I'm almost satisfied, I have put so much time and dedication in this art work. I really knew what I wanted and to make it come to life feels really good. I usually end up doing something different than what I had originally envisioned, that's because of my artistic limitations, lack of knowledge and skill prevents me from doing what I truly want to make. This time though, I feel my studies on values during my spare time have paid off. I can't tell you how many hours this took me but it has been almost every single day. I am utilizing the amount of time given before the deadline as much as possible, therefor you will see me edit this work several times.
Global warming is an ongoing issue; it's really scary if you think about it... I live in a very hot place so this sparked my vision. I was literally sweating making this because the heat is unbearable. With continued use of burning coal, oil, and many other leading pollution's -the Earth's climate is changing. As heat rises and life dries out everything is at risk. Forest fires release large amounts of carbon dioxide which is more than gas and coal combined, this speeds up the global warming issue even more. A never ending story... In this artwork, global warming has taken every single life form thus the apocalypse!

The rest is taken with my Nikon D80 specially for this particular work. I needed specific light source, one of the reasons why I didn't raid stockproject this time. I also digitally painted a ridiculous amount of time on the plants, light, and the roof. Where I live we do not have shingles on our roof; it's just flat concrete... preventive for the hurricanes I suppose. The tablet reward for the winner sparked my interest very much, it would look dandy on my old wooden desk. Still editing 9/23/12
This is a work in progress, got loads of other details to add.
