Smaug And The Thief by AndyFairhurst Smaug And The Thief by AndyFairhurst
"Truly songs and tales fall utterly short of the reality, O Smaug the chiefest and Greatest of Calamities," replied Bilbo.
"You have nice manners for a thief and a liar." said the dragon.

The Hobbit.

I tried to imply that Bilbo was invisible but not sure that it has worked.

Painted in photoshop CS2

Thanks for looking

PS* The invisibility part was/is a problem. I can't have Bilbo totally invisible because there would just be a dragon on its own. I wanted to show Bilbo even though he is invisible for several reasons...Smaugs sense of scale for one.

Totally fascinated with the way Smaug is represented, I love dragons in all its ways, I wanted to know if I could use this piece of art as an avatar of a new DA page I´m about to open, I would give you full credit obviously, I am a graphic designer, and the theme in my website is dragons, you might want to check it out. www.dracopublicidad.com

I really like the way you designed his head, and he looks very scary. Have you thought about making more art of this same design? I would love to see how he looks from other angles and positions.

Not of the same design but I'd like to do more dragons, possible in the same style

Wow, this is absolutely fantastic. I'm just scrolling through all the different ones and I have to concur, this really is one of the best ones yet. The detail is fantastic and you really get a sense of Smaug's greatness in this. A great piece of work, this must have taken you a while and it shows :D

This is fantastic. Let me say that I greatly prefer your depiction of Smaug much more than the current Hollywood depiction of him... I JUST watched the movie and I find your version ABSOLUTELY stunning! Oh goodness I'm in love with this!! Beautiful job! :heart: Much more fearsome than the Smaug in the movie... I love it
