Smaug the clay dragon trial 1

So as I’ve said, sometimes I surprise myself and sometimes I fail spectacularly. Maybe Smaug isn’t a total failure but I’m not happy with it. I didn’t use nearly enough clay so it’s really thin all over his body, which means his wings didn’t attach properly. Also for some reason the black pieces didn’t want to stay on and I lost a good 4 spikes on his head and one on his back. 

I still like the concept, it’s a combination of the Hobbit and the BBC Sherlock. I had found this really cute dragon on Pinterest in a similar pose looking at a mouse on his tail and I remembered how the fans refer to Martin Freeman as a hedgehog. So it had to be done. I’ll probably give it another go eventually and see if I can make it better in the future.
