An Old Gods Song by ChasingArtwork An Old Gods Song by ChasingArtwork
Painted something spooky! 
I have been itching to make something with a skeleton for a couple of weeks now (no idea why, just cause).

Figured he/she's something old and extremely powerful thats been slumbering for a long time- dreaming up a new song to sing. Was finally time to wake up and clear the pipes. 

Undecided if its a good or or bad thing that it's awake and singing... thoughts on what it could mean?

I thought the skeleton was eating stars until I read the description. Maybe it still is. Well drawn, and well done.

This piece really struck a chord with me for some reason. I absolutely adore it! If you ever make this available as a print, I would buy it in a heartbeat. Would love to have this framed in my home~ ♥

This looks so epic, and terryfing, and kinda nice, like the lights coming out of the mouth, idk if the skeleton is trouble or not...

I'd like to think it's a good thing it's awake and singing :)

They played their song and the god older than time slept, the chaos of his mere existence dimmed. They continue to sing, lest reality itself be wiped away by his insane throes.

Very nice, though it would work better if it weren't so... Human...

Really good and inspiring work *w* keep it up!
Btw I think that it's fine that he is singing... from its posture, it reminds me of a sort-of act of liberation, or outburst, in a non-violent way.

Perhaps he just likes singing.  Or his song means death or any number of things.

it's bad, definitely bad! The song is the song of the depths, of what lies beyond that isn't. A song of joy, still.

This reminds me of the Japanese demon's the Gashadokuro who used lore people to them then killed them adding there bones to there bodies they were giant skeletons who towered over people. Awesome image I love the tone and feel :D
