The Hobbit: Smaug

What to do when Hippo is gone for the weekend?
Play around with make up!
The whole sink is covered in glitter right now… hehe >:)
This is the second look for my Hobbit series, inspired on key elements out of Tolkien’s stories that I really adore.
Today, the lonely mountain was my inspiration.
More specifically the town of Dale and the dragon Smaug that took control of it.

Pretty sure that’s not it..
There we go!
The lonely mountain was once home to the Longbeards, a prosperous clan of dwarves founded by Durin.
Lead by Thrór, they acquired great wealth.
Not only the Arkenstone but immense piles of gold and gems as well!
I read all reptiles are attracted to shiny objects for some reason.
Well in the case of Smaug that seems to be true!
The treasure caught his attention, and he flew in to make it his own.
And then nap on it for years.
(ahh who’s a cute dragon..)
With Smaug now guarding the treasures that once belonged to the Longbeards, Bilbo, Gandalf, Thorin (Thór’s grandson),and 12 other dwarves set out to reclaim their long forgotten gold.
There’s the beginning of the Hobbit for ya!
Now here’s what I came up with:
