Alternate Concept Art Designs For Smaug From The Hobbit

Andrew Baker is one of the amazing concept artists who worked on Peter Jackson’s big screen adaptations of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit, and he helped bring the greedy dragon Smaug to life through his amazing digital artwork.

This collection of alternate designs for Smaug may have been left behind well before production, but they show the evolution of the final character design that made it into the movie The Desolation of Smaug, and they give us a rare insight into the concept creation process from animal influence to working 3d model.

Andrew is part of the WETA Workshop, and his concept art for Smaug is part of the recently released art book The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug: Smaug: Unleashing The Dragon.
