Thanks Jenaro ...sometimes, when I use more immediate materials, like crayons, the childlike enjoyment comes through...

Terry, you have an amazing talent! This is by far my favorite piece, not to mention I love dragons. I love the use of color and texture. Great job!

As I said before I absolutely love your style/technique. It's so good and full of humor..... we need that more than anything else! This picture is sooo good. I like his expression and the coloring ofcourse.

I love dragons and I love this one. Such character too. I've made 5 dragons (out of fabric) so far.

All your work is great. Excited to see more!

Ah well, that just what the sly old worm, Smaug! wants you to think...beware that you don`t fall under the dragons spell!...ha ha

Hmm ... Can't say that I think of Smaug when I see this picture. He looks to friendly. Maybe thats just me.
Still, its a well done piece.

Hi Marilyn..this is a lot like the one I had in my gallery at Elfwood, but slightly updated, to make him look more mean. The medium on paper can look quite naff sometimes, but once scanned in to your computer, can take on quite a different persona

Hmmm. I remember Smaug. I always did like the way you portrayed him. I agree about the mediums. I like to mix also. Sometimes one gives just the right effect even though you are using another at the time.

not pastel Nick, but chalk, trouble is there not enough media types to choose from, when you post a picture. It was created in crayon then chalk, followed by green ink..

Guest's picture

I thought this was pastel at first. I must say, I love this kind of illustrative whimsical look in this kind of art. The specks of reflected light, and the texture of his skin, is so well done.

and more to come Anneke! its the run up to LOTR. movie, so I will be posting regularly now, for a while...I think the green ink was closest to hand at the time.

Wow, you have some great contributions to your gallery, Terry! Beautiful colours on this one. I like the green lines you added to it, very much!

Art at its best.
