In Sight of Apocalypse by arcipello In Sight of Apocalypse by arcipello
its been a while since i submitted anything substantional....and it feels good to do so once again:) (Smile)

This image was inspired by a dream i had a week ago, the image shows the clearest thing i remember.
A bright light filled the sky and smoke swept through the city...i then had a close up of a guy, not sure if it was supposed to be me or not but i watched in the reflection of his goggles as the figures grew and disintergrated, then suddenly everything started to break apart and slowly float away in the wind.


not entirely sure what is means but ive got my own thoughts on that.

anyway i hope you like it:) (Smile)

I do an online digital magazine called Surreal Grotesque. We are always looking to feature cool art, images, fiction and models. I think your stuff would go great in the December, Apocalypse Issue. Let me know if you are interested. You can email me at if you wanted to submit anything in particular or I could choose from your deviantart and let you know. All credit would go to you and would remain your property, I would just be using the photos to show other people your work. I also have a group here on deviantart: [link] Thanks!

Reminds me of Metro 2033, as the main character struggles to keep his mental and physical integrity, he is assaulted by humanoid ghouls

amazing artwork, but its even more intresting when you learn a little bit more about an image!

For those who dont understand what im talking about, i was watching a video review by Ashens of the Gameking system, and he came across as game called Ares, and mentioned that the artwork on the front was infact stolen from deviantart!

after a little google search i came across the library of the gameking's games: [link] , and low and behold, there, the 3rd game down, was indeed the game, as well as a link to this very page!

i dunno if id be chuffed or down right pissed at such a thing happening if it was my art, though the thought of having my art taken above all others to be the art for the front of a game (no matter how poor the quality) to be a little... i dunno, 'hah im awesome' feel to it.

for those intrested in the review itself, heres the link ^^ [link] (image at 9:28) enjoy!

This is an amazing work of art. And to think, that you created it from an image from your dream?! It reminds me & my mother of Salvador Dali. She loves that artist and is in love with this piece. You definitely have talent.

Sorry about the Game King thing, dude. This kicks ass, I have to say. I also have to say, "Some day in 21st century, the earth was attached by exotic." Anyway, I have to agree with what other dudes said, this does look very Fallout-y.

You can almost feel the sadness in his eyes... Not really sure if it is because of the end of mankind or is it because of how he lived his life... I wonder if your planning to gives us a background of what happened... That should be interesting...

This took my breath away. I wish I could be half the artist you are when I get older.

Sad thing is theres a video game that stole your artwork and used it as the cover

Your creation process is similar to Salvidor Dali's. He would rig a contraption to cause teacups or whatever to crash when he went to sleep - then paint what he was dreaming at that moment.

I really enjoy your paintings. I hope you continue on this path.
lmarineo Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2010
You must be proud to have the game king game "ares" still your art.

any way, awesome picture!!!
