He looked fine in the films. Personally, I wouldn't have wanted him any other way.

Problem is that he's a Wyvern in the films.

'Course everyone and their mother has mentioned as to why that's a problem when he's supposed to be a Dragon.
Heck, Tolkien himself stated that Smaug had four legs, yet Jackson decided to go with the two-legged Wyvern appearance anyway.

WHOA! This is, with no doubt, the BEST representation of that scene I've seen so far! (And that I'll ever see I guess!) It has caught PERFECTLY the imaginary that comes to one's mind while reading the book -that's the thing that I love the most about your piece- and made it possible for everyone to SEE it for real, not just imagine it. ABSOLUTELY STUNNING, you've done great!!!

no, not Smaug, I will complain to all Smaug "artists" he is lion faced, furry cheeks and fur down his spin, missing a scale on his chest, VERY red, cat eared and has an under bite.
