Smaug as important as a successful Gollum?

I agree, entmaiden, that given WETA's prior successes--including the utter slam dunk of Gollum, I'm not really doubting that we'll have a superiorly rendered Smaug. For some reason I'm rather curious what color tone he'll be and whether or not he'll look dinosaur-ish (is that a word?) Those don't honestly seem very important really, but when you start deconstructing all the design elements/decisions, it's quite a list.

Do you think Smaug is as key (from a character and getting-it-right CGI perspespective) as Gollum was/is? I think a faulty Gollum would've sunk LOTR, but I think the Hobbit could withstand a controversial Smaug as long as the rest of the movie held up.

ps- hi--good to see you!
