The Hobbit: Smaug the Dragon
This was for the Hobbit swap. I had recently read the book when this tracker was released and knew the movie was coming out but it was a difficult task to choose what "item" I wanted to carve. But knowing that Smaug is such an interesting character and villain, it was something that drew my interest. I searched for a lot of drawings and interpretations of Smaug but settled on this one. I was not thrilled with the decision to do a darker version of his lair for the background. I thought of trying to do some thin line work and maybe just use a neutral color for the background and black ink but overall i was not pleased with how it turned out. I liked his face but wished i had done something different with the overall card itself. The red of his skin was done with marker.
