Next painting up..." Waiting For Mr. Baggins" [In reply to] Can't Post

           










I wanted to suggest a scene that while Bilbo oversleeps in Bag End, the dwarves ( and a certian smoke ring wizard) are packing up their supplies in front of The Green Dragon at dawn. As always I hope you like it and any suggestions are welcome.
I have also closeups of the painting here http://s773.photobucket.com/albums/yy16/michaelg04/ if you care to look. Thanks again for your interest in these worrks guys. On to the next painting :)

Another brilliant painting [In reply to] Can't Post

Thanks for sharing another brilliant painting of yours demanon. I particuarly like the background of the painting - very Shire-like!

Only one slight comment (and what do I know after all), the perspective on the building seems a bit odd. It might just be me - I think it is just how you have made the door on a different level to the left side of the building which is tricking my eyes! Smile

Brilliant though! What is your next project? Also, what size are these paitings, and how long do they take to plan & paint?

Thank You !! [In reply to] Can't Post

It hard to tell from the pic ( blackberry ) but the left side to the door is actually jutting out in an L formation.Gandalf is resting his back up against that wall blowing smoke rings. the original has more color value that the pic is not showing so its kinda hard to tell the seperation. Its Oil on canvas 24" by 36" and took me one week after work ( and a weekend to finish). thank you again for liking my works. If you have a suggestion of a scene from The Hobbit I would love to give it a shot. Cheers

I haven't named him [In reply to] Can't Post

or the others yet. There are six of the 13 dwarves outside on the road. The others are warming themselves by the fire inside The Green Dragon enjoying a last mug of fine hobbit ale before their long journey.The night clerk at the inn wasnt too happy about rolling up a fresh keg from the pantry at sun up by the way. Hey , since you were the first to respond, would you help me out and deciding for me who would be outside in this situation? I would appreciate it alot

My first though was Balin [In reply to] Can't Post

When I first saw this little fellow I thought of Balin - he seems the type to make sure everything is prepared before they set off. If you want to stay true to the book, it could be Dwalin, as he has a green cloak on (at least, it looks green to me!)

As for future suggestions, what might be nice (being bias just because I like you Dwarves Wink) is them huddled inside the cave in the Misty Mountains with thunder and lightning outside? You could paint any scene though and it would be great! Real talent demanon Smile

The Calm Before the Storm [In reply to] Can't Post

DanielLB suggested the scene here. The dwarves, along with Gandalf and Bilbo, have found refuge from the elements outside. I did the scene in a "concept" painting form to get the size of the cave and lighing from the lightning and gandalf's staff right. Closeups of the painting can , as always, be found on this link http://s773.photobucket.com/albums/yy16/michaelg04/, you might even spot a Stone Giant or two in the closeups also :). Hope you like it.

Wow! Just wow! [In reply to] Can't Post

As ever demanon - this is stunning. I never really thought about the cave being that big, but it certainly works! Laugh

The lightning looks great - as does the lighting of the cave. Gandalf and the Dwarves look great! The trolls in the background also add a brilliant and special touch *tumbs way up*

Edit to add: I also find it astonishing you got it done so quickly!

I have to look into... [In reply to] Can't Post

the legalaties of selling prints of my painting refrencing JRR's, published works. Making money off of someone elses ideas is a big no no. I have seen artists sell their works based on a book or film however I do not know if they got permission to do so before acting. I wouldnt want to tick off the Tolkien family in any way. I am just happy displaying them here for you guys to be honest :)

Nice pics! I love 'em!

I have a quick question: Is this sub-forum where you would post fan-fics?

I haven't commented until now.... [In reply to] Can't Post

but I've been lurking and enjoying for some time now. You have a great deal of talent and I really like your take on the places and the characters. Please keep posting your work for us - I think it's some of the best fan art I've seen. Cool
