Waking up to apocalypse by eldeivi Waking up to apocalypse by eldeivi
WINNER OF THE THIRD PLACE / DARKSIDERS & DEVIANTART CONTEST-

Ok deviants, i have been totally devoted for about two weeks now for this thing and finally i have managed to finish it. ( just about time! hehehe ) it is my entry for the awesome and exciting Darksiders contest.

What is it about ? well, ive always had weird and creepy nightmares about the end of the world and i thought to develop something about those lines. what if you would wake up from a terrible nightmare to sudently discover that the end of the world has already began?
At first i thought of doing the usual destruction caused by meteors or nuclear nukes outside the window, but then i came up with the idea that adding the actual monsters and demons from the Darksiders game could be pretty cool.
So thats basically the main concept for my illustration of the end of days. A day were i wake up and find myself in the middle of the Apocalypse, sorrounded by chaos and horrible monsters.

Plus I find those particular demons BADASS!
Also the HellBook looks awesome. Also the fact that he has a poster of the horsemen is very clever.

Wonderful picture. The demons in such lively, fiery colours. Good expression of fear in the boys face.

The end of the world is something you can see relative from a different point of view. The theme is supportet by the lively fiery coulors and the ecpression of fear in the boys face. Wonderfully made picture.

AWSOME! IF YOU PRACTISE BHAKTI YOGA YOU WILL REALIZE THAT ACTUALLY EVERYBODY ARROUND YOU IS A DEMON!

I live in Deutschland. The word Deutschland was derived from the Sanskrit terms Deity Stan. Deitya Stan means "Land of Demons" IT IS THE TRUTH! YOU NEED TO CHANGE YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS TO SEE WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT! ;)

TRANSLATION

Among the Daitya demons I am the devoted Prahlāda; among subduers I am time; among the beasts I am the lion, and among birds I am Garuḍa, the feathered carrier of Viṣṇu.

PURPORT

Diti and Aditi are two sisters. The sons of Aditi are called Ādityas, and the sons of Diti are called Daityas. All the Ādityas are devotees of the Lord, and all the Daityas are atheistic. Although Prahlāda was born in the family of the Daityas, he was a great devotee from his childhood. Because of his devotional service and godly nature, he is considered to be a representative of Kṛṣṇa.

There are many subduing principles, but time wears down all things in the material universe and so represents Krishna. Of the many animals, the lion is the most powerful and ferocious, and of the million varieties of birds, Garuḍa, the bearer of Lord Vishnu, is the greatest.

i knew that something that would make the difference in the contest is humor. The theme was already dark enough to accentuate it with more darkness, so i took my chances with the funn part that could be taken from it.

I´m glad you like it. that reydelfenix!

I was going to put a lot more stuff in there you know? like more elements of the game on the bed and around the room but i thought about it twice and felt there were so much things and detail that it was enough.

thanks for your comment neko!

It's not that the monster wants to kill him, it just wants to find a good hiding place before he suffers a horrible painful death at the hands of WAAAAARR!!!

I havent thought about it that way, but now that you say it so i guess you are right! it seems that creature wants to get in to the room to hide and not to kill the sleeping guy. it just came into my mind what the creature could be yelling there, something like " hey you! let me in, things are going crazy out here!!!" HAHAHAHA.

Thanks for the comment man
