Human's Bequest by ErikShoemaker Human's Bequest by ErikShoemaker
Surviving Races are condemned to suffer from human's deeds. Nuclear explosions cause unnatural mutations.

I made this for SlashTHREE's new art-release "The 30th Century", and it was chosen as featured submission. =] Check out the pack here: [link]

I really enjor how you portrayed this future. Its dark and mesmerising. The mutations are really original, and add a lot of depth to the piece. It gives you the feeling that the future is ruled by animals, yet there are lasting affects from humans and their hopeless trials. It really shows you that in the end the warring did not help any side, and hurt all. Not only deos give you that mysterious intriging look of the future but it also gives you a kind of ghostly feeling. The lighting draws your eyes to the horse and the exlosion in the background, and the grave cross shows you that humans are gone.
What do you think?

Fascinating! Is this part of a series?

Just checked out the link:

"The slashTHREE collective visualised what they thought the future would look like in its eighth exhibition, 30th Century. The theme gave the artists an opportunity to use their imaginations, and they did this on a massive scale, not only showing what the world might look like a thousand years from now, but the degree of change they foresaw in those thousand years. A myriad of styles were used to accomplish the task at hand for this exhibition, but none did it better than Polish mastermind Jedrzej Spychala, who churned out six unbelievably stunning, thought-provoking submissions that provided an amazing look into his idea of the future."

hey! It's not exactly part of a series, but it is part of a themed online exhibition published by the slashthree collective. These online exhibitions all deal with a certain theme and are released every three to four months. By visiting the linked website you can check out other images created for this "future"-theme or any other recently published exhibitions.

Thanks for the comment btw! :)

Very nice pic, if a little creepy!

Quick question, how did you make different resolutions downloadable as a RAR?
