Hall of the Mountain King by ChrisCold Hall of the Mountain King by ChrisCold
Thought i should try painting my favorite music pieces and see how it will work out.

Always wanted to paint this one and it's a nice start with classics.

more to come soon

This combined with another one of your works fits perfectly to this piece of music.

make it into an animation with the music piece echoing through the place and the Mountain King listening to it from his throne

WuuUUuUUgh!  This gives me such a case of the willies!  :lol:  Oh my gosh how ominous!  Haha, just like the music.  Oh my gosh that is so.... spooky.  The little guy in the front for some size comparison really makes this awesome.  That is one amazing Mountain King!  :D

Ah...there it is...When it comes to setting the mood or any sense of feeling in an image, you get it just right every time, and that's really tough. (Those eyes!)(The drastic scale!) (The perfectly placed areas that lack detail!) (The fear!) There is so much to learn from your art. If you think of yourself as anything less than an acomplished artist, trust me, your trying to fool yourself......I'll be watching....Just brilliant, brilliant I say! And thank you.

 

Safety and Peace

I loved both the classical rendition and the heavy metal version by Savatage(?). I like the classical one a bit more since it leaves more to the imagination, but the second version is a great swords n sorcerry piece thats great for any D&D game night haha

Epic and so intriguing, the mood is so eerie and haunghtingly bizarre, capturing the elements of this song. I think your music piece idea is marvelous and that you should pursue it!

The setting and colors chosen instill a deep, bone-chilling cold. We can only weep for the lone figure about to catch sight of the Hall's master...

A chilling, atmospheric piece to go along with one of the most suggestively-creepy pieces of music I have ever heard ;)

...reminds me of Shadow of the Colossus, actually...

I can actually feel the atmosphere within that place...

Darkened ire and kingly grace.

I can almost feel that beings eyes upon me.

Here is hoping I can run from that wicked space.

Excellent painting, I'm envious of your talent.
