Esgaroth or Lake town: The Hobbit:

The town is constructed entirely of wood and stands upon wooden pillars sunk into the bed of the Long Lake, south of the Lonely Mountain and east of Mirkwood.

In the year 2941 of the Third Age the town was attacked destroyed by the dragon Smaug,

Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died. Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl.

" You think you can deceive me, Barrel-Rider? You have come from Lake Town! This is some sort of scheme hatched between these filthy dwarves and those miserable tub-trading Lakemen, those snivelling cowards with their Longbows and Black Arrows! Perhaps it is time I paid them a visit!"

Had this as a desktop on a computer that died, very glad to know who the artist was now.  Wonderful work, thank you for sharing it!

This is totally AMAZING!!!
Just when you think you escaped!

The detail is awesome, from the mountain, to the fire, to the dragon's flight characteristics, to the hopeless exhaustion of the survivors and the curling wave.

Well deserved DD!
So did you base Smaug’s design off a Chromatic Red Dragon from Dungeons and Dragons?
I just found this amazing piece - is it available for purchase as a print?
May I use this in a project? I'm learning how to do 2.5 D Parallax and this would be a great piece to work with. It would be 100% non commercial, just for my own portfolio, and I will credit you anywhere that I use it. 
I would love to buy this as a print!

Someone used it in a video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=s7vGiQ… and didn't put a link back as far as I can see... :(

Awesome artwork! You should consider watermarking though :P
