First things first: I'm a fan of the pen sketches you typically do, but I'm glad to see you trying something different. Stepping out of one's artistic "comfort zone" can be challenging and risky, but you took the plunge. Impact, for that reason, gets a 5. Vision gets a 5 too, because this isn't the kind of art we typically see from you, and it looks rather a lot like what it should: a ruined cathedral.
That being said, originality tallies in at only a four. This isn't the first or last (by far) post- apocalyptic cathedral on DA. If it had been, you'd get a 5. For you, this is original, so I'll give you a four. (it would have been a 3.5 or so, had this been not the first post apocalyptic cathedral you made)

Your technique here is pretty good. I know I couldn't (or wouldn't have the patience to) do that kind of stuff with photoshop or other photo editing software. My one gripe with it lay in the fact that what parts of the cathedral aren't completely ruined appear to be perfectly pristine. There should be some blending of the two. (bleedover, if you will. All those chairs just sitting happy as you please under an open sky/collapsed roof? not likely.)
The roof also looks a little too "cut," if that makes any sense. (not a single detail of the outside roof either, but that bit is beyond your control in the case of a photomanip, so you didn't lose points for that reason, just for the other.)
What do you think?

Would you also agree that the idea of individuals being self-sufficient with limited resources in a modern setting also contributes to the awesomeness that is the apocalypse scenario?

Sweetness. Make sure you play it twice to get both endings. Also, keep an eye out for Metro: Last Light later this year.

It's pretty good, you get a crossbow and that's fun. Plus a bow that can block out the sun and a second Dragon summon. I'm pretty sure I'd buy it again.

You also get a badass new Vampire type with its own personal Skill tree, and a skill tree for werewolf.
And then there's the part where you get to both see ancient Falmer that aren't poisoned, and you can get a mostly complete set of Falmer Armor. There's just too much cool stuff to even list, man. You just gotta buy it and see it all for yourself sometime
Do you Rim on 360, PS3, or PC?
