no, not Smaug, I will complain to all Smaug "artists" he is lion faced, furry cheeks and fur down his spin, missing a scale on his chest, VERY red, cat eared and has an under bite.

I love when people are so insistent in being wrong lol I can only assume the 1977 cartoon version was the first time you ever saw a depiction of him?
And I couldn't find your own attempt of creating Smaug. Instead of complaining about artists' work, just seek out ones more to your liking.

There he lay, a vast red-golden dragon, fast asleep; thrumming came from his jaws and nostrils, and wisps of smoke, but his fires were low in slumber. Beneath him, under all his limbs and his huge coiled tail, and about him on all sides stretching away across the unseen floors, lay countless piles of precious things, gold wrought and unwrought, gems and jewels, and silver red-stained in the ruddy light. Smaug lay, with wings folded like an immeasurable bat, turned partly on one side, so that the hobbit could see his underparts and his long pale belly crusted with gems and fragments of gold from his long lying on his costly bed.

I bid you a good day.

He's got such personality, and I love how snakey he looks, I agree with other commenters in that that's how I always imagined Tolkien's dragons. Really well done.

Love the wings and the curl of the tail. And the mound of gold. Brilliant!

Really cool. I like that it's so snake-like, all the gold and the lighting

Love the snake-like body here; this is what I always imagined when I read Tolkien's use of "worm" for dragons. The possessiveness comes through very well too - great piece all around.
