Which also inspired The Gold Hall of Theoden (Edoras) in Lord of the Rings

There is seriously a bar here in my hometown of the same name that is entirely Nordic themed with a huge wooden dragon named Grendel weaving between the exposed wooden support beams on the ceiling.

I added some soap opera histrionics of my own that don't appear in the poem.

Very impressive depiction. Just the right sense of bleak nobility. Will have this image in mind from now on, as I read.

Absolutely stunning and beautiful! This is a Beowulf interpretation with so much cold bleakness and desperation behind, it touches the soul like an icy swordblade!
This should be on the cover of the next paperbook edition. Well done!

Though I know the basic premise of the story (thank you ENglish class), I haven't read the story itself yet. Evenso, this looks spectacularly awesome! Also, fave.
Question: what exactly are the technical wiggles that make you wince?

This is one of those earlier pictures that now elicits a slight wince when I see it. Just technical niggles that aren't quite as prevalent in my later stuff. But it still bugs me a bit. Glad it made the right impression none the less. :)

Amazing piece! I talked about "Beowulf" in my final exam at university, actually, so it's a story dear to my heart. I think you pretty much captured the mead-hall perfectly.

Thanks! I once saw Julian Glover (pre-eminent British character actor) reciting Beowulf in an authentic Norse meadhall. His audience were the members of the historical society who built it, dressed in period costume! Truly spellbinding.

I'm more of a Wotan man myself, but I'll let that pass. :) Well no, I guess it does have all the hallmarks of a speedpainting, but it actually took me more than a couple of hours to qualify as a speedpainting.

Is that close :O I've never been good at geography and Asia is kinda lost to me - I know where India, China, Japan is and I've been to HongKong & Macao but that's about it :) But I love Far East architechure with those bent roofs, pillars and wooden structures.
