View Full Version : Smog the Dragon

05-08-2006, 08:52 PM
This is a dragon concept im working on. It is going to be a High Res. model when all is said and done. Jim Henson/Brian Froud is my influence. Im about to begin drawing out the body. I would apreciate any advice or critique on the heads. Im wondering about the level of realism...which style is more appealing...comments on proportion, on areas i can add to, on things you would like to see or things that would give me trouble modeling. if you know about edge flow, i would appreciate tips on how to go about it. im a beginer poly modeller. Its a version of "the Hobbit"'s Smaug...for those who know more about the details of smaug, keep me on track.

thank you

Actually, that would be "Smaug" the dragon. Nice concept drawings, though; good luck with it!

Really nice concept! Cant wait for the 3d model. Maybe one day I learn how to draw concepts :)

Your concept of Smaug doesn't really match my image of smaug, who is really a "wurm" that does not fit the more muscular proportionated western model of the dragon vs. knight

Here's Tolkien's own drawing of Smaug:


John Howe did a good one too:

Nice concepts. Can't wait to see your 3D.

I myself have been planning on doing a 3D version of John Howe's Smaug, but I've got other projects to worry about so this one's on the backburner.
