Smaug was the greatest and most powerful Dragon in the later part of the Third Age, and the last of the great Fire-drakes of Middle Earth. His invasion of Erebor and his possession of the Lonely Mountain made him extremely wealthy, since the Lonely Mountain was once home of Dwarves and still held much of their treasure. Smaug lived there for many years, until he was slain during the events of The Hobbit.

The story started when Smaug the Golden or Smaug the Magnificent, a winged fire-breathing drake, attacked the town of Dale and captured the Lonely Mountain (Erebor) including all of its treasure. For almost two centuries, Smaug ruled the Lonely Mountain uncontested, laying waste to the lands around the mountain, so that the blasted domain of the magnificent Dragon of Erebor became known as the Desolation of Smaug.

With the terrible events created by Smaug, a company of 14 adventurers led by the heir of the former Dwarf-kingdom, Thorin Oakenshield as well as the burglar known as Bilbo Baggins and a witch named Gandalf, entered Smaug’s mountain by a secret door. The burglar noticed its weakness while observing him in his lair which became the main reason why the great dragon of Middle-Earth was defeated.

Here’s a magnificent collection of dragon smaug illustration designs composing of stunning digital renditions of the great dragon of the Hobbit.
