This is going to be one heck of a journey, people. I'll start off by letting you guys know that I'm a complete amateur. I've never been to art school, and I'll only be using my knowledge from high school and some minor college art classes.
On to the topic at hand, though.
My apologies if you find the related material offensive. I would like to keep the topic away from arguments about religion and more of a post full of friendly constructive criticism.
This is a story that I recently took up, and I have already started the process of making it a graphic novel, but I'm going to create a fresh perspective on it in order to actually be invested in this competition, and not just post stuff that I've already made. I want it to be unique to itself for the entry alone, not a previous work. I would render my entry useless, and dull, at that.
They always said the world would end in fire. But the world ended the minute God disappeared. And His children, of course. Before the second coming of Christ, this world was already in shambles. The Cold War turned from a war of words into a near-nuclear-apocalypse. The reasons why don't matter. I couldn't even tell you, because I don't even know them, myself. However, the fact that the world had fallen into chaos due to bickering and showing who's "ego" was bigger was reason alone for God to take up His disciples and bring them home. On November 13th, 1996, the world found out what life on Earth without God's presence felt like. With all of the Righteous gone, the world was left to rebuild itself through the eyes of sinners. Through our eyes.
It's been 146 years after The Wipe. They always said the world would end in fire, but they were wrong. The fire is what brought God's attention to us. He is the reason why the world is useless now. Without Him, what's the point in living? We're doomed to our own living Hell, never to step foot in the paradise that should be awaiting us had none of this happened. The Trinity has taken their own land and claimed it for their own, and what is left now are just ruins of the previous world. Nobody wanted it, so it was left to rot. So we've all decided to do something about it. Since we've been denied our Kingdom in Heaven, we've decided to make our own.
PLEASE STAY TUNED FOR ART.
I only posted this story to capture your attention, and hopefully it worked. Make sure to follow the post and check up daily for new artwork, as I'll be finding out what the heck I'm going to be making. I have a rough idea, but it has got to be something great. Man this is going to be tiring.
I'll be posting a sketch later tonight, so as of 4:08 PM I have nothing, just an idea. I'll post more later, though, and hopefully I will be done by the end of the week.
