Smaug's Wrath by Exileden Smaug's Wrath by Exileden
My armor is like tenfold shields! My teeth like swords! My claws, spears! The shock of my tail, a thunderbolt! My wings, a hurricane! And my breath, death!


Finally! Probably one of my craziest traditional paintings I've did during this year! The amount of time, effort and frustration I've put in this picture was really long and crazy.
I'm very happy for all effort I've put into this picture, technically it could be better if I didn't have the deadline so close.


Well... it's my submission for The Hobbit Design contest.


Please vote my entry if you like! [link]

EDIT: WOW! Just now I see they have submitted my artwork on the contest! Just it's quite strange that I have not received any confirmation emails. Thank you so much for pointing this out! :hug: You guys are the best!


Infos: The painting was done by copic markers (base layer), watercolors, alcohols, airbrush, acrylic and colored pencils. And another layer of copics. Done on A3 format on silky paper.

Also a great thanks to ~Arkelion who helped me with painting clouds where I was stuck with them. He is greatly skilled artist, especially with clouds!

 After seeing the Desolation of Smaug, I have to admit this design does resemble the CGI dragon in the film!

Hey. My dad was telling me how he wants to make his own animated version of The Hobbit. I told him that I could find people good at art, to possibly create it. I wonder if he wouldn't like your painting. I think he would. I'm just bandying this idea about. He told me he wanted it exactly like the book, though...
