Smaug's Arrival (speedpainting)

Note to myself: I should stop saying I get more active again. A lot can happen. (Like the very last school week and other things to organize)

It needs some time until the warnigs arrive in the mines deep in the mountain...this time, the beast was faster.

I sat longer on this than I wanted, I guess it were about 3.5h. I always wonder to which point I can still call a work a speed painting, I always decide this on how I worked and how much detail I add...
I worked again primarly with the lasso tool in the beginning and did the rest with brushes and added two gradient maps in the end.
Photoshop used.

I wish you all a nice day/time!

Intimidating and energetic. I think that angling helps the effect.

Thank you! I wanted to try this angle for a long time, but it never really fit. :D I thought for this scene it could work.

This is nice, thanks for sharing! For some reason it works better for me in small sizes, though...

Thanks for having a look! I mostly painted it in smaller size and there's a lack of detail because it stayed as a speedpainting, so it makes sense when it looks better as thumbnail.

Be active at your own pace, it'll always be a delight to have you back from time to time. This piece is amazing! Atmosphere is cool and scale works well. There is no horizontal line, which makes it very dynamic. You're a master!

I'll be! :hug:
Thank you so much...I wanted to try such a tilt for a longer time now, but never found a motive to try it...I felt like this one would be a chance to try it. :D
