the biweekly contest at imaginefx theme is “black pearl” so i decided to start with a black pearl. and then it just kind of turned into this. apparently my brain was a little sleepy because this little guy came out of nowhere. i’ll probably fix it up a bit in photoshop yet if i have time for the imaginefx contest.
so this week i didn’t wait until last minute, yay! someone picked “Middle Earth” as the theme for this week’s challenge over in the Colors! gallery forums, so i decided to paint Smaug the Magnificent. Here he is, sitting atop his hoarded treasure, along with the goblet he stole from me. That’s my name in elvish on the goblet. I was getting pretty lazy by the time I put the treasure in, but I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. May re-do this one in Painter at some point.
another last minute painting
this one’s just from my head, no reference. i need to start clipping references.
of course i left this week until the last minute. i do have a good excuse, but i’ll post about that tomorrow.
i like the colors on this one, but i know the perspective and proportion are off. i was just trying to get one done quick.
making this week’s post early so i’m not scrambling last minute i didn’t have any references when i drew this so the anatomy is off, but i’m fairly happy with it.
note: adding another, just because i was bored
due to unforeseen circumstances, i’ve been away from home since last weekend, so this week’s Colors! post is a bit late making it here but it did get posted to the Colors! gallery on time so i say it counts
