I always loved the Rankin Bass design of Smaug, from the animated Hobbit movie... So brilliant with those giant bat ears, and the crazy cat eyes...

  1. Always always I loved that design. Seeing it as a child had a profound effect on me. There was intelligence in that face (and voice). The somewhat wolf-like overall aspect harkens back to certain dragon types... Viking dragons I believe. The cat eyes with the light beams were so great. Love love love that Smaug.
