My World Shall Not Be Shaken by TobiasRyenAmundsen My World Shall Not Be Shaken by TobiasRyenAmundsen
Everybody feels blue sometimes, and well, at least for me, it often helps to really listen to music I love. Music is a window into another world for me, and I always combine it with painting. Music illustrates life, all of its aspects and IS life. It's passion. I don't know, it's all emotional to me. And passion and music keeps the storm in my world - at bay.

Please tell me what you think, and feel free to tell me how much music means to you guys.
Thanks for now.

Approximately 2 days in Photoshop CS5. No references used. I think music inspired me to do this one. I was listening to As Intended by Foreground Set, a highly underestimated Norwegian musician and I just... got this image within me. Try to combine listening to THAT particular song and watching this painting. It's kinda cool!
Here, listen to it. YOU MUST !!

Love you all, take care
yours truly,
- Tobias

Music is......Well, music is everything...I once herd someone say this and I believe it,"Some people pray, when I turn up the radio." If music didn't exist, neither would I. It changes people. The way they act and the way they feel. When I hear music, it enters my body, filling my veins and heart with the flow of it. Music binds the world together.

I totally agree. It's hard to explain the true feeling of music and playing music, making music. It's wonderful. Amazing.

This is so awesome! I listened to the music you linked and it's pretty cool.
But as soon as I saw this pic I imagined some sort of dramatic, epic, wave crashing violin music.
Nothing in particular, but it's there in my head everytime I look at this image. :D

It's all relative, and some music might function better for you. :) Do whatever suits yourself!
I feel the same way, and somehow I want to add "beautiful" too. That's what that song is, dramatic, epic, beautiful and if you listen very closely you can hear a violin-ish sound too. It's like someone swiftly but gently and passionately pulls the strings of the violin.

Would you mind if I used this image for an MTG card? All atrwork will be credited to the artist, of course.

Awesome, thank you. MTG is Magic the Gathering, a ridiculously awesome trading card game. I make some of my own original cards, and I can't draw for shit, so I kind of have to bum art off of other people.

Absolutely wonderful. I really can relate to how you feel about music, I often believe that it is one of the things that have kept me alive over the years. Yes I know that sounds quite 'emo' but I really do believe that it has helped me to get through a lot. Thank you very much for this astounding and inspirational piece. :)

Sorry for the late reply, man. I was kinda... thinking about what I should say in return, since it was such a great comment! It means so much, sincerely, that people like you get something from my art, I mean, that it means something to you. :)
That's just what I want. If at least ONE person feels the same way as you do, then I believe I have succeeded. Getting even more people that have the same affection to a painting of mine, is just a bonus.

And being emo is a part of life. We all go through it, and we have to find our own paths and ways in how to deal with emotional distress. Thank you very much for the great comment! :)
