The caption that goes below this painting when it is finished will be “you have nice manners for a thief and a liar”. I am very disappointed that I was unable to finish by release day :(. My desktop PC was crashing after a few minutes of turning on. I think its over heating. I will probably need to crack it open and replace a fan if that is what it is. I haven’t run a diagnostic so I’m not sure. But regardless, I was unable to work on this. Thank goodness I worked on the color study for my commission first. Updates are : I made Smaug bigger. I refined Bilbo’s,Thorin’s, and Smaug’s face. Added a cast shadow. I can’t believe it took me a hour to do this. I must need more coffee 😀 Although I have a great reference for Cumberbatch’s face, I need so see how his wings and tail are before working on them. So I will need to rent the movie soon.
Time spend on this piece: 3 hours so far.
