Was anyone else slightly disappointed with Smaug's design?

Let me start by stating that I love these movies, despite their flaws, and actually prefer them to the LOTR films. I love the visuals, set design costumes and makeup, including Smaug. The CGI for him is some of the best since Kong. However, I wasn't initially thrilled w the way his face looked. Like the Rankin and Bass cartoon, it was slightly mammalian. I was really hoping for a strictly reptilian classic dragon look. More specifically, I wanted him to look meaner. That being said, what they used works and he still looks fantastic, and his interaction with Bilbo and Bard were phenomenal. It didn't break the movie, but it wasn't exactly what I wanted. Is that how he is supposed to look based on the book?
