Only the birds will survive...


From the car window I see birds fleeing a forest fire. The sun setting, running away like a god unwilling to help his kin. Indifferent to the survival of his wildlife, the sleeping lord descends. The fire intensifies just as the problems we face persist day by day. The sight unsettling but beautiful, only the birds will survive the tragedy.

This is one of my favorites of yours, so much so, I got a new phone today... And wam-bam-boom, it's my wallpaper.

I just really like the color-scheme and the minimalist look to it all. Just really cool vibes all around.

Yeah, the stuff in your comments went over my head, but there's a certain derivative power that comes from this piece that I can't deny. It is now the background on my work desktop. Thank you for your art. I can't stop staring at it.

Hmmm,/ Simple..
GooD for Backgrounds, Cover or Display..

For being pixel art of something that looks so simple, it is actually a bit more than that. I like it. But I do admit, there could have been something more done to the bottom-most third (the forest), as it is just a lot of black pixels, and the upper-most third (the sky) is quite dull, with no real show of the sun, moon, stars, or distinguishable clouds.

Thank you!
