Vegetative State by LongHomeFox Vegetative State by LongHomeFox
I wanted to do something that would hopefully be different than the run-of-the-mill, post-apocalyptic scenario. I hope you enjoy it.

Thanks for looking!

Made with Gimp 2.6. and some walnuts.:)
All stock, aside from the house photo, is from my own work and can be seen here: [link]

I've logged a lot of hours in Hyrule. These were originally intended to be just that, with a peanut Link, but this contest came along the same time the green hat wasn't working out so well. :XD:

I think people just sometimes have a hard time seeing things outside of their own perspective. No biggie, I'm happy.:)

This one puts a smile on my face, makes me think of the Little Shop of Horrors plant. Clever and cute work (great imagery with the skeleton and the flowers growing over it) :thumbsup:

For some reason I haven't noticed this one before it made it to the semi-finalists. Really great one, I absolutely love the walnut heads, haha!

Thanks, I barely got it in just a few minutes before the deadline. I was a little shocked that I made the cut, honestly. There were a few that didn't that surprised me.
I noticed your work some time ago. I think we are in some common groups. Cool stuff!

Yes, I also think that there were some outstanding ones that didn't make it to the semi-finalists, while some of the cosen images aren't that great.

Ha! I always assume they're referring to mine when they say, "some don't belong up there" on the semi-finalists article.

This is what happens when people can't be bothered maintaining their gardens :lol: Definitely unique among the smoke and fire of other apocalypse scenes. I can imagine this being beyond that point when everything clears up again and a new world order emerges :D

I'm a terrible gardener.:lol:
It would have been so much easier to go darker, easier to manipulate, but I wanted the air to look cleaner. I imagined food shortages with Earth's rising population and a misstep-solution of genetically enhancing crops. There just wasn't enough Round-Up, I guess...hard to believe.
