This picture really gives me chills. I don´t even know where to start. Your skills are incredible and there is no need to comment on the style and/or technique, as it is simply stunning and impeccable. But also the dreamlike atmosphere, the dragon and stars, it is simply magnificent. Wonderful piece of art.

Dumb question: I'm Googling the names of all the stars and constellations shown in your picture, and there are two I can't find mentioned on any of the Tolkien websites I've been to. It looks like they are called Alqua and Ra?

Lovely. I really like how you put the stars he named around his head, and the night sky coming out of the smoke of his pipe.

You also made him look very wise and fatherly/grandfatherly. That fits.

Ооо мне так нравится! А какой дракончик! Абсолютно шикарная идея!:raini:  И фон тоже, и ты будешь смеяться но и подпись))) Как одна из звезд)))
Reply
:iconkimberly80:
kimberly80 Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2014
ДА, про подпись я хихикаю)))случайно вышло))))
фоны, да вся моя тумба забита звездным небом и фотками космоса( не считая Ренди и белочек)
про драконов: а они вот напрашиваются...может это минисмауг)
у меня в детстве книжка про Средиземье была, Линда Гарленд иллюстрировала с супругом напару, вот у них были совершенно чудесные драконы, один был нарисован с их спаниэля, так, что думаю для этого нужно быть знакомым хоть как-то с анатомией животных....ну, что бы убедительно вышло, не мой короче случай)

Дракон однозначно мини-Смауг! От него такой теплый золотой свет, прямо хочется себе такого!)))
Увидеть в спаниэле дракона...)) Вот это  креатив и фантазия!

kimberly80 Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2014
ну, да, хорошо дракона могут нарисовать художники анималисты, все таки он хоть и волшебное создание, но животное, как-то косноязычно вышло...ну, смысл в анатомии животных, короче...
я а я вот к слову роясь в сети нашла иллюстратора, у которого мне очень нравится Ороме, нашедший эльдар, если интересно, вот ссыль, отличная акварель, чем-то Дженни Д напоминает...anke.edoras-art.de/anke_tolkie…

This picture is so great that it has left me speechless. I would love to see it as a cover for a book about the Professor himself.
