Smaug by Moumou38 Smaug by Moumou38
Hi everyone, long time no see.

Those who follow me on facebook probably remember the WIPs I posted this week....here is the final result of a painting I recently started.

This is a personal version of Smaug, the mighty dragon living in the Lonely mountains, right above Esgaroth and Long lake in the book "the Hobbit" written by Tolkien . I wanted to draw it before the Peter Jackson's movie's version is released.
I know it doesn't fit exactly the description, especially about the "armor" thing and his skin like jewels but I wanted my Smaug to be more "animal"-like... I wanted to highlight the wild beast. I hope you like it though.

oui, je ne sais pas si ça colle bien à l'intelligence de la créature décrite d'habitude, là il a un côté beaucoup plus animal

Ce qui n'empêche pas qu'il doit être intelligent (pour être capable de parler).
Je ne traîne pas... des fois qu'il aurait faim. :p

merci beaucoup, je suis contente que tu aimes cette vision des dragons. je comprends que ce ne soit pas franchement l'idée typique du dragon occidental des légendes d'Europe...J'essaye de faire quelque chose de différent.

Oh ! a mais oui c'est vrai qu'il va y avoir un dragon dans cette partie des livres de Tolkien. J'voudrais pas croiser son chemin en tout cas :XD: ! très réussi.

merci merci, je me demande à quoi il ressemblera dans le film. Je suppose qu'il sera pas du coup comme mon dessin, plus dans l'image classique du dragon avec une gueule plus longue.

Only critique would be the wings. The look like they go straight out instead of flaring back.

J'adore la tête façon poisson des abysses, ça lui va bien et ça rend vraiment bien le côté dangereux et malsain de la bestiole! La peau des ailes est magnifiquement réalisée! Et très beau travail sur le contraste des couleurs! :love:

En tout cas merci beaucoup, je m'amuse toujours autant avec les monstre et je trouve que les ailes sont vraiment intéressante à peindre pour le côté translucide, un peu comme des chauve-souris.

Je suis un peu arachnophobe donc j'ai pas encore essayé mais ça fait partie de mes projets proches. Shelob probablement.
