Revelation by BLPH Revelation by BLPH
Corruption had destroyed society. With its decay, darkness rose among the people. Long before, fate had already determined that there will come a day when this corruption will end. Somebody will appear to restore righteousness, honor, and justice.
However, the one sent will bring even larger misanthropy over the people. He will exterminate those who caused this corruption in first place. After this, the era of paradise-like conditions will begin.



I spent the Christmas-days at my grandparents' house. Pretty awesome days; cake, meat, candies, and even Mountain Dew. Mountain Dew is full of win.

I'm really happy about the outcome of this image, seeing that it is purely painted. Finally a citiscape I'm really happy with. Also, I had this theme in my head for quite a while already, so I'm glad that I got this one done :)

Very likely that this is the last image from me this year. See it as my Happy New Year-painting. Also be nice and make up some nice new-year-plans or the Death Angel will get you!


Technical details:
- size: 3000x4900 pixels @ 240dpi
- time: couple days
- Photoshop, Wacom Intuos 3



Merry (belated) Christmas and a Happy New Year!

stunning! i love the contrasting colors! and the angel, he really communicates a dread feeling, it leaves me wanting to know more
I'm very curious, what do you believe? This appears to be religious, and I'm curious as to what you were trying to say

Well, the fact that it seems religious is because I loosely adapted a theme from the Book of Revelation. Not only the title but themes like purging and the like :)

have you heard of the book called "The Great Controversy" ?
well, this picture reminds me of it, it talks about the bible, and the book of revelation, saying that there will be a one-world false religion, in which the vast majority of people, will persecute and kill the few who refuse to worship the way they want. if you want, i think you can listen to one of the chapters here: [link]

anyways, i think this piece is really interesting, it makes people wonder.

Pretty neat.
Though I wish the buildings had a little more detail, looked a touch more realistic.
I don't know much of Digital Art but maybe you could have worked a photography of real desolate buildings into it?

Hmm, yes, that would have been an option. However, I wanted to purely paint this image; otherwise, a stock picture would have surely been added ;)
