Saw the second Hobbit movie today and loved it. Decided to do a Smaug speedpaint to wind down for bed tonight. As a little girl, Smaug was my absolute favorite (the Rankin-Bass one, and the one depicted by Alan Lee). As a slightly less little girl, Smaug is still one of my favorites. Today I thought: will I draw Thranduil, or Smaug?!
I like where this is going, so I might keep working on it on and off and start putting colors into it, even though I have two other paintings that are also works in progress right now… I have had a bit of a major artistic breakthrough this past month and it’s a really amazing, satisfying feeling. Thanks to everyone who hung out on the stream. You guys can attest to the fact I listened to "I See Fire" by Ed Sheeran on repeat the whole time.
Also, I laughed so hard at Bombur’s little barrel fighting scene..!
