I started this one quite a while ago, back in January after I saw movie for second time. I thought it would be fun to paint this guy in traditional way too :)
Gathering good references was a bit of pain, he's still inaccurate in some spots, but I am happy with it :) He is painted with inks and watercolors on handmade paper. Overall it 47cm wide and 35,5cm tall. Aging the paper was really fun process! I am really thinking about making couple more pictures with this technique. Sadly it's so big I couldn't really scan him properly, so you gotta be content with photos :C I know most of you prefers scans of finished pieces, but with this one it's just impossible with my clunky piece of scanner garbage :V
Smaug belongs to Tolkien. This version of design was based on "Desolation of Smaug" movie. Artwork belongs to me!
