I prefer the iterations where humanity disappears and the natural world resumes its course. Humans are a virus...

Love the work and vision as well!

May come sooner than we expect: covid-19.

Then where will be the sci-fi stories set countless aeons in the future ?

Even after the apocalypse, Toronto would look the same as now.

How exactly does this apocalypse come about: if it was nuclear, than all that would be where these cities are is a barren wasteland. And if it was some kind of epidemic, than how do you have the Burj Khalifa taken over by trees. IT'S DESERT! Plants wouldn't grow without human intervention.

I kinda like the Destruction part and the all of the chaos around but really here on Earth the ( Human world ) not look so Awesome -.-
This looks like the End of the World.. but looking in the real events around the globe
the Destruction is only the Beginning of Apocalypse.
Btw i really enjoy the art style is Stunning.

These (the above pictures in this journal) are the kind of pictures that force you, in a sense, to think: Who's not to say that the apocalypse may occur within our lifetime?

If London was here it'd still have British people queuing for stuff.

The only good thing about the apocalypse is all the bird and plant life growth.

With all the nuclear failures and toxic runoff from a lack of maintenance on sewage pipes and toxic storage facilities, and trash being scattered by all kinds of currents and winds, no humans would be even worse at this point.
But that Moscow picture though. :)
