Smaug by hyperfilthered Smaug by hyperfilthered
Smaug The Terrible from the movie Desolation Of Smaug. I've seen it already twice, and the second time I had my sketchbook with me. I came up with this quick sketch which I polished later at home using memory, notes and doodles. I am quite happy with the result, though it doesn't make justice to the "real deal". :) I don't want to sound cocky or anything, but am I the first person on the internet who has drawn the movie Smaug? I can't find any other photos or pictures of him(/it? whatever). Also Benedict Cumberbatch was freakin' nailin' it as Smaug. Goddamn he was awesome.

Did you use any refernce at all? Not calling YOU out in anything, but I am tracking down proof of an art thief, and your drawing looks like it may have been using a similar refernce

I am almost tempted to let you take it. If only to see Oakensheild suffer, watch it destroy him, watch it corrupt his heart, and drive him mad! But I think not. Our little game ends here. So. Tell me thief, how do you choose to die?
PercyJackson7 Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2014
haha I remember that scene - smaug was flicking his tail back and forth until he snapped at Bilbo and, missing, released a huge spurt of fire :D

Is this when the dwarves unveil the... statue? (I don't want to spoil anything for anyone)
Synkerrogo Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm not sure if you're the first (I tried to draw him as well). I watched it once at the movies and then I found the movie on the internet (terrible quality, and yes... it's out there... In Spanish, i do speak Spanish, btw i think it recently came out in english) and drew him... but I love yours. It looks amazing and a lot better than mine. good job
P.S. should I upload mine? I don't reckon it's as good but...
AidanTheMighty Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2013
Yes, you're first person, who draw him :D I was looking for something like that. It's amazing that you did it only using memory... it's great. It's real Smaug. I love your job, dude. Amazing :)

Awsome. Smaug is my favorite Tolkien character.
Seikoun Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
You did a really good job *_* And a really good idea with the sketchbook xD
I have to admit that this is also the first photo/picture of Smaug that I've seen. ):
I've searched for some time, mostly paying attention to his "arms", cause they're also his wings but nobody does that in their drawings.  (I was also surprised to see him like that).
But BC was really awesome ♥ His voice + how they brought Smaug to live was probably the best part of the whole movie.

(Did you see the difference to the first movie? For me, the picture of the 2nd one was "too realistic" sometimes. Like they should've added another filter or something. I can't describe that, but maybe you can get what I mean >__< This was really annoying sometimes.
Or (for some it may be a spoiler) while Legolas was balancing on just one foot. On a barrel. On a river. XD And shooting his enemies with precision. Yes. And at the end he was SO FUCKING ANGRY Ò___o because his nose bled (xD), so he rode after his enemy but didn't shoot him? What? Too angry for that?)

sorry for the spam °_°

Those first few moments where he's looking for Bilbo... just.... my jaw dropped to the floor. His design and body movements were mind blowing, and that voice...
VeganSpyro97 Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2013  Hobbyist Artist

Totally right for the part. He ROCKS as a dragon. Maybe he'll walk onto the set of Sherlock still as Smaug and just yell: I NEED A CASE!!!!

ThatArtisticMofo Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2013
Yep that's pretty much what he looks like. Nice
DisneyAreslover Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2013
I'm going to watch this movie on Tuesday, and I can't wait to see Smaug! 😀
BouncyBean Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Every time I see Smaug I want to shriek with joy. The movie was so awesome and he was the coolest dragon I've ever seen! Thanks for drawing him so soon after the premiere!
hyperfilthered Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2013
Tell me about it! He was done so well and Benedict's voice was bone chilling. "I am fire, I am... DEATH!" Soooo awesome!
vevans0009 Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2013
My...god...!!! That looks exactly what I saw in the film last night with my sis! Excellent memory, hyper!
hyperfilthered Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2013
Well the second time I watches the movie I was really concentrating to take "mental images" and putting every detail in my head. But thanks anyway :)
