Interesting - is this the name of a band or something? Looks like the album cover of some death metal bands here in China.

Generally pretty cool - maybe a bit more work on the rocks would be cool. Neat idea.

Yes, Emperor is the name of the band, and they were a black metal band (a bit different from death metal). The original cover itself is a Gustave Dore illustration, but I recreated in it's use for the cover of As The Shadows Rise, which is an EP released by the band in 1994.

Thank you!

Ah yea - black metal is good stuff too - I'll look 'em up :)

I always enjoy when someone re-creates an album cover out of LEGO. :)
This one is quite accurate to the original picture, I most say.
