The Crimson King by morganagod The Crimson King by morganagod
45 Min speed painting. Almost didn't do it because I was tired from the Surfer Raven, but about half way through Conan I decided that it was an image I just had to get out.

What I saw in my head when the Crimson King was taunting Roland. The whole time I was painting this I was thinking "GOD DAMN MOTHERFUCKING GUNSLINGER SON OF A BITCH LINE OF ELD FUCK YOU!"

I think I was channeling the crazy bastard.

Once again, I imagine not many people like my paintings, but they are fun for me, so I keep doing them. :D

edit: adjusted the arm to what I saw in my head, fixed the color, and flipped the canvas because I didn't like the old composition.

i'm sorry but i have to quote this:

"The rusted chains of prison moons
Are shattered by the sun.
I walk a road, horizons change
The tournament's begun.
The purple piper plays his tune,
The choir softly sing;
Three lullabies in an ancient tongue,
For the court of the crimson king..."

you got the eyes perfect, terrifying. and the mouth is great.
you know, i love these books, and they were written well, and the ending taught me something; but, the crimson king disappointed me a little after i thought about what i was expecting from the end of the first book. oh well.
your version is awesome.

You must have skipped a lot of what was wrote or read it a long time ago. He had a railing around him, and a crate at his feet which blocked up past his knee's.

Also was sure he was pale white, maybe I'm wrong. It is still a great picture.

Equally as badass as the tower speedpainting.

Did anyone else think "EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!" when they first saw this?

I did. ^_^

I think this pic is missing an element in the composition since theres alot of empty space to the right.

Is he meant to be hueg?

I like your speedpaintings. Of course, they've been of a genre I am interested in, so I can't claim objectivity. But they are good none the less.
