or The Last Fire Drake From The North

Painting Process Video :

About The Painting: It is one of my Tolkien inspired series. This one in particular is inspired by Smaug from The Hobbit. I always loved dragons, but a dragon with a personality...YES PLEASE!!!! I really liked the character. This is just an inspired painting, as I imagined a fierce, greedy, treasure hoarding, intelligent and proud dragon would growl at you if you ever step into his lair...he would growl "You are in my lair.....THIEF!"

I will upload this painting along with other paintings, WIPs and Tutorials on my instagram account: @jiasenart

This is my first painting on Krita ~ a free digital painting software, also I made my first video based on Krita painting. So I am still learning the software. So far I found it's very comfortable to use. I will post some tutorials later, once I am enough familiar with the software.

Krita Site:

I first came to know about this software on one of the art videos on youtube. It seemed pretty cool software. So I tried it out.

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

While the foreshortening/perspective could use a bit of work (it's a bit hard to grasp the full depth of the Drake), and maybe some more work could be done with the design of the smoke, or fog, or mist (I assume smoke, since Fire drake and all), I do like the design of the Drake itself. It speaks of a creature or being that is clearly unfriendly and not too keen to trust whoever it comes across.
Also, dragons be cool.

Thanks for your comment...but there should not be much foreshortening in this case as there's not a huge distance between the head and the body(which could create such visual difference)...nor the dragon has long neck to create the distance...obviously if you are looking at it from a point of view of a generic dragon design, you will have a misconception as it's an unique for the smoke..I prefer to keep additional details in such cases simple, to keep the viewer's focus on the main is already a full image with little negative space...adding more work would make it look crowded...that's my thought behind creating this piece. Of-course every artist has their own point of view. Thanks for dropping by :)
