Smaug and his treasure by Shockbolt Smaug and his treasure by Shockbolt
The next Middle-Earth inspired image in my series of them. This one was finished a couple of days ago.

Smaug inside Lonely mountain, ontop of his pile of gold and treasure.

Ask for permission before using this image for any reason.

Thanks for viewing :-)

*edit: Hey thanks for selecting this as a DD! I wouldn't concider this one of my top Middle-Earth related images myself, so be sure to have a look at the other ones in my gallery too! :) *

Smaug and his treasure by =Shockbolt. With an enchanting color palette and delightful details, this depiction of Smaug (from The Hobbit) is delightful and mesmerizing! ( Suggested by katzypotter and Featured by aunjuli )

I can not get over the lighting in this image! I've never seen anything like it, the way the treasure shines and the dragons belly shines, it just looks so real and captivating! I didn't know you could do that in an illustration.

Not to mention how awesome the illustration is as a whole, the composition is great and the dragons head in particular is perfect.

Where can I see this image in greater detail?

Also, have you made tutorials on how you paint? Because that would be cool.

Thanks! It's starting to become one of the older images I have on here, but people still like it :)

I haven't created any tutorials into how I paint, yet, I might do sometime in the future though.
