This is my attempt at Smaug. No he isn't perched upon the Lonely Mountain just in case any Hobbit experts point that out :D it is just some rocky rock thing.

Painted in Photoshop CS2 and a Whackit Intuos

Thanks for looking

WIP - [link]

P.S For those who haven't read the book, Smaug had a belly encrusted with treasure which made him indestructible, or so he thought, because on his left breast was a bare patch which became his Achilles heel. Bard the Bowman shot an arrow at this patch and killed the cocky dragon.
So the jewels on his chest/belly are not my idea :D Smaug wouldn't be Smaug without them.

I really love this rendition of Smaug.  Too many people leave out his jewel encrusted belly, so thanks for keeping that <3

Awesome job. I read the book a long time ago and didn't remember the jewel thing. I have to re-read it sometime.
AndyFairhurst's avatar
Yeah he was encrusted with jewels from lying on his treasure for so long...if I remember correctly

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.

Where in the book does it describe this way?

Smaug the Awesome...Smaug the Mean....Smaug the Destroyer.....Smaug the Magnificent....SMAG THE BIG FAT DRAGON WHO DOES NOTHING BUT SIT AND GLOAT ABOUT HIS TREASURE. Yeesh.




P.S: My cat fits the description of Smaug.

My cat sleeps and attacks me when I walk past her and not much else.
