Another go at a rendering of GDT's Smaug Can't Post

Since a lot of people seem to get worked up about GDT's description of his Smaug and I had an image in my mind that looked very different from what others seemed to (fearfully) imagine, I thought I'd give it a shot and draw my mind's image of GDT's Smaug myself ...

Soooo ... before we all get ready to shoot it down again (you wannabe Bards, you ;)), a few reminders: I knocked this out in, like, 10 minutes. I don't get paid for this, I am not a professional in this kinda thing whatsoever. It certainly does no justice to the combined efforts of the most talented people of the world working on this concept over months and months and months as GDT, Weta and numerous designers brought in only for this did. BUT it may serve as a proposition as to how to understand GDT's descriptions: a four limbed dragon, the wings attached instead of the hind legs. The front legs are shorter than the wings (of course). It looks vaguely like an axe if you look at it from above.

Thank you.
