Imposing even in decay, the ruins of an ancient city evoke the grandeur of an age that has been forever lost.

... but even the chance to commit the same mistakes of the past no more.

Love the perspective of this one as well as the texture.
I think you did well to put a character in the scene, not only for scale but to give an idea the state humanity itself is in after said decay.
I really like his weapon. Ha ha.
Reminds me of Darkantic's video [link] where he says "we will either be viewed as primitive [in the future], or as gods."

I wish I had an ounce of your talent. As all the rest it takes my breath away.

Soaring heights of silver serve only to hide an underbelly of despair. There is no grandeur here, only a fašade. A lie told to quiet the brave, dishearten the courageous and discredit all who scream of oppression. This world is nothing to be proud of. Idols of fools and fools of kings! We march, lead by jesters and rapists, defilers and debasers merrily ,straight into hell. When this world falls it will be a proud day in heaven, and hell will feast for 40 days and 40 nights on the souls of all those who dared to call this world illustrious!

When the darkness swallows the Earth because the many listened to the whore rather than their mother, I will laugh as I burn, a madness born of kindness, a hatred born of love, a doctor born of death. I will laugh when you burn and I will burn when you cry.

The world should not be missed, it should be a scaretale, a nightmare from which you awaken gladly. This world will burn and I will be watching, when the truth of the human race rises from the ashes.

All that remains of the "Human empire"

(your picture inspired me, I'm sorry xD)
the end for some is the beginning for others
