:iconsnippyfanclub::iconsaysplz: WANT MORE APOCALYPSE? READ ZEE COMIC HERE:

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)

Looking at your work, I can see that you specialize in apocalyptic scenarios. Nice work. It's good, very good.

Picture misused by yet another pointless acoustic band...
Should it be used as cover, it should definitely be this: [link]
