Artwork Description

Boy I am eating a bit of humble pie with this piece. After loads of great feedback from the forum, I kind of burned out in working all of it in, and was a bit lazy on a few things on the reworking. So now I had to go back and touch up some areas. The big touch ups were on the dragon's tail, but the spikes were also touched up as was the moon, the dragon's face and a few other really small things.

This is Glaurung the Golden from the Silmarilion who was driven from a battle by dwarves who had developed masked armor to defend against his fire.

Hi danny, nice work! I love the lighting on this, especially on Glaurung. The faint hints of moonlight cantrasting against the bright firelight really gives it a sense of reality and form.

Great Piece the lighting and colouring...

Unfortunately, the editors decided that the detail I posted of the head was "unrefined or lacked detail." I like that detail shot quite a lot and was dissapointed by that appraisal of it. Oh well, the piece got in. That detail and several others can be seen at my web page (

Yay! great to see this in... Hey can we get a detail of the dragon head? I know you put a lot of detail in, and it's my favorite part of the pic! Laughing out loud
