Come now, don't be shy, Bilbo!
My first dragon drawing. I was hoping to try a different, much more loose, style. I don't know though. :)
Merry Christmas guys!

Please don't repost!

Smaug: No. Me want sleepy.

Oh my! This is really lovely and you captured all of the details so well! (I cant imagine how long painting all that gold took)

And hhhHHHhhgh, Benedict's dragon voice will be the death of me.

Thank you, darling! :heart:
Oh gosh this painting was somewhat frustrating, I really had no clue what I was doing! I'm glad you like it :huggle:

Ohhhh Ben's voice is amazing isn't it?! I couldn't help but squeal and jump in my seat when I heard his voice!

Pff, no clue what you were doing?? It doesnt come off that way at all. A really well done piece <3

Ughhh yes, one man's voice should not have that much power!!!

You're very welcome! I really need to do some Hobbit art one of these days! (I did a tiny Merlin/Hobbit crossover doodle but that doesnt really count haha)

I bet it did! I think he actually talked about that somewhere..

Ohh you really should! I've been wanting to draw more Hobbit characters but man the planets have not been aligned for me to draw these past few months. Hopefully I can get to drawing more soon though!

I remember hearing him talk about it in an interview :P His voice is just too much, even for his parents!

Yeah, drawing for me has been tough lately too. I've been doing a lot of little doodle spams on tumblr, but my productivity still seems so low. And I'm behind on some things too. Bah. 

Oh gosh haha, I can only imagine what Ben's voice must have been like and the awkwardness when he transitioned into puberty XD

Yeah I just feel like instead of trying to draw i should be doing other things, like studying for school since i have an important exam coming up :/ Oh well, after that exam is over i'll have more time to do what i want. :)

Haha oh gosh yes, how would i have loved to be there to experience Ben going through puberty. Bless him. :heart:

It does seem to get easier and faster the more you paint doesn't it? But holy bajeszus you're improving so much in such a small amount of time and i'm so proud of you!!! :heart:

Yes! I feel like I should get the commissions i was asked for done...but even thinking about doing them gives me anxiety :/ I hate being asked for commissions and I hate not being able to say no. But I guess the more practice I get the better ;~; 
I'm glad you see my improvement though! :heart: Thank you!

I know the feeling. When anyone asks me to make something for them I feel bad saying no so I end up doing whatever it is they want. I warn them that I work slow and if they need it by a certain day to let me know! Also yes, drawing and doing things you want to do is a lot easier than being commissioned. Good luck working on those!

AAAAAAAAAAWESSSOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMEE. That is... freaking beautiful. I mean, come on. That's your FIRST drawing of a dragon? I officially hate you.

 

(Not really, though. This is spectacular.)

ASJKFJSNFSJGNDKJBSKJFBSJKG!!! OOOOAAAAH! Oh my goodness! Ah! STOP THAT! Can I please... pleeeeease marry your painting? PLEASE? The lighting! The coloring! The everything! How are you even human? HOW? The whole painting looks like it's about to come to life and don't even get my started on that dragon! The detail! In case you didn't notice, I'm suffering a minor heart attack over here!
Also could you please try to get that voice out of my head? It's really distracting and it's giving me inappropriate thoughts...

It's too late! If these are to be my last moments they are filled with happiness and joy and... Okay, this is getting too emotional! :'D
Seriously, it's brilliant! You know I love all of your paintings but THIS ONE is beyond words! There is nothing wrong with it! The center looks a little blurry but that only draws more attention to the dragon. I can't get enough of the details!
:iconsweethugplz:

I'm going to see the movie again with my parents but it'll be in German and I don't know whether to cry about it or be relieved... :'D The sounds I made when I saw it the first time were absolutely inhuman! "It's just a dragon! It's just a dragon! It's just a-... DAMN YOU, CUMBERBATCH! DAMN YOU AND YOUR VOICE!"
