Artwork Description

The title would translate as "The Resting Place of the Dead King". This piece is just random inspiration thrown together actually:

- Black Metal (well, it was gothic metal really, Tristania, Sins of Thy Beloved, Sirenia, and Trail of Tears, but there are black metal influences here and there);
- Lord of the Rings (I guess you can 'see' what I mean);
- The art of Theodor Kittelsen (heavy dose, and that's also why I went for a Norwegian title).

I was going for a bleak, sad, and very lonely and dark landscape picture. I hope I have achieved that, and that it will come haunt you in your sleep.

Yeah, that's something to wander by in your travels. Along with the black cat and the broken mirror I think that is one of those things that you are best pretending you didn't see and just keep on walkin'!

I'd like to see some other drawings of yours if you're under an influence of Black Metal Smile
I pretty much like the atmosphere I get when looking at the presented art piece.

I really love the way you incorporated the face into the cliff. Masterful pencil work

Art at its best.
