Thank you!

Map of Beleriand and realms of the North - map rendering by me, with Thangorodrim, compass rose and tengwar frame by Ominous. Published on-line with Ominous' permission. Based on on maps by J.R.R. Tolkien in HoME XII, Christopher Tolkien in The Silmarillion, Karen Wynn Fonstad in The Atlas of Middle-earth and invaluable tips from Ominous, without whom the map would be incomplete:

Full view at dA:

Note on the buildings - they are more symbols of cities and fortresses, showing their different characters than literal renderings of the actual buildings.

I see ImageShack has removed a lot of my old images in this thread. Fortunately I have switched to storing stuff in a different place, but it will be hard to replace the missing images now, perhaps I'll delete the posts itself (leave them empty).

Anyway recent exercise and instruction how not to follow reference I didn't plan to copy it, just use for pose and hand reference, but finally ended up going too far.

I see I haven't linked the finished dragon:

Cropped, full view at dA or in my CGTalk portfolio.


I finally decided to try watercolors. Here is a second try, from a digital sketch printed on watercolor paper. Watercolors + white acrylics.

I experimented more and spoiled it completely. The sketch is a rejected variation of a rejected face

for the double portrait below:
