DD Edit: Thank you :iconjcbarquet: for the DD recommendation! Sorry if I don't get back to all of you but thank you for all you comments and support!

Itís probably not as awesome looking as Lake Town will be in the movie when it comes out but Iím pretty happy with the results. The Hobbit is one of my most favorite stories and I couldn't help but attend Gnomonís challenge this month of Esgaroth. I also felt this would give me a good chance to practice some matte painting too. I thought the Lonely Mountain would make a cool background element and you can also catch a glimpse of Smaug coming to visit Lake Town.

The suggester says, "A beautiful depiction of one of Tolkien's locations, I'm completely amazed by this picture. Viewing it in full-size immediately lets you feel immersed in this atmospheric and highly-detailed fantasy world. An absolute delight to the eye."

I think this may be the best digital painting I've ever seen. Have you ever done any tutorial videos? I'd love to see how you approach something like this.

Just saw The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug last night. I have to admit, your Lake Town is almost spot-on with the movie. You can rest assured this piece is just as awesome as it looked in the movie. Well done!

Thank you! I just saw it too and was really happy to see the similarities. I spoke with a few of the concept artists that worked on it at SDCC and told me they actually had my Smurf up in their workshop. Maybe they actually did take some design cues from my Laketown too, who knows? Either way, it turned out amazing!

Thank you :) I just use Photoshop. I just takes time and practice and you'll get there. It's just like any other medium, keep using it until you understand it well enough to do what you want with it.

I use a Cintiq tablet and various brushes. Some are default, some I've made and some I've taken from various artists.

How do you even start to draw a scene like this, do you just draw it or do you have some kind of construction lines? I really like this art style and i know i wont be able to do it without years of experience and practice but are there any tutorials that you know of or any tips you can give please?
thanks

I usually block things out roughly just to get a decent composition. Do some batches of environmental thumbnails and then run with the one you like most. Make sure to do research and use reference.
