Hopefully that title caught your attention, because I can't think of any other way to describe my painting. I tried to visualise what heavy metal, conspiracies and awesome would look like in a painting and decided to go for it, haha.

Anyways... I hope you guys like it. I worked on it a couple days a month ago but it wasn't until this week, monday to money, 5 pm to 3 am every morning that it got done, and even then there's still I want to add/fix.

I wasted a lot of time like when I realised my black was actually a grey...

Well anyways, after many stressful hours, its DONE, and I want to share it.

This painting has the spartans from 300, evil generic, dark bad guys, skeleton bikers, Eddie from Iron Maiden, Flying saucers battling jets, and Conan the barbarian fighting reptillians! haha.. My freind recommends I put some nudity and I agree but I just don't know how or if I could work it into the scene... I'm thinking cobra's wrapped around naked chicks, as OTTO would say.. This is the style of art I like to make, stupid, violent, epic, colourful depictions of the darker side of my brain

Anyways, so here it is, it's rather large, I had to make it large so you can see the detail. I forgot to mention, it's on a huge piece of masonite board or something. It was like the whole table top from an art class my room-mate found on the road, just to give you the scale, and thats also why it took so long.. Anyways, So I'll give a link instead of resizing it to put it here:


As well, heres a view of the whole wall painting thus far, it was going to be our project to let others contribute to but so far other then the nebula and planet on the right, it's entirely mine:


And lastly, I'm trying to get a job, or at least make some cash making custom art for people. Like maybe you got a band that needs an album cover or something, that's the kind of art I like doing the most, so If you like my art and you want me to make something, by all means PLEASE contact me.

Well enjoy guys.

That's pretty damn impressive dude.

I'm trying to put a band together, and If we ever make a CD I will be sure hit you up.

Hey really nice painting. Are you sure it won't fade or chip though since it is on a table top?

5 to 3?! Gets some sleep!

thanks for the comments guys.

thehumbleone, I would love to work on your band art if you get it going, contact me if you need me.

Nyorai, yeah I was screwed up for sleep for a while, I actually got only an hour of sleep the night before I had to go back to work, I was off for 2 weeks. It was worth it though. I don't think I have to worry about it chipping, I don't think its the kind of material that does that. I'm going to put some sort of finish on it eventually so maybe that will help protect it too.

Here's a picture of eddie I did years ago for anyone that's interested:

It's kind of small but its an old picture. The painting has taken some damage since then so this is the best I got.

Aso, heres a smaller, monochromed version of the artwork above:

I tried to make it like that colour the movie 300 is kinda in. Like an old paperback novel. Well anyways, at least it's smaller, but the sheer size of the painting is why I had to keep the image large.

Thanks guy.

Whoa, you have talent man, no doubt about that. You're painting is ill. Would love to see some more of you're work.

thanks man. I've just started to really make lots of art, and take pictures of it and stuff so at the moment I have a limited supply of it. I've been mostly scrounging up stuff I did as many as 3-4 years ago when I was still learning some basics... I'm STILL learning.. You can see what I got so far by going to my gallery at:

theres nothing really good on there, just like some photography and crappy landscape paintings. I'm about to make an album cover for this band though and I think it's gunna look really awesome and when its done i'll post it on that site, but until then I don't got much.

Thanks again for the comments.

Cool stuff. I like the Planets and the Landscape. Thanks for sharing.

Good luck with the album cover.

Yeah I really need to get more art on there, I need to show what I can do so I can get out of this damn job i'm in!

reply to post by CavemanDD

As I told you before, you are a sick artist.

This painting is really deep and artistic.

As you create more you should post it. You could definitely start up a business or something with your art.

Keep it up caveman.

By the way, if you are looking for inspiration or topics to paint/draw, let me know and I'll figure something out.

Good looks

right on man thanks.

I'm working something out with this new zealand band right now. I have a great concept... theres like an oil tower/military base, with a mountain behind it with a nuke silo on top, theres like mushroom clouds ands explosions in the background, a crack in the ground with fire and lava and this domed city, and the dome is breaking and buildings are falling, and theres a bunch of people in suits all chained up by some like 2030ish corrupt police or something, haha its gunna be awesome. It's too bad I don't feel like working on it right now though...

You're right, I need my own business, but I need to make more art to get people interested.

Anyways, thanks again for the comments man. And come up with ideas for me if you want, that would be awesome. If you want a picture of anything I'd be glad to make it for you and send it to you in the mail. Its one more piece for the gallery for me anyway.

I've been meaning to try and make some conciousness...dimensional..crystals... type of painting too but I haven't a clue how I would do it yet.
