Smaug by PaintedKelpie Smaug by PaintedKelpie
So this is the best I could do today. I wanted to get him painted up the best I could before the movie! I'm going to go over him again, particularly with antiquing. He looks a little better in real life. The camera ate up a lot of the shades....He's a little more red than shown here.

How do you make the scales so precise? Anytime I etch them into the clay I get a bunch of little clay flakes that get in the way.

Looking fantastic, so much detail! Please take photos at different angles when he's finished. Are you going to paint his belly like it has jewels and gold on it?
