Alexiuss frequently uses vivid colors in his "dreaministic" paintings. But for whatever reason, with "Prisoners of Subtle Imperfections", he's chosen a greyscale approach.

This shows a willingness to try a new approach on his typical post-apocalyptic romantic art. The end result is wonderful.

I'm one who considers greyscale to be (in some ways) superior to colored images, because a more deliberate tone can be conveyed.

You've gotta admire all the fine details, even in the furthest depths of the background. Clearly, Vitaly devotes hours and hours to making every little piece of debris stand out just as much as his focal point.

Great job dude. Nice to see a different take on your style.

Sorry I don't wanna be rude but that's not critic :nod: It should be in the comments section.

Oh don't worry about being rude... I re-read it, and I think you're right.
I had some critical stuff to say, but I got carried away in talking about all the positives that I lost my train of thought. But alas, he's approved it... so hopefully someone else will write up a more suitable critique.

The falling Tower is over and is going to kill or destroy another Tower right

Those...are some HUGE buildings in the background, and very ominous as well. This picture tells the story of an apocalypse that doesn't bore ;)

Great work.

Honest and realistic picturing, wonder if you see what most can't or have just read the manuscript of the elder that runs the zoo and biologcal science project of Earth.

Do you hear that Mr. And...Alexiuss ? Sound of inevitability bearing a collapse of the worldwide fiatdebt ponzi scheme ? It will be a sound of death for so many...
