DOWNLOAD FOR FULL SIZE DETAIL!

Kind of obsessed with Smaug right now. :) He's such a cool looking dragon!!! 

I didn't want to be too detailed with him, kept the colors soft and simple. Again, using as many screen shots and clips of him from the movie, here's as accurately as I can depict him (before we can finally get hi-res images from the blu-ray). Love his huge talon hands, love his feet, his long serpent like neck, and love how ridiculously long his tail is! :heart: I should have made his wings a bit bigger, but I didn't want to cover up his body.

Anyways, enjoy! May put the line art part up for free coloring later. :)

I like the wings, but I think the tail isn't right.
But it's very very pretty!

This looks awesome I like how they portrayed Smaug as a wyvern ( Tow legged dragon creature) instead of the common four legged dragon. This captures Slaughter from the movie perfectly. By the way if you draw Thorin from the movie except with a forked beard but have Thorin still recognizable.

The is a video by Weta Digital about creating Smaug. There are a few images of him in good detail with the coloring. Great work by the way.

Yah I saw it! Sure would have been nifty before I drew this, but I think I did pretty good with the references I had at the time!
