theGoldenHearts by ArtKosh theGoldenHearts by ArtKosh
In their hearts there is a gleam of cold stone,

Their souls are filled with the greatness of power,

Their bodies were burned in the flames of gold.

***
I adore the dragons! 

especially, The Dragon.

paper, watercolour,

and one of the offical poster of 'the Hobbit' as ref

and Tryo music

it was painting before the Desolation of Smaug movie,
so the dragon was by my own design ~6h

Amazing work! The colours, the composition... And I really like this version of Smaug, it reminds me of the illustrations Alan Lee did for the book, and I sure prefer a looot that dragon rather than the movie one!

thanks! I also love the illustrations of Alan Lee! That book "the Hobbit" with Smaug on cover is favourite on my bookshelf! and it was some kind of inspiration for this pic as well! :D :sun:

Beautiful! Love the idea of bringing Thorin and Smaug together based on their lust for gold.

Wow, it would have been really impressive as a digital art or with pencils, but with watercolour? It's absolutly amazing.
Is the picture really very big or do you have thiiiiiiis fine brushes? (And how the hell did you then get them to do what you want? xD)

Aww...well, if you ask me, I think it's a perfect acceptable reason to lose a porcentage of brain matter, and even end up in a commatose state, because this is amazing.  I even lost a bit of my brain too and even some drool in the process. I have fallen in a state of profound admiration XD

This work is utterly amazing, I am completely in love. The colors and lighting and the comparison between the two! I was actually wondering if I may be able to use this (with tons of credit of course!) in a graphic for a fanfic I'll be posting soon? Totally understand if not.
