Hey, guys, long time no art. I've been prowling around the site for a few weeks, but haven't been able to post nary anything because of school and personal reasons. I've been kind of reluctant about posting this, just because I've grown to hate it with the endless hours I've worked on it. It is one of the pieces going on to the VASE State Competition in Houston; I may post the other soon, if I gather the time and motivation.

This piece was something totally different and interesting to work on... it started in the downloadable program Alchemy as a flurry of shapes, but ended up morphing into some sort of reality reminiscent of the infamous Rabbit Hole. I get tired of the cliché "Alice in Wonderland" pictures, though, so I ended up taking a more post-apocalyptic spin, making a composition that represents my view of fallout shelters.

Then again, I would really like you, the viewer, to decide for yourself what a fallout shelter is: a beautiful escape from the unavoidable Rapture, or a claustrophobic nightmare that bastardizes the broken home.

Excuse me for the formal language, I've been writing an essay, and just now took a break to post this. :) I'm still in Student mode.

Thanks for looking, and I appreciate your feedback!

20 hours off and on?
Welcome to Rapture - Garry Schyman.

While this was initially not while I was looking for... I must say it is an unappreciated masterpiece! One man could some up my entire experience in finding this piece, "It was a happy accident."

Clearly if Mr. Dali was still walking the Earth, This would be another piece of his!

Trippy, to say the least. He must be in Vault 106. Someone better fix the gas leak in there. Kinda reminds me of Genndy Tartakovsky's stuff, the creator of Samurai Jack.

This would have to be one of my favourite pieces of arkwork I've seen so far, I just can't stop staring at it. It's so good. I don't even know what to type about it.
