Stargazer by leothefox Stargazer by leothefox
Those who catch the rainbow build a tower of stone, no sign of the morning coming, out too long in the midnight sea. Metal inspired fantastical surreal piece. Partly inspired by Beksinski.

Thanks! The title comes from the song by Rainbow, from when Dio was their vocalist :D

I wish I could write a decent critique as you request some but at this moment I just can't because it would only be some fanatic yet dythirambic words, very positive but meaningless ^^

Excellent work all my congratulations !

The base colors made the image look deceptively simple, but then when I gave it a closer look I saw lots of detail. Looks like lots of bodies. Good use of texture.

Haha, yeah. Without those piled up pieces of bodies, who could ever feel truly alone?

Would the body pieces be dead, undead, or other?

Mind you, that's only in the more surreal and fantastical pictures. In some of the straight "down to earth" fantasy bits dead is dead.

You're welcome...I've been listening to Dio (and Rainbow, not so much Black Sabbath)since 1984, so I ought to! And did get a flash-back to 'Last in line' when I saw your artwork! We rock, man.

:iconleothefox:
leothefox Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2012   General Artist
Awesome! Hehe my favorite Sabbath is the stuff with Dio. I grew up with a lot of classic rock, which naturally included Rainbow. I've been rocking out to "Man on the Silver Mountain" since 1994 :giggle:

I feel that the 'Heaven & Hell'-album was a worthy end, I relly like it...but I thought Ozzy would be the first to go!

That would have made sense, but then, Keith Richards is still here as well ^^
That was a great album true (love love "Neon Knights"), they were fools for booting Dio out, but if they hadn't we wouldn't have "Holy Diver" :D

:iconhunden73:
Hunden73 Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2012
I agree, but what I meant was the album 'The devil you know' with H.&H., but I didn't have the title in my head.
Funny though, two of my all time favourites that's not from Dio's own records, are '...silver mountain' and 'Neon K.' -
and you mention them right away!

Ah, I see.
That is an awesome coincidence. I'm also really fond of "Stargazer" (as evidenced in this picture).

I like the background especially, with the waterwheel pulling the rainbow along. (That is what that's supposed to be, right?) This is actually quite similar to an idea for a mural I recently got. But I can't tell you! It's one of those ideas where it's so good you feel obligated to keep it a secret so that you can get the praise. Anyhow, this is one of my favourites of yours..., Like, that I ever saw. And I actually spend the most time in your gallery, cruising through your stuff than any other person I watch. That's because Surreal is Super and Realistic is Retarded... And Alliteration is Awesome.
