    Fall of Gondolin

    Here's a new one from the past couple of days...channeling that Tolkien inspiration! I also have a related post on this piece on Muddy Colors Blog : Studio Wormholes and what happens when they appear, changing the speed of time and creation of art in the studio. Enjoy!

    Very nice! I'd like to see it fully rendered with color and texture...

    Bumping this in appreciation. I love it. Really loose and expressive, and the dragon puts me in mind of John Howe a little.

    Beautiful work. Thanks for sharing.

    Great! Someone remembered Tolkien's dragons were accompanied by a foul smoke....just finished the chapter introducing Smaug in The Hobbit last night. I do hope you make this into a painting.

    Thanks for posting Donato. Great sense of light... with just a few grains of chalk. Marvelous.

    Lovely graphic style. The details in the dragons flesh is great and I love the wispy smoke (I think it's smoke) in the background. Great work!
