Quick sketch of an idea for what I want. Doing this one traditionally to start off with and then be transferring over to a digital piece. I aim to get a movie promo poster feel to this where the image feels dark and gritty with an aspect of excitement maybe? With what I aim to do do you think it would be a beginners entry or Open entry?

Thanks for your feedback.

Just got my first drawing tablet, know I'm a crappy draw-er, but figured what-the-heck doesn't hurt to try. So here's my day one rough sketch.

Nope, you can enter the beginner category if you want though.

Changed direction. This is my Challenge of the month. Next step is to do the line work or go straight to Colouring in.
The piece is called "The Protector."

I love this idea. The surrounding and the Eye of Saudon looks like it fits in too.

No way near finished as you can tell. But I have scrapped the line work completely and I am now going straight to colouring in and toning the image. I hope I can get it all to fit perfectly well with each other as this is my first competition I have entered.

Now the question is, which catagory should I be entering?

I'm so super nervous! I've never entered a contest before!

In all honestly, I'm not familiar with LOTR, but Harry Potter is something I absolutely -adore-! So I hope this sketch shows my attempt at Smaug the dragon, who still needs a lot of work lmao. I'm not sure if I should add Ron and Hermione or if I should just have Harry vs Smaug. Thanks for looking!

update ;) i did some canvas flips and tweaked the proportions of harry a bit, still needs more work but i used black lines to help push the flames forward in front of the orb and i added some partical effects. any ideas on how to improve would be nice.
