When the Flood Came by BLPH When the Flood Came by BLPH
"Nobody has this expected to happen. The earthquake's severity as well as the ensueing flood. I have lost everything, my friends, my family, anything I have ever possessed. The only thing left is my life. When we heard about the tsunami, we ran. We ran for our lifes, and some didn't make it.
I ended up here, watching the full impact. Nothing will ever be the same again."

This is a collaboration between =CommanderEVE and me. Eve provided me with 3D-references of the person and the platform and I painted them! The rest is drawn from scratch. Hope you like it! Favs are greatly appreciated :)

Also, I want to categorically rant at this point. I know, the images depicting Japan's misery are currently in abundance right now, but I want to make something clear: I feel for the people, not the country. Yes, Japan is the origin of manga/anime/pokemon/naruto/whatever. So? This is just a trend, nothing worth mourning about (there are millions of people drawing manga that live outside of Japan). You cannot kill a trend; those will always live on. If you have a problem with that: bad for you. I'm just getting sick of those crying over man-made stuff when there is actual life endangered. And please, if I ever hear another pearl-harbor-reference, I'm gonna shoot the respective person.

Basically, some idiots were saying crap along the lines of "That's what Japan gets for bombing Pearl Harbor" and that they "deserved it" etc...

Wow, that's amazing. And I agree; smoothen out the background to give it a little more depth. Otherwise, it's quite breathtaking :)
