 This is brilliant work. Nienor looks utterly hypnotized, completely lost. It's like the fog is emanating from the dragon!

I have used this in a post I did on "Of Túrin Turambar." Hope that's OK.

I love how you made Glaurung. Truly he looks like the father of dragons. And Nienor looks so lost and bereft. I have seen a lot of Tolkien art, and this is one of the best.

It's amazing, but Nienor was blonde. Turin thought she had her mother's hair, but she looked more like their father Hurin.

Actually, he's right, Nienor, Turin's sister, "was tall, and her eyes were blue, her hair fine gold, the very likeness in woman's form of Húrin her father."

You're thinking of his sister. Nienor was the elf maiden who loved him.

Okay, I'm going to blame lack of sleep for this one.  I was thinking, "Niniel was blonde.  The elf girl was the one w/dark hair."  Due to the excuse listed above, I mixed up the name Finduilas with Nienor.  Wow.  Fail on so many levels.

J.R.R. Tolkien's "Children of Hurin"

Is that a sub story of the lord of the rings universe? sorry not the biggest follower

If I remember correctly, it takes place "in the land beyond the Gray Havens" during the First Age, as opposed to LOTR's Third Age timeline.
I've been told Children of Hurin is also touched upon in The Silmarillion, though I don't know by how much since I haven't read that one yet.

In short, yes, Children of Hurin is part of the LOTR universe, just in a different location and much earlier timeframe.

That is AWESOMELY creepy.

The use of perspective and atmospheric perspective (the mist) gives this a level of realism that sends a chill up my spine. As if I'd been on a walk in the woods on a misty morning and just happened to stumble by this.

Severely creeped out, in the best possible (OMG! It's a dragon!) way.
