Lone Survivor Advanced Photomanipulation by CryoGfx Lone Survivor Advanced Photomanipulation by CryoGfx
10 long hours and 500+ layers later, It's finally here! This is by far the most time and effort I have put into any piece yet ;) 
My crown jewel of photomanipulations, I got inspired by some of the "destroyed-city" type manips, and I decided to do my take on it.
Full sized wallpaper (2337x1315px) is avaliable for free download, I certainly reccomend viewing this in as high a resolution as possible for maximum visuals. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~
Credits: I dove years back into the resource folder for this one, using well over 50 different individual resources, many of which are my own, to complete this piece. So I'm sure you can understand if I am unable to credit each and every resource-creator that I borrowed from, what follows is my best possible attempt to give credit where credit is due:

Rubble pile: fav.me/d6ekuzn
Water splash brushes: fav.me/d4henl0
Various textures came from the following resource packs: fav.me/d74amem
Other render by: beastbomb.deviantart.com/

I fear I left some out, if you think I am using one of your resources here and not crediting you by all means send me a note and I will get you your credit asap :)
~~~~~~~~~~

As Im sure you can see, I put a lot of time into this baby, perfecting every shadow, every angle. Please show your support for my effort by tossing me a fav and a comment!! Also check out my profile for more awesome photomanipulations Love 

This is my own work, it is not intended to be used as a stock. Feel free to use this as your desktop wallpaper, but please toss me a fav and comment if you do! This work may not be distributed without my express consent.

how do you handle 500 layers...if you don’t mind me asking, how many megabytes or GB’s was the final image before resizing it for DA...great work by the way...regards....David

I had a "fantasy photomanipulation" as a final project, and I actually came across this on my search for inspiration. I have to say I am impressed and in love with piece. The amount of work put into it is obvious. You did a great job!

This is supremely encouraging, Its uplifting that you appreciate this :happybounce: Thanks so much!

Randomly went on DA again after a while and looked around at some of my friends work.
And stumbled upon this.
Jesus christ Cryo, you outdid yourself on this one!
New desktop picture is found! :)

I might be getting back on Sig-Labs soon again and the GFX world ^^

Hi there, I have made a trailer music titled "We Are Survivors", I know it's not exactly the same (for this photo is about a lone survivor) but I just couldn't find any other works that fits the mood and tone of it. May I use this photo as the cover art for the music track? I am uploading the song on youtube (with audio watermark) and I would like to use it as the image for the clip. I will put your credit and details in the youtube description. Please let me know if you are keen! Thanks :)

here's the track: audiojungle.net/item/we-are-su…
