Very nice picture!

Just one question: I made a cover of the song "I See Fire" and want to upload it on my youtube-chanel and I'm searching for a picture to underlie the music. My I use this picture of you? Sure I'll credit you. ;) (Wink)

Greetings Nithril

when I saw this I thought in my head..

Smaug: "Oh, no you don't! I'll blow your freaking head OFF!"

Bilbo: S***!

Yeah. In fact, the guy that developed the concept for smaug thinks that dragons with 4 legs and two wings are not realistic and that a two-legged dragon (which, as you said, is not a dragon, but a wyvern) is better. Lol

it dose look more realistic than 4 legs and in nature a wyvern like design would be more effective looking at bats and birds

Maybe, but if it's supposed to be a dragon, make it one, not a wyvern. you know what I mean?

technically wyverns are dragons but they more green land and Scandinavia, what we usually think when we think dragon is the European breed four legs two wings lots of fire

According to Wikipedia, wyverns aren't dragons. They might be wrong, but... whatever, it doesn't really matter.

by all technicality there are multiple things called a wyvern and or a dragon plus wikipedia tends to miss things either way smaug was bad ass and look extremely natural in the environment

If you actually read Tolkeins biographical descriptions of Smaug, he is described as being 'a large snake like beast rather than a dragon as we know them today' and in Tolkeins SOLE piece of art shown for smaug, his forelegs are ridiculously withered anyways

Yeah, smaug was pretty awesome looking. As soon as I got home from the movie I wanted to sketch him. Do you know where I can find his body concept art or something to use as a reference? That would be much appreciated, as I've looked around and only found head concept art from the movie...

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. Smaug is a dragon, not a wyvern, good job on the fur though.

"There he lay, a vast red-golden dragon, fast asleep; thrumming came from his jaws and nostrils, and wisps of smoke, but his fires were low in slumber. Beneath him, under all his limbs and his huge coiled tail, and about him on all sides stretching away across the unseen floors, lay countless piles of precious things, gold wrought and unwrought, gems and jewels, and silver red-stained in the ruddy light. Smaug lay, with wings folded like an immeasurable bat, turned partly on one side, so that the hobbit could see his underparts and his long pale belly crusted with gems and fragments of gold from his long lying on his costly bed."

I bid you a good day.

I thought they just described Smaug as a red dragon with an underside armored with jewels and gold...
