Is it bad of me that this scene first made me laugh? I can just hear Thranduil thinking," oh shit, it's looking at me!" lol. Awesome piece of art...seriously, it has a certain sexiness to it.

The atmosphere, the colors and the composition are beautiful. And the dragon flying at him! Thranduil looks so young, and so shocked and vunerable; a very fitting expression for someone who has just lost a loved one. I want to give him a hug.

AHHH! THRANDUIL!!! :excited: 

This, melon nin, is a great piece of artwork. Part of me is struggling to not scream out "Watch out, Thranduil!", cause there's a big, hulking dragon flying in and part of me is just enjoying the pure Thranduil beauty. :happy: 

Now, if you'll excuse me, there's an elven king I must kidnap. :fangirl:

I still don't understand why they turned Smaug into a wyvern in the movies.

During the original design phase of Smaug he was a four legged dragon (if you saw the original theatrical release of Unexpected Journey he had two front legs as he stomped into Erebor) However later, Peter Jackson brought up the idea of losing the two front legs, giving Smaug more interesting movements and a practical pair of 'hands'. It also allowed them to take a lot more from Benedict's motion capture sessions so they could put a lot more of him into the actual dragon (more than just his voice) It's all explained in the extended edition special features of Desolation of Smaug :)

All that was easy to do with the two front legs. I'll just go and slap the shit out of Peter.

Do you know how to animate a six limbed creature and keep it consistent and realistic looking, adding in the movements done by Benedict who only has four limbs and couldn't give them any kind of hint as to what the wings should be doing. They made their decisions with fair reasons and they did an amazing job.

And to follow up on Tolkien's Smaug, if they'd gone with that original look he'd have looked so freaking derp that people would complain that he wasn't threatening enough. Just compare this www.toptenz.net/wp-content/upl… to this vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/v… and tell me which would make you shit your pants.

Because you didn't need to animate the wings at every given second? Smaug was in a cave that was tight even for him. He could've kept the wings glued to his back. Second, they're only using the forelegs for movement. There is literally no difference between animated winged arms and basic arms. Hell, the basic arms would've been easier to animate over because there's no wobbling associated to the stretch of skin!

Let's see...one was made by a single guy in, like, the thirties(!). The other was made in 3d with modified appearances designed to make them more threatening and reptilian (like they did everything up to this point). The dragon could've been perfectly modified like they did the wyvern. These all just sound like excuses.

Did Tolkein ever actually specifically say he wasn't? (Genuine question, I've read the book but can't remember exactly)
Reply
:iconthetruepsychopath:
TheTruePsychopath Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2015
Yes. He called Smaug a dragon and even described his features. Not only that, but the art he did HIMSELF as the COVER ART for The Hobbit shows a DRAGON!
