Flame of Udun

Share

This is a new version of a older picture (included below), which was one of the earlier digital paintings I´ve ever done. The scene is the same but this new version has a little different composition. Hopefully some progress is evident or...?iu_57069_5541376.jpg

always cool to see someone getting better! i like the new one more in regards of technique and how you played with the perspective and space, but the old one catches my eye easier and it gives the balrog the impact that it deserves and also the title being "light of udun", makes me feel like there should maybe be a greater focus on gandalfs holy light.

HappytoDraw responds:

Thanks for the input theguestquester! I’ll maybe do another piece which adresses your feedback. Thanks!

The details and the angle are definitely much better on the new version but I feel like too much of the painting is taken up by the giant rock. Maybe it would look better if it was slightly more closeup?

HappytoDraw responds:

Yeah you might be right Marckello. I wanted a sense of big scale to up the epic factor, so I threw in the mountain rock. The distant perspective serves the same purpose as with the rock described above. I do agree that the rock distracts the viewer a bit(it claims a little to much space). And yes, I’m a tad fond of drawing rocks also;) thanks for the constructive critique!
