This movie was amazing! And, since I haven't done anything new in a while, I decided to try and draw my favorite part, which was Smaug.
Benedict Cumberbatch's voice was scary as hell, and it fit the dragon perfectly. I tried to make the dragon as similar as possible to the one in the movie, but my memory doesn't serve me that well + the only references I had were movie posters and trailers
But, I hope you guys like it the way it is.
Also, I would like to thank and for suggesting and featuring Daddy D for DD.
~And, of course, thanks to all of you for your comments and critics - they are all welcome!
Happy New Year!
Very detailed and amazing. Excellent work!
"Do you think flattery will keep you alive?"
"What about your little dwarf friends? Where are they hiding?"
"It's the gold. They are drawn to treasure like flies to dead flesh!"
"A darkness is coming, it will spread to every corner of the land."
"I kill where I wish, when I wish. My armour...is iron! No blade can pierce me!"
"My teeth are swords. My claws are spears. My wings...a hurricane!"
"You will take nothing from me, dwarf! I laid low your warriors of old. I intill terror in the hearts of men. I am king under the mountain!"
"I am fire! I am...death!
My favorite quotes from Smaug in the movie. Anyway, your picture is really cool! By the way, if you want better references, check Smaug's page on The Lord of the Rings Wiki .
He looks pretty damn close to what he did in the movie! I'm impressed! I tried doodling him but I too found a decisive lack of references -_-
I liked how they put Smaug with a two-legged body type instead of four; it makes him seem more snakelike.
