King under the Mountain by Sherlockian King under the Mountain by Sherlockian
Truly songs and tales fall utterly short of your enormity, O Smaug the Stupendous...

I have been to the midnight screening of Hobbit 2 and Oh my! That dragon is my soulmate, Benedict Cumberbatch...your voice, your acting...*sigh*

*Cough cough* So after the movie I went home and drew Smaug before I forgot what he looked like...I hope I captured him.
I've used graphite on

Here's another drawing of him: sherlockian.deviantart.com/art…

wow you did this from memory? AMAZING. I'm so in love with Smaug it's not even funny. The rest of the movie had stuff that annoyed me (Tauriel for example) but Smaug made me forget all of that!

I think you got him really accurate! At least the way I remember him.
Wonderful shading! You can really see the texture of his skin. I love this drawing! :)

Thanks! :) It's wierd but since I saw the movie I have tried so many times to draw him again, but it never turns out as good as this one. Need more practise XD

Aww don't you hate it when that happens? XD I have a few examples of things I've drawn a long time ago and I can't get close to even after years of improvement. -_- It's not fair! D:

Wow, thats awesome! The only details you forgot were the spikes that run down the side of his neck as well as the ones on top! Well done! That dragon was such a badass.

STUPENDOUS JOB!!! :icondragonnodplz: I love this drawing!
I'm going to fave it right now!
Smaug...whatever I might say, I'll fall short...I think he is one of the most beautiful dragons I have ever seen on cinema...if not THE most beautiful one.
-Absolutely adored him-
You captured his essence very well, his personality and pride are present here. GREAT JOB!

And now I have to congratulate you! I went to the premiere and I wanted to draw the terrifying Smaug before I forgot how he looked like but sigh, it was too late :( so I drew Tauriel. So super-duper great job there!! 

I wanted to verify... It's only myself or Legolas looked different in the films of The Lord of The Rings...?

Thank you XD memory is the problem!  Legolas looked very different, but it could be that LotR was filmed 10 years ago. Ten years can change some people alot.

Hahahaha I know 10 years can change a person a lot xD but, for example, at the beginning of the first film of the Hobbit, Frodo looked exactly the same; Galadriel too, and also Gandalf, and Lord Elrond too, but... Legolas... Had something different like... His eyes were more lighter or... Just dunno, I see him different xD and yes! Memory is the problem for excellence hahaha xD

Thank you! His voice was great, you could sort of hear that it was Cumberbatch, but not so much that it interfered with the movie. He can play any sort of character.

I will only get to see the movie on December 13, but in the meantime, this is impressive. I think I'm going to love the dragon too, and I hate loving bad guys. I hope he does something that makes me want to kick him.
