This was my very first commission for an actual book cover for one of Tolkien's books. I initially did a terribly bad sketch of Bilbo and the dwarves in the dark forest that the editor rightly refused. Smaug seemed a logical second choice. Making his chin rest on his feet, like some enormous dog curled up before a fireplace took some cautious bending of his long long neck.
