You made it so mysterious, as it weren't real. Like a dream in a very deep sleep. Very nice!

This is a really stunning rendition of the scene. I agree with Dulliros about Nienor being barely noticeable, but that it's fitting this way. You really get the scale of the immensity of this great but terrible beast, and the insignificance of mortals when put beside him. Turin really did well to slay this creature - and this speaks to me very much in this rendition of '... the Golden'. Beautiful, as ever :clap:!!

Thank you so much! I am really glad you've enjoyed it, it's  always a pleasure and an honor to read your thought about :hug:  This is a difficult scene of the book to illustrate, in my opinion, there are many beautiful interpretations of the theme around. I  wanted to focus the attention especially on the dragon, Nienor is also a fascinating character but, I think, to draw her individually maybe in the next future ;)

Thanks  again for +fav !! :tighthug:

Now that's a different kind of dragon! I like the long beak-like head and he really has that sly deceitful look on his face that fits Glaurung.
I only discovered Nienor at second glance, but that's the way it's supposed to be. Glaurung clearly is the master of this scene.

Thanks  a  lot  for  your  kind  words! !  I am  really  glad  you've  enjoyed  it!!
It's  true,  my depictions  of  the  dragons are quite different, I often depict a dragon as a kind of chimera ;) And in this scene I wanted Glaurung as protagonist and I  am  very  happy  that he looks as deceiver because it  is what I  wanted  transmit :)

Love the softness of the piece! So when you do these do you only use sepia tones?

why the glaurung is white?
Reply
:iconbrunild:
Brunild Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2015   Traditional Artist
In fact he is Golden but using only two color tones, I understand that it seems white. I wanted the dragon emerged from the dark background and I used a shade maybe a little 'too light. I like to use this effect in some scenes because it gives a feeling of timelessness :)
