A human male climbs frantically to a hidden location on a botanically and nature overgrown future Earth as the ominous devices arrive again to take us.

Just playing around with some ideas - quite a dark vision for me I guess, but I quite like it. :)

I used some shots of New York as ref etc.

Painted in CS3

Reminds of of that quote from "Fight Club," you know the one. ;)

In the world I see - you are stalking elk through the damp canyon forests around the ruins of Rockefeller Center. You'll wear leather clothes that will last you the rest of your life. You'll climb the wrist-thick kudzu vines that wrap the Sears Tower. And when you look down, you'll see tiny figures pounding corn, laying strips of venison on the empty car pool lane of some abandoned superhighway.

Quite an interesting conceptual image, I especially like the ethereal glow cast down by the slits in the cloud cover. I'd say the buildings themselves are a bit lacking in detail and blocky, but the atmosphere and shading makes up for it by drawing your attention to the center and away from the skyscrapers themselves.
