50K pageview celebration WIP by Shockbolt 50K pageview celebration WIP by Shockbolt
The 50K pageviews celebration artwork is under way.
As promised, it will be something Tolkien-related.

Here is the unfinished, greyscale backdrop for it. I'm adding the action as I write this, then everything will get colors later today.

So..can You guess what location and what will take place here?

Finished version will be posted sometime this coming week.

How do you do this !? Make a place completely empty, but still have a feeling of suspence- the 'seconds away from mayhem' flavor.
I love it!

You make your dragon sound all cuddly. blech You should be saying things like 'easy boy', 'don't eat the nice mailman boy', 'let the lawyer live boy'. All right, no one would miss the lawyer.

It's allowed to eat them, but, as I don't eat them, I eat smores, so, eat the mailman, but afterwards, grind his femur into a stick so I can skewer a marshmallow and use the fire of their corpses to toast MEH SMORE'S O_O

That'd be cool, except burning corpses stink, don't ask how I know. Bone would make a good skewer, and no splinters.

Wow, dette var utrolig bra!
Liker det veldig i svart/hvitt, men gleder meg stort til å se det i farger også.
Lager du disse bildene fra scratch i PS eller skisser du noe for hånd først?
Liker måten du lager tåken, utrolig stemningsfullt!

PS: Litt usikker på hvor dette er fra..?

Keep up the good work!!=)
