Amazing Smaug The Dragon Artwork For ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’: “Under The Lonely Mountain”
“My armour is like tenfold shields, my teeth are swords, my claws spears, the shock of my tail is a thunderbolt, my wings a hurricane, and my breath death!” Nicola Michelle has put together this great ‘The Hobbit’ painting centering on Smaug the Dragon. If you weren’t already aware, Benedict Cumberbatch is playing Smaug and The Necromancer in ‘The Hobbit’ film series. Smaug, one of the last remaining dragons in Middle-earth, guards the treasure in Erebor. Cumberbatch will portray Smaug and The Necromancer through motion capture, similar to Andy Serkis with Gollum. Smaug has a very brief appearance in ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,’ during the opening prologue and the ending, but only portions of him can be seen, not his full body. I’m looking forward to seeing him unleashed in ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug!’
The second in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece ‘The Hobbit,’ by J.R.R.
