When Benny Cumberbubu said he was going to be in The Hobbit, I wanted so badly for him to be an elf with some luxurious hair.... but a dragon and a dark lord is not that bad :D

I'm ashamed that I never left a comment. I actually found this, and you, by looking for drawings of Smaug on google; and may I say that it is my best find ever. I love your subtle details, and the colors of the watercolors, and the way the gold actually seems to shine. It makes him look alive. This is my favorite, not only of yours, but of all Tolkien inspired artworks.

I'm just browsing through these, they are all so beautiful. I've not seen The Hobbit yet and Lord of The Rings put me to sleep the first time I saw it, but I can appreciate beautiful artwork when I see it. I'm going to stop creeping and go back through to add one of two to my favorites now. :D

wow, so gorgeous!!! That would be so cool if Smaug actually took human form in the Hobbit movie. He isn't going to is he?
I didn't think he was going to, but maybe you've heard some yummy news I haven't?
