So many layers.... so many hours... *dies*
Worth every second? YES!

My tribute to The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. A MAGNIFICENT movie! And seriously, Smaug is the star of the show. Benedict Cumberbatch's voice.... AND facial/body movements.... seriously could you ask for more?! HE WAS PERFECT. The most perfect dragon film has ever seen, yes I dare say it, he beat Draco (at least for me, which says a lot). 

If you haven't seen this movie, GO SEE IT. You will not be disappointed. ;)

I was overly picky in my depiction of Smaug. Those who saw my WIP  on my Facebook saw I struggled back and forth all over the place finding accurate references to paint him. Being that the movie isn't out yet on DVD, I don't have screen shots, only little snippits of gif sets that people (thankfully) captures from inside the theater. Their illegal footage was my gateway to painting him! Haha!

Awesome! I love the lighting on his belly. And great work on the details, of the scales and gold. I also love the colouring and shading.

Wow! You've gotten even better over these past two years (well duh I should have figured that). It looks fantastic! Wonder when I'll get to see the Hobbit not I'm back.
