Yep, I'm in college, are you? and ah yea, photoshop can change quite a bit with each version.  But photoshop just takes practice, once you get the hang of it, it can be pretty easy.  :)

was this done in photoshop? I've always wanted to be able to use it but I find it very difficult, this is just amazing! I love all of your Smaug pieces. I've drawn him a few times for college because I just love the hobbit and him! :)

yep, this was all done in photoshop with a handrawn sketch as an overlay.  Yea, it took me a while to get used to photoshop, it can be weird sometimes, but thank you! Same here, I basically went through a craze recently of drawing him and modelling him after I saw the newest Hobbit trailer haha

Yeah :D I did it after I read the book. But after I watched the movie I drew thorin Oaken Shield, I think they made him a bit nicer in the film haha :D sadly Thorin is really bad quality photo so he just looks like a blur, I'm going to have to scan him in :D I love how you even put the gold in his chest :D Ah it's just so great!

Yea I saw the drawing of Thorin, I thought it was really good! A quick scan will definitely help bring out some of the details and yea I almost forgot about the gold and added that in last minute haha

The pines were roaring on the heights,
The wind was moaning in the night,
The fire was red, it flaming spread,
The trees like torches blazed with light.  

The bells were ringing in the dale,
And men looked up with faces pale.
The dragon's ire, more fierce than fire,
Laid low their towers and houses frail.

The mountain smoked beneath the moon.
The dwarves, they heard the tramp of doom.
They fled the hall to dying fall
Beneath his feet, beneath the moon.
