The Sky opens by ANTIFAN-REAL The Sky opens by ANTIFAN-REAL
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.

I used some shots of New York as ref etc.

Painted in CS3
Intous 3 Tablet
Original Res 8k wide
About 15 hours painting time.

I hope you like it!

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.

I like this a lot.  I think the color scheme really likes.  It's a great tone piece.

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.

I would watch this as a movie.

I really like the lighting and detail, and the craters and such make me want to find out what happened. The usual "dystopic future" setting doesn't often have so much nature in it, which makes this even more interesting-- I really like the concept.
