Smaug Painted Portrait by benke33
Smaug Painted Portrait
36"x18", acrylic on canvas
Got the big boy wrapped up this morning. This is the largest and most complicated painting I've done this year (19 days - 140-170 hours). Felt like tossing it at some points but I'm really pleased with it and it's very rewarding to get these large pieces through what is at times a very frustrating process. I will have prints available at a few sizes and the original is available. Drop me a line if interested and thanks for being patient through the piece:)

Smaug Painting work in progress by benke33
Smaug Painting work in progress
About 7-8 hours of progress on Smaug today, the painting scares the bejesus out of me so started by blocking in the darkest areas to reinforce the forms in the drawing to get the process started. Pop can is just there for scale… that would just be bad idea normally… the painting is 36"x18"
This is the last week for the 40% OFF original art sale (ends Sunday Aug. 31st.). You can get in touch with me here or at for all inquiries. If you have been considering any pieces or looking for a unique gift check out the links below. Thanks to everybody for the continued support.
