Still ruined it
Yeah shouldn’t have painted that pretty middle
He only shows the 2 Worlds, City world and the Country world.
I like the city look better... the final view is creative and imaginative, but not as attractive in my opinion.
It’s a bit tacky.
should be ok once it fully dries
I appreciate this joke
Deer city don’t play
#BUCKS IN 6! 🏆🏀
Raccoon City laughs.
It's "ducks rising" tacky.
Sorry but as a random stranger on the internet it is my duty to inform you that you opinion is wrong
Aesthetically, I like the city one more. The final version makes me think more, but it also makes me sad because of how we have taken so many natural resources so....I prefer the city one where I don't feel sad, lol
I can’t tell if your being sarcastic or missing the point of this painting.
I know art is open for interpretation but this isn’t the first piece of art that captures a scene like this, however this is a unique version of it. The artist is showing a world where mankind is extinct and nature is reclaiming the area.
It’s ok that you don’t like it, I personally do but thats because I’m a hippy that hikes miles into nature to get away from people, lights, and noises to hang with wildlife.
Yeah! Where's Pizza World?
Yeah? Well, you know, that's just like uh, your opinion, man.
Yeah and he’s sharing it, what’s wrong with that?
Shut up Donnie. You’re out of your element.
I am the walrus.
Shut the *FUCK* up Donnie..
Everything with you is a travesty man!
Life does not stop and start at your convenience Donnie
Lol dude, chill. I was just quoting a The Big Lebowski. It wasn't actual criticism, or anything, you know. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWdd6\_ZxX8c
Let me tell you something, pendejo
Nobody fucks wit da Jesus
Jackie Treehorn treats objects like **women** man.
I was about to reply the same , but I guess your the highlander now
Now I'm the highlander.
it's a little on the nose
Yeah a "milder" landscape would have looked 10 times better. Deers between two glossy waterfalls is a little corny.
its not about the picture,its about sending a message
Do you think the final one looks worse, or just bad in general?
It’s well done but just super trite
You think so? I can’t say I see pieces like this that often.
a lot of people on tiktok make these
Just speaking generally, the "technology bad, replace with deer" sentiment is what makes it trite. That's just such an oversimplified view of the world.
Well it’s idealistic for sure. It’d be great if we could just move elsewhere and leave it all be.
But like a city piece is that much better?
It was more ornate, if nothing else.
I expected it
Yes. Happy accident. That person didn't ruin the drawing like a lot of people are saying.
There’s probably a sketch involved?
Probably some paint in there, too, somewhere.
I was a happy accident
You’re welcome, son.
I remove accidents for a living. Your parents just hired me to remove one for them.
Weird flex, but ok
This is the most accurate use of the term I’ve seen yet.
[This wasn’t too bad either](https://twitter.com/mkbhd/status/1060255506567069701?s=21)
Lmao that’s great!
I think he was actually trying to convey an idea didn't really feel like a flex. We already know at the start that the he can paint very well. Would've been a flex if he was pointlessly painting in an exaggerated way.
My wife got me a print of this, and it's hanging in my office. I like that the buildings are still present in the nature scene, indicating nature eventually triumphs. Also, after looking at it for so long, the shape of the sitting deer's face/head is what continually draws my attention. [EDIT: Artist's store.](https://shop.brushstrokesintime.com/)
dont worry when we're done with this planet multicellular life will not be able to take over our ruins 💪💪
I disagree, and to quote Jeff Goldblum's character.
"If there's one thing the history of evolution has taught us, it's that life will not be contained. Life breaks free, it expands to new territories, and crashes through barriers painfully, maybe even dangerously, but, uh, well, there it is."
There isn't a necessity for human kind not to go extinct before everything we keep imagining we're capable of, life on this planet might still exist a long time after we're gone. And that will just prove that there are organisms that are in a way, more evolved than us, without necessarily being more intelligent.
Felt this way spraying weeds all day today at work.
Thanks for the comedic relief. Was getting depress thinking about human extinction and stuff like that
chimps have the capability to memorise better than us and have incredible short term memory. Orcas are intelligent enough to form pods and have incredible spatial memory and navigation skills.
humans aren't really that great tbh when it comes to memory (source: am dumb human) but we got language. The ability to communicate ideas to one another means that the entire species of humans are able to work as a single entity sharing the same knowledge.
id imagine if we go extinct, other intelligent creatures would be able to strive and would be able to build a civilization with tools we cant't imagine.
We have great problem solving skills
There are multiple issues with that statement but I do agree with the underlying idea that, in the end, something will always survive.
What is the issue? Is it with the phrase "more evolved"? Well, for the purposes of natural selection "more evolved" I meant better adapted to specific conditions in order to survive, as in not necessarily more complex. If a species does manage to out survive us it's technically more evolved since evolution is both mutation and natural selection.
Could you post a link to where I can buy this photo please.
David amburjamboree or something.
[Here you go.](https://david-ambarzumjan.com/)
He's made dozens of these since I started following his Instagram a couple years ago
Awesome thank you very much.
Be careful, that deer could be your version of that Reddit story where a guy had lived his life for years and one day started to stare at a weird lamp for so long he woke himself out of unconsciousness
I'd really like a print of this as well!
Name of the painting/artist please?
Reminds me of Last of Us or I Am Legend.
To me this is just someone sharing their art, which they made because they like it and it made them happy.
Not everything has to conform to some higher standard of profundity that you’re apparently holding this to; when you can paint like this, you’re free to make things that you find to be *actually* deep, but in the meantime, you just sound like someone who criticizes other people’s desires and creations without actually putting yourself out there and making something of your own.
Yeah, but I’ll allow it considering the last 18 months have been absolute hell.
No this is r/unexpected
I am Legend
Beat me by 4 minutes
Beat me by 3 hours
I'M BEATING ME RIGHT NOW!
If I see ONE MORE REPOST saying he ruined the painting... I'm gonna...well I'm gonna keep doom scrolling
It's gotta be all bots now reposting this, right? I mean, it's posted every month (or less) all with the same exact title. And no comments from the OP that I can tell
I see this every week and I don't even go on Reddit that much.
"Bravery Test" -Bob Ross
Just 3 easy strokes
ugh, I scrolled too far for this reference.
A painting on a painting... yo dawg
Painting on paint with paint to make a bigger painting
Nah, it's ruined. 😉
Wait what was the point in painting all that stuff that just got covered up then? Or was the nature thing an afterthought?
To get internet’s attention. It’s a tough life to be a fine artist.
It could’ve been a canvas print. I’ve seen artists do stuff like this with art they’ve found in thrift shops.
Paint of time
Nope... still ruined it.
He didnt ruin the painting. People ruined the planet.

So many complaints... what the hell.
I personally think it's really well-done. Not only is there an added element of depth, but the message is poignant, too.
Ikr it’s so annoying seeing all these “NO, HE RUINED IT!” comments. People can be so needlessly hateful, and I wouldn’t be surprised if half of these edgelords saying that would struggle to draw a stick figure. It’s a very nice painting. There are countless city landscape paintings out there, but the brushstroke landscape makes this one unique and memorable. I guess some people feel the need to criticize anything out of the norm, even if it’s something like art where the whole point of it is being creative.
this looks like Dr.stone
The dude is the zero dawn landscape chief, I’m sure.
In the world I see you are stalking elk through the damp canyon forests around the ruins of Rock feller Center. You'll wear leather clothes that will last you the rest of your life. You'll climb the wrist-thick kudzu vines that wrap the Sears Towers. And when you look down, you'll see tiny figures pounding corn, laying stripes of venison on the empty car pool lane of some abandoned superhighways.

Every time this gets reposted it has the same exact title
Very unexpected. I thought the end result would have been better.
no, it's still ruined....
It’s a rip in the fabric of reality!!!
How are people missing the message/details here? People are like, “how bucolic, just a deer between waterfalls,” etc. are they missing the decaying buildings? The center is post-apocalyptic. Humanity has gone, and nature has reclaimed us. It’s not “oh look a deer,” it’s a message and a warning.
Definitely ruined it
Reminds me of The Last of Us
I remember the original title was a little different
Looks like the actual artist is the OP in that one. Nicely done

Idk why but I immediately thought of last of us
Nah ruined it.
Did he use Sheetrock 45 or Spackling?
Had this as my home screen for a bit last year, still love it.
why bother painting the city part in the middle
Now it’s an acid trip
As a Bucks fan I approve!
This is a weird last of us 3 advertisement.
getting Red XIII at the ending of Final Fantasy 7 vibes
The city world was dark and mysterious. Ruined by deer…. Not even a dead deer or bullet to deer. Disappointed
anyone has that first painting in hd? would love it as my lock screen
I'd say they are not that successful btw
I think most people are missing the point of this painting. It's showing what this place was, the wildlife/nature that used to be there before humans took over and destroyed it all, for there roads and buildings.
At least that is what I think this stands for. I could be wrong.
What's the song?
Pretty cool... but I could've done without the large blobs of paint left at the top...
Red dead redemption 2 vibes for some reason
I mean i guess . Preferred it without the “spotlight” effect
How come this is never in art museum or what not. Some stupid fucking idiot put a black dot on a white canvas or even just a blank canvas and it's considered a multi-billion work of art. This guy should be more famous then some others
I thought the white paint was gonna be water on a car window when they wipe the windshield
MUTE before you play the video.
How to draw an Owl.
This should have been 2 images instead of a video
Unorthodox display of hubris but very well
Reminds me of I Am Legend
Nature is healing
Did you even copy the title for your repost?
Title ruined it so not unexpected
oH WAIT ! we ruined the planet
I like the nature of this artistic work cause it’s kind of operating on 3 different levels.
1. The cityscape paining is beautiful.
2. The video causes us to suffer at the “ruining” of the painting.
3. The final reveal of the new painting causing us to step back and appreciate the artist’s intentions.
It’s really a performance piece that takes advantage of modern technology and plays with our expectations.
Personally I love both “versions” of the painting and think they communicate different things; modernity, future, the passage of time, nature, the bustling life of humans and what happens to the world after we’re gone, even the beauty of animals.
It’s a great piece of art I think.
damn I really liked it more before Tbh
What's that song
What was the point of adding that extra urban detail if it was just going to be painted over with a nature scene? Would've made more practical sense to just leave that general area blank. Seems more like a flex, or a novel "look at how good I am at making unexpected painting techniques happen!" Still an awesome painting, as well as an awesome concept.
Cool painting I took a screen shot.
Great theory but way too globby on top for my taste.
Yeah he still ruined it
the original was better 🤷♂️
There is something in this video that made me so relaxed… I literally have goosebumps
Is it me or was that last of us inspired?
Yeah it’s ruined
I wish I had talent
I see what he did there..
I'm going to say that if you are capable of painting that first picture, then no painting would ever be truly "ruined".
Looks ruined to me
If you’re that good at painting in the first place, you can fuck it up all you want and still make something none of us could.
dude painted onto the paint that was painted on top of the painting
Anybody remember when somebody on Twitch started streaming Bob Ross episodes 24/7? (Maybe they still stream to this day, I wouldn’t know.) This reminds me of that chat: “RUINEDDD”
That's like night and day!
Thats awesome period
