Flames Unquenchable by Elucidator Flames Unquenchable by Elucidator
Painted this picture of Smaug for a contest, but it didn't place very well. Nonetheless, these are my other submissions:


I might make a wallpaper out of it sometime. Let me know if that interests you.
EDIT: switched up the fire a little, gave it some billowing smoke clouds and added the front barrels. A little better, I think.

Time: didn't count, probably about 18 hours or so?

Its well drawn but its to small. Smaug is insanely big.

Thanks for your opinion. I did this painting a year ago when I was far less skilled at things like proportion, perspective and composition. If I painted Smaug nowadays he would be much more terrific.

Fantastic!
The other work in that contest must have been spectacular to outdo you here
It a fantastic and unique angle that you've used and I just love the vibrancy of that fire.
Brilliant work, you should be proud of this :)
