Smaug by nostromo8 Smaug by nostromo8
a pretty nice sketch of the dragon Smaug... appearing in J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Hobbit"... this is the way I see him. What do you guys think?

At last, I've caught up to this piece. The pencil/ebony style does a fine job of making him look ragged, brutish, and intimidating while still keeping that perfect draco majesty. Well done.

Wow, that's awesome! I love dragons, and especially Smaug. I don't care if he's evil, I love him!!!:P Very nice, I love the details:) I only think the neck should be a little longer:)

Very nice rendition of Smaug. Though I always imagined the neck being longer since I believe Tolkien described him has a "long worm."

Nice!

It's a little reminiscent of Vermithrax, from "Dragonslayer." Yes?

I like the powerful musculature in the neck, which has a dino feel.

The thing is, "The Hobbit" was written with a lighter tone than the LOTR trilogy, much like a children's tale. As such, I'm more able to overlook talking spiders and dragons. But I dread seeing this in a film, after the epic success of the more subdued Peter Jackson translation. I hated "Dragonheart" for this reason, among others. And unfortunately, Smaug has an awful lot of dialogue, some of it rather interesting.

That is -fantastic-. You've captured Smaug's character. You should definitely consider making a full drawing of him!
