All done in Photoshop, painted almost entirely with some reference stuff peeking through. This image is a personal project, so doesn't belong to anyone else, i.e. a client. To buy the full license to this image would cost £60 ($100).
Not as tight as my usual stuff but I didn't want to get bogged down with too much fuss this time round. Initially I was going to create an alien invasion image and be super-original. Then I changed my mind and did something more futuristically realistic for a change.
The following rant was stimulated by this recent event in London www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dtkp_n…
where the 'murder' of a British soldier took place in London.
Rioting is naturally more frequent in the world today, as the elite plunder more and more wealth from the poor in our societies. Already we see the middle classes joining the ranks of the lower classes in retaliation against the controllers of the monetary system. One day I hope that all religions, all money, all cultures, all country borders and governments are wiped from the planet so that future generations can grow and enjoy life without having to get their kicks from buying endless pairs of new shoes or the latest mobile phone and living in fear of the imaginary 'terrorism' that our western governments fabricate and then turn against us.
I believe there is absolutely no point in clinging to our precious cultural histories as they are almost certainly based on the victory of killing, murdering and successful invasions of other countries. America and Britain are the ultimate culprits of course, leading the way with their pride and military dominance over the world, attempting to convert every other citizen of the world to become clones of our greedy, self-centred, angry and hateful western society and to hand over all their oil and resources to our fat cats who can further their own wealth whilst watching the rest of the unfortunate world die in misery and poverty.
Don't sign up to join the Police or the Army - the real enemies aren't living in the middle east, they live in London and Washington and they wear designer suits. Soldier are just trained killing machines who only get killed as a result of the very government that fooled them into signing up in the first place. There is no difference whether you kill muslims or you kill precious American and British civilians - it's all killing and murder, through and through. Killing does not make you a hero. It does not make you a man. Anyone can pull a trigger and kill fathers of families. Don't be fooled by patriotism - it's just another way to make you feel like you belong somewhere but your own culture will gladly take your home from you if you can't feed it the money it craves. You mean nothing to your culture, none of us do. We are products, designed to feed the monetary system and keep the rich elite ever more rich and elite.
P.S. I don't mean anything against British and Americans personally. I have many friends from both cultures. It's the 'system' I detest, as do a lot of my friends and other people. There's nothing worse than seeing creative people be controlled and sucked in to something so destructive and uncreative.
Sorry for the rant but I just couldn't resist!!!
