Apocalyptic Panera -Imagined by Zirngibl Apocalyptic Panera -Imagined by Zirngibl
Here is an eerie scene I saw strongly in my head when I first sat down. Something that seems both destructive and beautiful.

Based on the two Panera paintings, I made up my own "apocalyptic sunset" lighting for the scene. I like those surreal, permeating type glows in interiors. By the way, this was done for Painting 1 at TAD.

I'm not the only one that sits in cafes and thinks about how town would look after an apocalypse? Too damn cool

The shades of orange are really pretty in this piece. Gives off this very out-of-this-world shine. :la: The small details in the scene are a nice touch too. Great work~ :aww:

This is really beautiful! I love the colours and the lighting! I really like sunsets like this! We had it once while snowboarding. It felt strange but had been absolutely amazing! Your painting looks so peaceful and calm despite of the colours. That's really nice!^^

I love this! I don't know why, but I frequently walk into buildings or neighborhoods and wonder what it would look like if it was post apocalyptic. This very brilliantly captures the mood.

It feels peaceful to me, like its in an old country town and the sun is setting and any minute now someone is going to come in and ask for a cup of tea. This looks like it should be in an Panera restraunt, the way you look at it and it makes you think and feel peaceful. It's so beautiful

this is beautiful. At first, it seems nice, and calm with the warm glow of the sun. Then you notice that there's no people in there, whether sunset or sunrise, and after it hits you that it's a bit too bright for those, and then you realize that there is something very very wrong....

I love this piece. It shows peace during a disaster, and there's something haunting that there's no action during so. Great job!

I love this.
There's a feeling that I get when looking at this picture. . . Almost like I'm in there myself, enjoying the solitude. The composition and color is just perfect.

And also, it kind of reminds me of where Heather wakes up in Silent Hill 3. . . But I haven't played that game in forever so I could be way off. . . But yeah.

this is freaking awesome. its like, showing the end of the world not from a grand vantage point, but from a vantage point where the viewer is clearly caught way off-guard. If I knew the end of the world was coming, I wouldn't wait around for it in a Panera! very awesome and original :)

i guess i really like the composition and color pallet here. brush strokes seem nice and loose, yet the scene is still realized. i can see people sitting in this location looking out the window through the distance. Perhaps they are looking at an asteroid impacting. its their last coffee. ever.....

i know the feeling. if the iron isn't hot anymore its hard to go back. meaning that if the idea feels like its reached the peak of your interest in it already. i feel that way a-lot too. its a very enjoyable study.

What happens to me soo much is that someone will give a great crit an on old piece, and then I never go back and fix it, and wonder if they think I've insulted them by not actually taking their advice. haha
