Well, I had a long break from CHOW and its time to try again. My obvious choice is Psychedelic, gonna throw on some specific floyd Vinyls for sketching, then Shpongle for rendering.
Awesome can't wait to see what everyone does for this
thought I would also throw out a little bit of inspiration
take care and goodluck everyone
Sooooo undecided whether to go with some sort of music I like listening to, or some sort of music that'll LOOK cool... Decisions decisions decisions, eeee! (Probably gonna go with "looks cool" over "sounds cool".)
Too bad we can't do more than one.
Something tells me this round will be "Clash of the Titans" - ish...0.o...
Meh - why not?
Trance meets...something. With mandalas and multiple limbs and...glitters, me thinks. Revision 1 of 1 000 000 to follow...
ooohh this is sweet
Hmm Modern/Classic Piano Queen allowed?
Good luck all!

By the way, here is a preliminary drawing of my black metal Monarch. I might do a prog Monarch and a death metal monarch, too.

Queen of industrial metal. Trying to work in a second angle with a slightly different piece of clothing by having her posed in front of a relatively traditional royal portrait of herself (just using a Photoshop filter to separate them more clearly here for now).
Come to think of it, it was more just plain 'industrial' in mind.
Hmmmmm, I can see this one is going to be KILLER for competition!! I like it!!
Also nobody so far has chosen the music I think i'm going for...
Must the character be human?
NOTE: The deadline has been changed. As with Medusa for ChoW 100 it will be a month long. This means time to make your image ROCK, quite literally. You can also provide more than one entry.
As for whether human or not, human please as this is based on human experience. But variations thereof: ie: angel, vampire, mermaid etc. are OK as they feature in a lot of musical symbolism.
Awesome topic! I'm gonna try for Queen of jazz.
Some good stuff already
I like what you are doing when you mix in a traditional royal portrait.
Looking forward to see how your composition evolve.
Very hard rock
Very interesting start i like it very much.
woundeful sketches. After seeing your previous work I'm sure its going to be great
A punk on a throne of loudspeakers. definitely a royal
Had to do something myself
WIP'ing and stuffz
sorry about being so big!!! Won't do that next time!!!

well here is my first idea so far:
the king of psy trance(goa sign on his chest and stuff) :
the ppl of planet psy loved their king,he was the best theyve ever had,making music so epic that they became addicted to it.as the time passed no one managed to become better then their king so they made a decision. theyve declared him king of psytrance...forever!.
forcing him into this preservation facility theyve kept him alive with these machines which kept regenerating the necessary substances for the body and replacing them constantly thus giving their king imortal life of music creation.he kept creating his divine music in the sealed underground facility long after his ppl were extinct ,due to a global catastrophe.
need to change alot of stuff and still havent thought this threw but well its the first take...might change it completely ^_^ c&c are welcomed and good stuff so far ppl ,ill try to comment as soon as possible ^_^
One month...this is great...
Im in...love watching this thread...
Here's a preliminary sketch of my prog version. It's inspired by stuff like Porcupine Tree, King Crimson, Pink Floyd, etc.
