Apocalypse by JoJoesArt Apocalypse by JoJoesArt
Unfold your hidden wings,
Search for a better place,
It's the end of all pain,
It's the day of APOCALYPSE.


PS CS 4, about 10 hours

It is the end of the world, when all suppressed and martyred beings will leave this planet on search for another, better place to live. We polluted the essence of life, water, for so many hundreds of years, in the end the fishes will leave earth while we are doomed to stay and watch the sun set the really last time.

We still have the chance to rescue this world, which served us for such a long time....


My first pic after a long time being inactive.. :) I hope you like it! :heart: Favs and comments are - as always - highly appreciated! :D :hug:

This is an amazing work. When I first saw it, it brought a wow to my mouth! It's so beautiful, I kept on staring at it for 15 minutes!


It's an amazing work, the vision is just perfect, showing what might happen in the future. But, there's a downside to it, I'm afraid. Why fishes? It could be birds, or canines or any other creature. But why of all of them fishes? Anyways, beautiful and clear vision. 4 stars!


What stunned me most was how you created such an original thing. While most other 'the-end-of-the-world' and apocalypse art just shows pure destruction and all the lives being taken, this shows a few lives being saved. I love it for that. 5 stars to this amazing piece!


I could say the technique's perfect. I could say it. But, the left side of the bottom looks slightly too dark. I'm not exactly sure, but that's what I think. Other than that, all of it looks okay. 4.5 stars!


As for impact, I'd say it's pretty good, as this is likely the first time an apocalypse has been depicted this way, surprising most people, I suppose. So, 5 stars!

All in all, it's a beautiful piece. Vibrant colors, and beautiful scenery. So, great work, keep it up, and surprise us even more! :)

6 out of 6 deviants thought this was fair.

This is the reason why I do these things, for art like this! Now just because you're in Germany doesn't mean I'm finna go easy on you! So let's get to it!
The water look great, along with the lighting as well as the splash coming from the flow of the water. This picture blew my mind out of the park! I'm still a little confused about the moon (or planet, whatever you made it out to be) is it an eclipse or just a mirage? I'm just asking, because whatever it is, it looks absolutely look incredible. And to top it the fish look as if they're praying o the middle fish. I don't know, but I do know one thing. You did an amazing job, and I would love to see more!

In the madcap "HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE" cycle, the dolphins space-migrate just before The End. The Vogons then come and atomize the earth and two survivors,along with Marvin the Paranoid Android and the Infinite Improbability Drive.

The dolphins transmit a final message as they leave:

Love this image, and it makes me think of the movie me it's kind of like a combination of the fish-part from the Nutcracker Suite, and the Rite of Spring sequence....anyhow, beautiful!

The contrast of warm and cool colors is beautiful! The green looks lovely against the orange, and the black at the bottom balances everything perfectly with its neutrality. This is very beautiful and well executed.

This is amazing and beautiful, even with the sad theme. There are people to this day that don't see that nature can also be fragile. I like the small amount of green you have in this.
