So... Smaug the Magnificent! The Terrible... The Stupendous... The King under the Mountain... etc., etc... In other words, another dragon.
This one is a bit larger than my other dragon paintings, A3. And I tried some gold acrylic.

Not a bad piece.
I love how you drew Smaug's head, getting the dimensions of it and his face pretty well, and you quite recaptured the malevolence and ferocity of his face from the films. I also love the piercing bright-yellow colour of Smaug's eye here, together with the illumination-like light tones around his eye, it looks very hypnotic. I also love the detail on Smaug's serrated-looking spines on his neck and how orderly and like blades they appear, and the way you have Smaug's tail looking faraway in shadow and distant from its vast length fits the films and Smaug's sense of scale. I also really appreciate and love the gorgeous details of Smaug's wings you went into recapturing. I quite like the gorgeous gold acrylic and the pinkish-red paint you used on Smaug, as your painting style with this picture gives it quite a unique and classic-painting look and feel. The greyish colours and background hall-shapes in the top half of the picture also have a very Peter-Jackson's-LOTR-films Moria feel to them.
Some constructive criticisms I have are: Smaug's visible underbelly to the right of his head looks quite out of place, breaking the effect that Smaug's wings look different-sized and his neck from a 2D in-front perspective looks short because the rest of Smaug's body is stretching into the distance behind his head and left wing such is his vast size.
