More WIP to the Unimoose and his Inuit pal and wolvish friends. I'm still in the utter refining stages to this. Need to get all the details squared away before diving into the color version.
*sigh* One of these days I will be finishing this!!

Finished this after two days if piddling around with it. I still think the Man in Black is hot as hell and I wouldn't mind getting stuck on that island with him even in all his moody, broody, sulky, manipulative, I-want-to-kill-my-brother ways. Ahh... if only...

Just a little change of pace from what I have been working on. I need a break from it since it feels I keep slamming my head against a brick wall. So here you go. A little dragon blowing smoke rings. =p

Another update. Been working hard over the weekend to try and push this along. Didn't get nearly as far as I wanted to for one reason or another. I spent far too much heckling over minor elements that I SHOULD have done long before I started painting this. Tonal studies? NAH! Who needs those?! *facepalm* Lesson be learned. Technically, if I was smart, I'd scrap this and start it all over again and do it properly. I just hate to think I spent all this time working on something I believed would be my next portfolio piece, but it ended up getting chucked aside instead. Well... at this point, if I keep forging ahead and keep fussing with the project I might end up making a technically weaker piece than I originally wanted. I'm just pondering if there's anything salvageable at this point. :-/
I did, however, move those BG dragons over just a touch so they wouldn't lead the eyes off the page. :D Thanks Angela for the critique! :)

Right, so having stayed home for almost 3 days now due to illness (our boss so lovingly sent us home and doesn't want us there until we are better) this has allowed me time to sit and actually work on art.
This project was started a month ago as a sketch for a piece of fan fiction I've been reading over the past few years. This work, found at this link here, chronicles the adventures of two young girls and many other characters who are original creations to Tolkiens world. It's a little different, more dark, but also more developed in terms of having better, non-mary sue characters involved in the story. It's hard to come by a lot of good Tolkien fan fiction out there, and this one I've really enjoyed reading thus far.
Anyway, this character is Durraiz, an orcess who administers punishment to the Rohirric women who dared to try and flee from their captor slavers.
Here is a detail since the original might be on the smallish side:
About the Artist
- Meli Hitchcock
- I'm a chick that just likes to draw. I try hard to be a decent artist, but hey, no one's perfect. This blog is just a repository of various ideas, sketches, drawings, or work in progress images that I've done. Why read this silly description? Just look at the art! ;)
