Thank you. :)

I can tell you have a great imagination, if your journal is anything to go by. ;)

Llamas kinda started as an April Fool's joke, and they caught on with the community. Most people offer 1 point for them, but I've seen offers of up to 4 points each. There's not much else to it, though. :P They're just for fun.

This would be an awesome representation of Ancalagon the Black from Tolkien's book the Silmarillion. If you saw Smaug from the Hobbit movie, the book says Ancalagon is bigger and badder then Smaug. Great job.

Very well done! Tell me, what's your process like? I'm into digital art as well but I'm fairly new to the medium and I'm always looking for tips on how to do paintings in PHotoshop/GIMP.

Thank you! :D

Always, always, always start out with two separate layers...one for your background and one for your line art. I learned that the hard way. :P My line art is made with the paintbrush tool, using a hard brush at a very small size. I sketch pretty rapidly and with large motions first. Then, after I'm satisfied with the general shape, I lower the opacity of the first line art layer to about 30% and make a new layer on top of that, where I then refine the sketch.

After refining the sketch, I delete the first line art layer and start coloring. I make a new layer below the line art and above the background, choose a base color, and start painting the figure with a large hard brush. I usually go "out of line" (it's not really, because you are on a separate layer) and then go back and erase the excess color. After that, I shade basic shadows and highlights on that same layer with a "soft" brush (one with fuzzy/faded edges). At this point, I usually lower the opacity of the line art to 30% and merge that layer down with the base color.

After that, it's pretty much adding details from there. For this particular piece, it was just a matter of building up dark and light blue-grey and charcoal colors on top of each other.

I'm fond of using a fuzzy brush for everything - I guess you could call that an "airbrushing" style. I'm trying to get in the habit of using more varied brushes, though, for added texture. I also use photo - or in this case, screenshot - references whenever I can.

Let me know if you have more questions, and I'll be happy to answer them. :)
