Scars of a past generation by Shue13 Scars of a past generation by Shue13
New piece from my personal project T-13S called "Scars Of A Past Generation"
Back story: "Nature took back what the numerous wars stole for decades, peace and relief. The scars from a past generation, from fierce battles are still visible just like this wrecked ship but it is part of a whole ecosystem."

A very strong piece.
Even though there is enough of post-apocalyptic art, this one surely stands out.
The scenery is great, the composition does not tire the eyes. There is a balance between details on the wrecked ship and the blur of the mountains and skies above.
What catches my attention though, is the mist. It is a direct opposite of the often used "world on fire" post-apocalyptic concept. Here it serves the same purpose as does dust on the drawings of old furniture: shows us that the place was in this state for a long time, that the whole enviroment of the ship is motionless.
The enviroment itself is quite a something. The mountains look like they are tilted because of long severe winds, but at the same time they could be frozen splashes of rock from some meteor rain.
I may be overthinking this, but there is just something about how all of the crags follow the same angle. It may hint the viewer that some cataclysm took place way before the ship wrecked, and now the history repeats itself.
And yet there is a waterfall and bushy woods. The place you portrayed is something that could be a true paradise, if the weather was right.
This is not something I would make into a wallpaper on my computer`s desktop. It bothers me and makes me feel uneasy. And yet I feel weirdly at peace at the same time, due to the color scheme perhaps, or because the place feels like whatever was the damage, it is gone now. And all that`s left is a scar.

I am sorry if my English is far from perfect or if my judgements are not very professional. I just liked the picture and felt like I have something to say about it.
What do you think?

Great! It somehow reminds me of Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome.

The winning elements here are the clouds and the mountains - mate, I can hear the moisture and feel the cold.

Excellent work here sir, the details are sublime.

Ship's AOK but the backdrop is better - superb work sir, superb :)

Very nice and peaceful. The diagonally towering peaks are reminiscent of huge cannons. Is the planet Earth or an alien world?
