrast greatly with the environment around him. The area is dark and oppressive, and though he seems to be rather small in stature to the environment it's like he's challenging it.

Truly magnificent!

This is brilliant!! I especially love the shadows and light in the background/sky. I also find how you drew the building and other stuff to be very interesting and really unique-looking! I like how it's slowly breaking apart and shards are being sent around.

You're very talented for sure! Great job!

I somewhat resent the use of a crucifix in this one. I don't believe that religious symbols should be used in darkly-emotive art, for reasons of respect and such. But good work, poignant as always.

who says it's a crucifix or an intended religious symbol?
maybe it's just two crossed beams.

crucifix also used on graves. take it up with the christians who decided to bury their dead instead of pile them up and burn them. not the artist trying to symbolize lack/loss of life.

Who's to say I don't like the idea of using crosses for graves, either? And I'm not 'taking it up' with anyone, just expressing my opinion.
