The dragon and the stick salesman (NYP demo) by sandara The dragon and the stick salesman (NYP demo) by sandara
This was my demo for the NYP students. It was about 2 hours, with an additional 1/2 hr touch up afterwards.

My thanks to the NYP students; you were a great audience and I hope the talk was of some help and inspiration to you guys. :)

The stick salesman - you know, that little guy holding a stick in a lot of environment concepts/illustrations.

"You DARE to come to sell STICKS to me!?" The Dragon roared and took into the air as the tiny salesman ran for his dear life...

I think the image would have more impact without the two characters.

You inspired me to keep improving my drawings. Sitting in the lecture theatre and watching you explain while drawing just blows my mind, because you can make such a beautiful scene in just around 2 hours. It tells me how time and practice can make such a big difference to one's drawing. I really enjoyed it! Thank you!

That looks like Ancalogon desecrating Gondor and going full speed ahead toward Aragorn after Legolas jokingly switched out his sword for a stick. Just an interpretation
