“IT’S ONLY FOREVER, NOT LONG AT ALL”



 
I’m on a magical quest to make a Labyrinth painting that I am happy with!

Also, this little exercise tracks how much growth I’ve had as an artist; to essentially, see if I’m any good at this at all.

So, I obsessively redrawing things I thought was lacking at the time, and make side-by-side comparisons all for the sake of learning.

As for this painting, I’m overall happy with it.  However, I think I missed the mark on the portrait.

This means, sometime in the future, I will make another one.

O SMAUG THE TREMENDOUS



“Very well, O Barrel-rider.”

Well, after seeing all of “the Hobbit” movies, I can say I generally enjoyed the series if films.

Yes, I agree with some of the shortcomings that are widely criticized. But there are so truly neat moments.

For one, Peter Jackson nailed the memorable scenes from the book that I could recall from the book. Bilbo Baggins, the intro to the dwarves, the Goblin King, Riddles in the Dark, and Smaug!!!

It’s just the stuff that is in between that are a little rickety.

However, I delighted in sitting through the journey, there and back again.
