Durin's Bane by aragorn
Done in Painter 7. I was literally finishing it the first time when Painter crashed and corrupted the file so I had to start over. The second time turned out better though. This piece is the first where I have taken the time to get reference for everything. Gandalf's robes came from an actual costume I own. I also used photo reference of fire, bats, tigers, rams etc for this piece. The painting was done designed to be printed at 30"x19" approximately. There are too many detail shots to post them all on epilogue, but you can see them all at my web page. This is a revised version with some errors in the face fixed, and whiskers added.
