"To our great surprise, the enemy has advanced faster and stronger than we expected. City upon city is being lost in the battle. The more we take out, the more come. We kill one and ten new crawl out of cracks, holes, and corners. Thousands of civilians, women, children, were brutally slaughtered. Their superiority is appaling!
So far, nothing has been found that could stop their advances. We are running out of time."
Man, I'm so glad that I managed to finish this painting. This piece took me by far longer than any other project. I spent pretty much my entire free time during my vacations on it, so working-time should be something between 60 and 90 hours dooming with Photoshop's default hard round brush. Conclusion: my will to destroy things seems to be larger than my laziness. lol.
Basic concept behind it: some super-high-developed mutated spiders have decided that it's much more enjoyable to rule humanity than to be ruled by humanity, so they start invading cities and tape down every resistant force to the ground where they can slowly rot away by themselves.
At this point, I'd especially like to thank `j4m3sb0nd
with his seemingly neverending stream of ideas. He was definitely a great help!
