Frills... by Ghostwalker2061 Frills... by Ghostwalker2061
I honestly don't know what I'm doing. This is supposed to be the redesign for Smaug. But, I think I hate it. *head-desk*

I know Smaug from the Michael Hague paintings mostly. In those, his head was REALLY lizard-like, except for the ears, they were like bats' ears. The best I can go for is to suggest something more similar to that.

How about an updated version of smaug from that old Hobbit cartoon? At the time Cat-face Smaug was best Smaug.

I'm not entirely convinced you aren't some sort of devious time traveler. Is your alias River Song?

Looking at this, I'd reduce the size of the mane if not outright ditch it. In line with what Netaliargus said, the head looks like it would suit a slimmer neck than the one depicted.

Whenever I think of Smaug he will usually be a serpentine take on the traditional Western dragon, although the Rankin Bass version and the red dragon from D&D also come to mind on occasion.

When JRR made Smaug he usually used a serpentine body, but had a fairly stout neck and large head. The image of smaug on his horde has the longest neck of any of JRR's drawings and it wasn't very long. In his image of smaug been shot over Laketown, Smaug's neck and head are almost like and alliators.

Of course, what JRR wanted is not really that important. Ghost needs to find her Smaug.
