Radioactive Future by shadothezombie Radioactive Future by shadothezombie
I guess the Mayans were wrong... :)

Sorry for this dark piece of art on these lovely holidays, but I guess now is the time that I found myself able to finish it. Plus we have to keep the balance with all the positive and cheerful greetings on DA! ;) Just kidding...

Stocks used:

Corn Field
Power Plant Chimneys
Abandoned Truck
Moon
Radioactive Label
Gas Mask
Bag

Smoke was painted with cloud brushes and the man behind the gas mask is me, because I couldn't find the pose that I wanted. (Thanks to my roommate for taking the shot)

Wow guys! Thank you so much for the Daily Deviation! It really means a lot to get this recognition from the Deviantart community! I had no idea that this piece will get any attention. I can only promise that my future works will be better. :)

I may only say.
I'm waking up to ash and dust
I wipe my brow and I sweat my rust
I'm breathing in the chemicals

I'm breaking in, shaping up, then checking out on the prison bus
This is it, the apocalypse
Whoa

I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my systems blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive

I raise my flags, don my clothes
It's a revolution, I suppose
We're painted red to fit right in
Whoa

I'm breaking in, shaping up, then checking out on the prison bus
This is it, the apocalypse
Whoa

I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my systems blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive

All systems go, the sun hasn't died
Deep in my bones, straight from inside

I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my systems blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive

Not really if we perfect fusion, clean, bountiful, cheap energy.
Much better than the likes of the energy production of greenpeace and friends of the earth, their methods would actually do more damage in the long run

Intriguing image :) Hope it's not how the future's like.

Btw what's up with the first sentence there? "the Mayans were wrong" ? :-P Wrong about what? Hope you're not serious about that one. The Mayans never said a thing about the end of the world or doomsday if that's what you're refering to..
Funny how everyone think so because every media writes about this one crazy dude's interpretation of their calendar... instead of actually trying to gain some real info about the Mayan culture and their calendar system. Hah.. ^^;

Haha, Phew.. ^^; Ok, sorry man, I just get so fed up in the end.. seeing so much fuzz about it. I guess the Mayans are as well. Anyway.. I shall calm down now..

Cheers for gas masks and the Mayans :P

the power plant looks like Didcot A and B coal plants (AKA the cloud factories) in Oxfordshire, UK.

From the chimneys shown only comes harmless water vapor. You should look after the smaller chimneys.
