Post Apocalyptic Disneyland by AlexRuizArt Post Apocalyptic Disneyland by AlexRuizArt
**PRINTS AVAILABLE HERE!: fineartamerica.com/featured/po… **

I've always wanted to see the 'Happiest Place on Earth', destroyed;)
It was a blast making this image, I actually went to Disneyland to take reference photos for it and to make sure I was placing things correctly. Done in Photoshop in about three days.
I created this as part of a tutorial for Concepteez, an online digital magazine created by Concept World, a great group right here on deviantart! fav.me/d46c2fe

If you'd like to learn techniques like the ones used in creating this image, visit my download store. conceptmonsterstudios.blogspot…

**On a side note, I understand some people will get upset with this image( as some people have been so far). Let me first say though, I absolutely LOVE Disneyland! What I'm really trying to covey here is a contrast of ideas. I don't want this to happen in reality, but it COULD. Look where we live, floating on a rock in space and being shot at by other rocks! So let's hope and pray a meteor doesn't hit us, ad let's not take images like this too seriously;)

See the tutorial for this here!: tarrzan.deviantart.com/art/Pos…

Just going to throw it up that this picture is of Disney WORLD not land.... :/ you got the park wrong. Disney land is on the west coast of the US and Disney World is on the east coast. This has cinderella's castle which means this is the shot of Disney World....

It's still a good picture though. Interesting and creative But research is always nice.

Out of all that destruction, which practically turns Disney World into Hell on Earth, that statue of Walt and Mickey stands out the most I think that it's still standing compared to the rest of the place is just incredible to me. I'm not sure if this was your intent, but the message I'm getting from the statue is that as long as there's something or some one left to resist a disaster like this, there is always hope that things will get better, no matter how bad things get.

I love Disney and I'm not upset.I mean,how many times have we seen a post-apocalyptic Las Vegas in the movies?The closest Hollywood has come to something like this was that lame "Enchanted Kingdom By The Sea" in "Escape From L.A."
If you want to see more stuff like this,YouTube has this guy who does photo-montages of WDW like this.

I actually do have an apocalyptic idea for the origin of Andalasia (that's the magical land Giselle grew up in from "Enchanted").

Approximately 500 before Giselle's birth, Disney imagineers come up with a new scientifically engineered plant type which makes people happier. These are planted all over Disneyland, and then the Greater Los Angles Area. Unfortunately, before the trial finishes, nuclear war breaks out between the United Middle East nations (who on this timeline, declared Jihad against the United States) and the United States. The whole Greater Los Angles area is safely encased in the plants of manufactured. Over approximately 25 generations, not only do things get more ideal, but the people become more content without technology and with simplicity as they forgot things from the outside world so slowly, that few noticed. By the time Giselle was born, few people even knew that there was anything beyond Andalasia (and a part of what we know as the Pacific Ocean).

What do you think?
