My armor 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!

no, not Smaug, I will complain to all Smaug "artists" he is lion faced, furry cheeks and fur down his spin, missing a scale on his chest, VERY red, cat eared and has an under bite.

Honestly I think your illustrations would be better than Alan lee's in LOTR. I'm a sucka for the lines.

Smaug: "Well, thief! I can smell you, I feel your air... huh?
*sniffs again*
Smaug: "Watson?!"
Bilbo: "...Sherlock?!"
And they all had a good laugh
