the Hobbit

This is another pencil rendering from my sketch book, trying to work on the subtle gradations of dark and light. I never finished this one, but had a good time working an image of Smaug, the dragon. This scene is obviously from the Hobbit, when Bilbo puts on the ring, and goes into the lair of Smaug to steal a piece of his treasure. So, technically, this doesn't work because Bilbo is invisible!!! Artistic license!!!! I felt the idea of Bilbo being so close that he could touch Smaug was very cool, and Smaug knowing he is there, but not being able to see him. As I look at this sketch, I see that a lot of detail could be added. Maybe someday I will finish it and post it again...
