Art Prize: Amadeus by TheGrumpyTurtle Art Prize: Amadeus by TheGrumpyTurtle
Because I could not stop for Death,
He kindly stopped for me;
The carriage held but just ourselves
And Immortality.

We slowly drove, he knew no haste,
And I had put away
My labour, and my leisure too,
For his civility.

We passed the school where children played,
Their lessons scarcely done;
We passed the fields of gazing grain,
We passed the setting sun.

We paused before a house that seemed
A swelling of the ground;
The roof was scarcely visible,
The cornice but a mound.

Since then 'tis centuries; but each
Feels shorter than the day
I first surmised the horses' heads
Were toward eternity.


I remember this poem from one of my English classes, and I've always liked it just because it's short, sweet, and to the point. I figured it seemed a good match for this picture.

This is the art prize (gifted) for :icongranite-skull: He wanted me to draw Amadues doing whatever.

I actually had a bit of a hard time coming up with this picture. Because everyone knows Amadeus for his love of violins and tacos, but I wanted to do something a bit different then that. So I was trying to think of any past RPs with him where maybe he said something else important about his life, and then I remembered one where he talked about his brothers for a moment. I figured out Granite had a picture of Amadeus' brothers posted ((Rimeras and Fantago)) and the idea just sort of slowly started forming from there.

I hope you like it Granite! 8D

I love it cookies, it looks really great and I can definitely picture Amadeus seemingly conversing with the starts as his brothers. And you were very close, Rimeras and Fantago. BUT AWESOME STUFF COOKIES I LOVE IT!!!

I'm so glad you like it |D Since it isn't typical Amadeus stuff I was a bit nervous going down this route actually. And I've made the correction in the artist comment >w< So close...so very close. GOOD TO HEAR GRANITE 8D

Yes it is a really nice piece. I love that you decided to go for a lesser known part of Amadeus. Not to say that I don't adore all the taco and violin based gift art. Because I DOOOOOO! But this was a really neat piece and I really like it!
