Crafty Smaug by Fallonart Crafty Smaug by Fallonart
Crafty Smaug
The Hobbit fan art, when Bilbo goes to steal a cup from Smaug the dragon.

I meant this as a book cover kind of illustration. Text at the top, spine down the middle, space for the summary at the back.

Hope you like it! Even though we have to wait another 2 years for Peter Jackson's version.

Nothing official. This is for my portfolio and because I'm a fan.
However if someone wants me for something official, toss it my way!

See my other covers
The Name of the Wind (Patrick Rothfuss) fallonart.deviantart.com/art/T…
Galvanic binding (A Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss): fallonart.deviantart.com/art/G…
The Gathering Storm (Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson): fallonart.deviantart.com/art/T…

Slight edit for end of the year portfolio cleanup! I made it brighter and clearer a bit, nothing major.

Peter Jackson's version turned out to be terrifying. Cumberpatch had a LOT to do with that, but those animations were AMAZING. 
I wish they had kept the red eye beam, at least initially when Smaug is looking for an invisible bilbo, but I can't have everything -.-

So Good. If the movie can get the feel of this picture, then it will be done right. I just love how this drawing shows something i've really being longing to see: dragons actually being terrifying. Not epic. Not beatiful. Just terrifying. So Good. So Good. The darkness in the hall... very nice, to bad it will not be like that in the movie I guess, since the first one already showed Smaug a little bit, and the place was quite bright.

That disturbs me. What does a dragon with red glowing eyes need with light? Especially when he's spending most of his time asleep... I guess we'll find out

Thank you!
Eating Bilbo would be like eating one cheez-it for this Smaug.
