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!

This is absolutely amazing, it's a perfect representation of Smaug. Your right about Smaug, so realistic and Benedict Cumberbatch was brilliant. Can't wait to see him again on Wednesday when I see a triple bill of the three Hobbit films at the Cinema. Could you possibly make this available as a print? Cause this is one of the best artworks of Smaug I've seen.

Sadly, I was actually majorly disapointed in it, coming from loving the LotR films and liked the Hobbit book. Bilbo was an excellent role played, and Smaugs animations and voice was great, his design was quite terrible though, its not even a dragon there :| The films writing was weird to say the least too, and the fightingscenes just over the top in a bad way.
