Smaug by einen Smaug by einen
For CHOW#117 - Smaug at Conceptart.org.

I suppose most people know who Smaug is, but for those of you who don't he's the dragon in The Hobbit. I don't really know if I caught his character at all, but I did kind of rush it. It's safe to say I'll never draw anything on a heap of gold again.

Made in Photoshop CS2.

Awesome! The books says that he radiates heat and he's literally glowing. I think you captured that really well. :D It looks like he's hugging his pile of gold XD

Nice!  I especially love the glow that Smaug gives and which seems reflected off his mound of gold.  And his expression is just scary!  I wouldn't want to be alone in his lair with him. O.O

no, not Smaug, I will complain to all Smaug "artists" he is lion faced, furry cheeks and fur down his spin, missing a scale on his chest, VERY red, cat eared and has an under bite.

I dunno, man, this Smaug's got quite an under bite, is very red, and the part of his chest where the scale is missing is not showing so that seems irrelevant.

That sounds like a very valuable use of your time. I liked the part where you subtly implied that I'm not a real artist for not drawing Smaug the way you like him.

I AM SMAUG! My armor is like ten full shields. My teeth are like swords. My claws SPEARS. The shock of my tail A THUNDERBOLT! My wings a HURRICANE. And my breath DEATH.
