SMAUG by moonxels SMAUG by moonxels
Well, this is my view of the famous dragon called Smaug, in The HOBBIT.
This was done just for the fun of it!

(please note that this is a fanart and have nothing to do with something official)

I like how you didn't just put him on coin but put some jewels and other valuables. plus the texture on him makes it look like he is becoming part of his treasure. glitzy shiny gold oh yes! shiny!

I am deeply impressed. I wish I could draw/sketch/paint a dragon even half as well as this. *applause* This is most excellent.
Just saw the second movie today...it was awesome...

They interpret Smaug a lot different from the movie to the book. I just saw the second Hobbit movie today (it came out in theaters today) and Smaug looks pretty much like this, he's grey and his horns aren't that big, but pretty close!

no, not Smaug, I will complain to all Smaug "artists" he is lion faced, furry cheeks and fur down his spin, missing a scale on his chest, VERY red, cat eared and has an under bite.

This beast will be more treacherous than any other foe ever faced in Middle Earth. If Bilbo and the others are going to beat him and get all that gold, they'll need some guns, VERY big guns. Here's hoping *raises glass of wine*
