Smaug the magnificent by Strecno Smaug the magnificent by Strecno
...it's an old colored sketch (which I really don't like anymore) form J.R.R. Tolkien book “The Hobbit”

Smaug the Golden, one of the last great dragons of Middle-earth and a real badass. (I like him! ^^)

In the Third Age in the year 2770 Smaug attacked the lonely mountain, home of the dwarves of Erebor. He destroyed the dwarf kingdom, the nearby town of dale, and claimed the huge traesure buried in the dwarves mountain for himself. Two hundred years after destroying the town of Dale, Smaug was slain by Bard the Bowman of Esgaroth, with a little help from Bilbo Baggins, of course…

"I kill where I wish and none dare resist. I laid low the warriors of old and their like is not in the world today. Then I was but young and tender. Now I am old and strong, strong, strong. Thief in the Shadows! My armour is like tenfold shields, my teeth are swords, my claws spears, the shock of my tail a thunderbolt, my wings a hurricane, and my breath death!"
-Smaug-


I hope the Smaug in the new movie will be good…

This scene is my favorite part of the book. I just love how smug and confident Smaug looks here.

That's a robust Smaug. I think the one in the upcoming film will be more "snake" like.

Smaug is going to be played by Benedict Cumberbatch and Bilbo is being played by Martin Freeman.

They also work together in BBC's Sherlock.

Look it up!
