Der Holle Rache by Simokaos Der Holle Rache by Simokaos
Fanart of the Queen of the Night, from "The Magic Flute" by W. A. Mozart.

I first heard of this opera when I was around 12 or 13 years old by my music teacher, when he showed the film "Amadeus" (1984) to our class.
He told us about the "Der Hölle Rache" aria and was very firm about not trying to sing it because in that time we were developing our voice and could be ruined...

Anyway it remained in my mind and I recently stumbled upon it on Youtube...and for the first time I really appreciated the musicality in the german language :giggle:
So here the fanart :aww:
There are a lot of symbols here, they refers about the story of course :D It's your job to find them for now :D

Sketch with HB pencil and then done in Illustrator :thumbsup:

Details here [link]

You can find one of the things that inspired me, the aria singed by Diana Damrau here

I like this art work , because is symmetric , also I saw previous art (art work process)where u showed how completed this. Long and hard work was ,but results is very good , in my opinion.

Idea good,but u need to show object form(girl body) , that it's have shape of circularity,even if u wanted that all was flattered . Maybe it's abstract or not ,but I first time see something like this.
Still , not bad . U wanted say something by this art work and I hope others will understand it . :]

Good luck to making it more better than this :hug: . Thumbs up 4 u .

BRILLIANT WORK!!!! I'm totally in love with the bold colors and symmetry used here, plus I love "The Magic Flute".

Keep up the good work :)
