SMAUG The Dragon from THE HOBBIT by GingerAnneLondon SMAUG The Dragon from THE HOBBIT by GingerAnneLondon
An Illustration I did of Smaug, the fierce dragon in The Hobbit series and book. I simply loved him so much, I had to paint him! I love his voice in the movie and his look. This was an exciting piece to work on. I really enjoyed painting it and I learned a lot from it. I found the movie to be dark so I wanted to add a colorful twist on it. I painted this fully in Photoshop CS6. For those who are interested in how I painted this piece from start to finish, you can watch my speed painting on my youtube channel where I have many other speed paintings to enjoy.

I remember seeing this movie on cinema I was hyped and the wait was totally worth it! This art gives me back that feeling. This art is wonderful!

"I am almost tempted to let you take it, if only to see Oakenshield suffer, watch it destroy him, watch it corrupt his heart and drive him mad... But I think not. I think our little game ends here! So tell me, thief, how would you choose to die?"

Smaug is really the most awesome and well-made dragon in the life-action movies history.
This artwork is also cool.

Oh God, I certainly don't want to switch places with Bilbo right now!
One of the most incredible pictures of Smaug and Bilbo I have seen on here!
Outstanding work you have done here!

The detail level is incredible and Smaug looks like he's about to lunge out from the picture!  Amazing work!
