Smaug and his treasure by Shockbolt Smaug and his treasure by Shockbolt
The next Middle-Earth inspired image in my series of them. This one was finished a couple of days ago.

Smaug inside Lonely mountain, ontop of his pile of gold and treasure.

Ask for permission before using this image for any reason.

Thanks for viewing :-)

*edit: Hey thanks for selecting this as a DD! I wouldn't concider this one of my top Middle-Earth related images myself, so be sure to have a look at the other ones in my gallery too! :) *

Smaug and his treasure by =Shockbolt. With an enchanting color palette and delightful details, this depiction of Smaug (from The Hobbit) is delightful and mesmerizing! ( Suggested by katzypotter and Featured by aunjuli )

No worries, I prefer my dragons more like seen in this image rather than huge and bulky with oversized spikes and shells :)

Thank you for not making Smaug a drake (wings attached to forearms). I hated that they did that in the movie. Smaug is most definitely not a drake but a true  full dragon.

I want to thank you Ray for the beautiful image, which I used as a background for my illustration of Thorin Oakenshield. It made my drawing come to life! Check the finished result here ===> fav.me/d6y56mn

You can see it also in my drawing tutorial on YouTube:
