Wow... I never expected to see my homeland Singapore featured, of all countries/cities that could be featured... I swear wild macaws can't be found anywhere here but I could be wrong, they may have escaped from the Bird Park. XD

The Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort and Casino is still standing?! It always looked like two buildings so flaccid they started leaning against each other with a boat piled on top of them. And OH NOES THE MERLION PARK IS BUSTED. Hell no.

You know, for some reason, destroyed or not I think the CBD looks good either way... Is that a good sign at all? D:

Oh god not the Taipei 101! I was there last year and the view was fantastic. Not THAT building! DX

Why? It's artist's own choice which ones to draw, really, and definitely not a rule to include one city or another, no matter what. Isn't that what creativity is about - expressing your passion, showing your vision about something? While you might feel like London should've been among these apocalyptic ruins, what about the author of paintings? Maybe London is not that important in his personal view at all. He deserves his own opinion and freedom in art, don't you think?

DonguriArt Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Well yea. But is that a reason to get angry at artist for not drawing it? It's their choice not yours to make. I mean... Let's see. I like Ventspils, for example. I am guessing that you don't know where that town even is. (You might but this is for the sake of example so let's presume you don't) Should I get angry at you now just because of that...? ^^ ; What I am saying it - just enjoy the artwork. It's great the way it is, really. ^^ If you have other ideas, you can always take this as inspiration and create something of your own. That'd actually be fantastic - artwork(-s) fueling creation of more art. Creative environments are great for these things. ...Or simple enjoying too, of course :D

Because he's got a thing against London and doesn't like it was spared the apocalypse, of course. Why else?

For all I know could be so, could not - doesn't really matter in this case, if we look at it logically. The works are his and it's his choice which cities to portray in these series. He doesn't need to meet everyone's expectations (and it's impossible to please anyone even if one wanted to). If it bothers you that much, though - go and draw post-apocalyptic London yourself. Nobody's holding you back, you know.

... dude... Do I look like I am bothered with any of it? At all? ^^; I'm just giving you a nudge and telling you not to treat this matter seriously. It's not worth it. There are better things to get agitated about than someone having an inconsequential opinion, with no power (or even apparent will) to enforce it. So the guy feels disappointed with the artist? Oh holy crap. That's their sole right, and you can't do anything more about it than they can do about London not being the part of the series. Why waste your breath? :lmao:

Didn't know that expressing my thoughts = getting agitated. xD You sure prefer a simplified version of viewing things like this, it seems. I didn't comment to start a war or anything. Chill. I add my 2 cents of thoughts (because I somehow happen to have those too, funny, right?). Does that comment bother you personally somehow? Well, you replied so I guess you are not completely indifferent for one reason or another. So I'll just return your own advice - don't take it too seriously. *shrugs*

*JonasDeRo does astounding work. The lighting is brilliant, the well-placed strokes expose the details seemingly as though effortless; he makes it look easy... He's like Thomas Kincade with a set of balls. Yeah.

I kinda agreed from that. 

Luzon got hit by typhoons.
Visayas got hit by earthquakes.
Mindanao got hit with war.
