Alternate Smaug Designs From WETA

So, as is common in the movie indus­try, WETA consid­ered a vari­ety of differ­ent designs for Smaug before settling on what we got to see in The Hobbit movies. And designer Andrew Baker has posted a big batch of those designs on his blog under the head­ing Smaug Fails.

Look­ing at what he has posted, I think it’s safe to say that he’s being self-depre­cat­ing on this one. Not all of the designs would have fit the style of the movie certainly. And some wouldn’t have captured the right feel for Smaug. But they are all visu­ally arrest­ing in their own right.

Make sure to click through and check out the entire collec­tion.
