You gotta love these, not only the artwork has incredible details and great photomanipulation, with a dark apocalyptic theme to it. But the characters are a hoot.
What you gotta love about these characters is even though the world is basically destroyed from utter destruction and there is nothing but rubble and skeletons piled in the streets. They at least find the bright side of things and keep their sanity in order...somewhat.
Plus these "Romantically Apocalyptic" pieces really set something different compare to other pieces. Your looking at beautifully detailed post apocalyptic paintings and yet the humor puts a smile or a good giggle on you at least. Definitely brightens up the day.
I believe in due time this series can become a great hit. All I can say its beautiful and it gave me a good chuckle. Bravo!
The "Romantically Apocalyptic" series is full of twisted humor. The dark dystopian world somehow feels warmer with these characters in it and I can't wait to see them explore it further. The main character is somehow as lovable as he is maniacal. He is somewhat reminiscent of Cobra Commander from the original G.I. Joe cartoon. I also really enjoy the Nazi inspired character designs. If there wasn't already a genre for surreal post-apocalyptic satire, I think it has just been created.
Alexiuss also manages to breath life into his highly detailed digital art. Hyper realistic digital work can often feel mechanical and lifeless (in my opinion), but here there is a bit of style and the narrative just adds to the enjoyment. I think the series keeps getting better... I hope it continues for a while.
This is definitely one of my favourites! Not only did I burst into laughter when he took out the cellphone in reaction for the broken PC but when I looked again, the "happy face"-smile next to zee captain made me laugh again. RA is love!
