A portrait of Smaug, the dragon from J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit and a childhood favorite. I wanted to push the envelope and discover a new look for this archetypal fantasy character, evoking his personality and balancing realism with storybook whimsy.
Thanks for checking out my work! See the process from sketch to finished illustration on my blog.
