After a great character in literature gets slapped with a design in a big budget motion picture, it gets harder to see that character in any other way. Since there is a new feature underway based on Tolkien's Hobbit (one of my favorite books), I wanted to create my own interpretation of the dragon "Smaug" before another illustrator's fully fleshed out CGI monster could alter any vision I might have had. I don't want to look back and wonder "What would I have done?" Anyhow, this is my shot at it. Hopefully there will be a body design to come in the near future.
