5.0 out of 5 stars The complete guide to the anatomy of a dragon - a Hobbit Chronicles companion book from WETA, 27 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Smaug: Unleashing the Dragon (The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug) (Hardcover)
I was absolutely taken away by the quality of the other 3 Hobbit Chronicle books published by the WETA Workshop, and was interested to see what they would have to tell about Smaug that was not told in the Creatures and Characters. (There is very little on Smaug in that Chronicle book actually). I am not a computer graphics maniac or expert, but found this Chronicle Companion well worth buying. I now totally agree that designing and creating this one character for the film deserved it's own book like the Gollum book did written by Andy Serkins. This Smaug book is less a personal account rather than a compilation of very interesting comments made by all the contributors, shaders, texture artists, animators, sculptors, etc. all describing a little piece of their art that made this one amazing CGI character come to life. I am always humbled by the absolute maximalist approach of the WETA team, covered by Daniel Falconer. Beutifully illustrated with hundreds of original concept art, it is a true companion book to Weta's the Hobbit Chronicles series. If you like those, you can't possible miss this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, 1 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Smaug: Unleashing the Dragon (The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug) (Hardcover)
Being a lover of all things dragon-related, and LOTR as well, had to get this book. Smaug, in particular, is a BRILLIANT example of a dragon in all its glory! The book contains lots of different photos, conception art, writings by members of the WETA team, and even a prologue by Benedict Cumberbatch. Overall, a beautiful, glossy, lavish array of the work put into creating this magnificent dragon of The Hobbit!!! Love it 10/10

This review is from: Smaug: Unleashing the Dragon (The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug) (Hardcover)
This book gives in depth insight into the talents of Weta Workshops. In a world of painting and sculpture, these artists have created something exceptional in Smaug and are obviously very proud of him. I had no idea there was so much work involved. Amazing from concept to finished article.
