This was a project from a Capstone course at Bowling Green State University. Because of my hobby of studying dragons I was instructed to utilize my skills with them and illustrate a scene from my favorite book that dealt with dragons. My favorite scene was in J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Hobbit." This particular scene takes place inside the dragon, Smaug's, lair. He awakens after noticing that a piece of treasure has been taken from his hoard. The hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, has made off with a piece of his treasure, a heavy cup. The drawing was done in pencil on a sketch pad.
This was a sketch from a Figure Drawing course at Bowling Green State University. The class had two hours to fully draw our model. This was done with charcoal and pencil on newsprint paper.
