Excidium
The end of a beautiful day

So what? What if everything is fine or even nearly perfect and then the worst case happens. How to react? Just accept it or try to fight against it?

And no... everything is fine (at least for me. just a bit busy but who isn't) It's just a question I'm asking myself from time to time. I had a lot of dreams in which the world ends (my world). And my brain explores different ways of handling the situation. Sometimes I just gave up. Sometimes I tried to reach the persons I love before the end. Sometimes I just enjoyed the last days of my life and they were beautiful.... peaceful and warm. And sometimes I experienced the feeling of dying. The heaviest dream I can remember was the one where a nuclear bomb detonates above my hometown. I was feeling the fire burning my skin. I don't know how it feels if your skin is burning because I never experienced it in reality. But if it's like in my dream, I never never never want to die this way.

Some deeper thoughts this time, I'm sorry for bothering you. But that's what art is for, isn't it? Expressing feelings.

I hope I'm not the only one having such dreams... that would scare me :D

:bulletred: Back to the picture:
base is one of my panorama shots that can be seen here: [link]
Rest is Photoshop and done with my graphic tablet.

:bulletred: 12000x7500px original (caused by the panorama)
:bulletred: 1,5gb psd before merging :O (I should merge it earlier, I know... but that's the advantage of digital art... to work with layers)

Wow, this is awesome man! :+favlove:
I wonder how many time you spent by doing this masterpiece, I see you mixed some photos for city and photoshoping, but did you used 3D? the lights are pretty acurate.
That orininal size is indeed huge, I suppose if I print it in a resolution of 150dpi it would fit perfectly in my bedroom wall. :omg:
