Whoa reminds me of J.G. Ballard's The Drought novel

I don't think I have heard of that book, is it a good read?

The Drought published in 1964 was part of J.G. Ballard's post apocalyptic theme he did from 1962 till 1966. The Drought was good but one thing you have to understand with J.G. Ballard is his characters become obsessed with the world around so not all the stories are straight forward.

My favourite of his was The Drowned World 1962. Here a link to his stories you might like a few of them.

Difficult question. Let's say the positive side is I spit those drawings out like I haven't in what, a year? Though that will slow down soon as my holiday is over too XD Browsed your gallery and some of your drawings, especially the scenerys are badass! Wich tablet do you use if I may ask?

cheers mate, its the wacom Intros 3 tablet with the A5 screen pad, its old now but it really was a fantastic purchase, I've loved the opportunity it has allowed me to diversify my work. Looking forward to see what you are working on nowadays

This is how I picture the world in David Gemmel's Bloodstone series. I love post-apocalyptic themes. Great image, mate.

Great work :)
But I think that oil rig "legs" are not capable of supporting whole mass of rig. It would collapse as soon as buoyancy stops supporting it (which means as soon as water level drops).

Thanks, yes your right, was just using a bit of artistic license with the rig, I thought seeing it like that would prove unsettling for the viewer because we would never expect to see them like that

Well, that's right. This sway it has more impact.
I'm sometimes being smartass when it comes to technology and science and stuff...
I'm glad that it was conscious decision.

hey, no problems with accuracy in Science and technology, I like things to be believable you know? say in a film you could see something realistically happening or been invented.

I'm one of those people who go WTF? It's not right that pistol doesn't have that much ammo in it/that ship would broke apart/that's not how you fly in space/etc...
Maybe that's why I often watch sci-fi movies alone...
