The Showdown After the Countdown by priteeboy The Showdown After the Countdown by priteeboy
And it just had to be right before the weekend...Typical :grump:

Anyway, if you are sitting there and viewing this then that means either you are still alive or Heaven isn't as exciting as you hoped (either that or Hell managed to live up to expectations :devilish:).

But at least it also means the past few days of my life weren't wasted either. Since to get this done on time it was really just work and do this. I had been planning on making a special submission for this date since over a year ago yet somehow I still managed to leave it to the last minute, though I wasn't expecting to be as busy as I am now. Thankfully I was ale to save a lot of time on the city by using some old building models I really should re-do by now, but with so many together in a dark setting they worked surprisingly well. I did also use some "real" ones though from some photo's I took a few years back too...I knew someday I'd need them, even if that someday was the last day =p

I was born in the mid 70's and grew up in the 80's. Thanks to the cold war and tv movies like The Day After I've been obsessed with nuclear war for some time now. It frightens me but I find images like this strangely alluring. This is an impressive piece. So beautiful yet so deadly, as the old cliche goes.

I feel a similar way. Mushroom clouds are impressive sights... in pictures anyway, but I sure hope I never have to see one in real life ;)

Yeah I definitely agree. I think it's crazy that at one point you could arrange to have a honeymoon suite in Vegas that allowed you to witness testing. x.x

Beautiful picture, wrong category. This belongs under "What we wish was Sci-fi".

Tsar Bomb Test - the most destructive weapon mankind has ever made. Imagine if they wanted to destroy more than a lifeless desert. Not sci-fi. Remember that.

Hmm, well while atomic bombs stopped being sci-fi decades ago. this one was intended to be exceptionally large, sort of beyond the level of present-day bombs. This explosion here is still just in its first few seconds ;)

Let's just pray we NEVER have to ACTUALLY see this happen in our lifetimes.
Not that this artwork isn't amazing (it is!) It just triggers morbid thoughts on my part. xD
Nice job!

I did a piece similar in nature to this one, check it out if you have the time. Anyway, good work and I am glad we're still alive.

Well it's a bit of different things, some 3D art, some photo-manipulation and some painting, making it semi-Godlike in that case :laughing:
