Fell beasts vs. Smaug Can't Post

After catching a glimpse of Smaug in one of the new cryptic TV spots, I'm left contemplating the difference is between a fell beast and dragon in design terms. Won't they end up looking quite similar? On first impression Smaug doesn't appear much larger than a fell beast, and he looks to be the same color. Obviously, he's a different being, with fire-breathing abilities, great intelligence, greed for gold, malevolence, etc. But I really hope they can keep him looking quite distinct, especially in his pre-golden stage. What do you think?

        Hope not. I like Lee's Smaug renderings MUCH better than Howes. I like Howe's visions of Gandalf and the Elves AinurOlorin Send a private message to AinurOlorin Nov 30 2012, 11:38pm
            Cumberbatch did say he was as big as the empire state building didn't he? Sinister71 Send a private message to Sinister71 Dec 1 2012, 1:39am
