Smaug's encounter by yinetyang Smaug's encounter by yinetyang
I haven't seen the second episode yet but wanted to paint one of the big moment of the book. I hope you like it guys.
Edit 22-12-13: Major alterations to give a bigger look at Smaug as some people found it (with reason) tiny+ I've changed the composition. I call it done now. :D

Looks great, the gold actually looks warm and comfortable, nice composition too. I never read the books myself, but will probably have a beer and check out the movie at some point. Are you paintin on very big canvases and then resising the images smaller?

Yes I'm painting on bigger canvas (usually 2500/3000 pixels on the biggest part, over it my computer laggs and it's not an enjoyable experience).
I don't know what you think about the Jackson's adaptation but believe a real Tolkien fan, especially about the hobbit it's nothing like the book. And IMO the hobbit's movies (at least the first one) aren't that great.

Actually, I didn't say that I advise you to read it. It's a pretty simple story and writing. It's really a tale in all it means of simplicity. If you read it, it's with a child eye. If you haven't yet, the Lord of the ring is much much more solid and superior in every way IMO.
Your readings are interesting, especially the one on symbolism.

The terrifying Smaug!! Woha! Nice! I love the shades, they are well managed. But the only thing is that I imagined Smaug bigger... Anyway, nice job, keep it up!

Oh I went to the premiere and I recomend it to you. Is not like the book, but it's an amazing film. I won't tell you nothing about it, because you may watch it! ^^

Hum... I guess I screw up something because it's supposed to be big. I'm very glad you liked it.

Actually you're not the only one saying that so I may improve and update it later. At the moment I need a little break on this one. :D
