Wow this is beautiful and I love his face:D What makes you choose the yellowish color? The detail are lovely, I especially like the helmet, sword  - all the jewels on his chest! And how his wings and skin are so different from the regular dragon scales and wings..really nice work!

Thank you! =D As for the yellow - I wanted to color the drawing in a very simple manner, yet not leave it black-and-white. I chose yellow because I thought it would make the dragon look more or less golden, as he guards treasure inside the Lonely Mountain. Also, I'm a sucker for vintage stylization and often use yellowish tones and textures made of old paper in my works.

Oh I didn't think of the relation to the treasure, nice one! I do love old illustrations as well so your choice did make me think of them :) It's an interesting idea to do a very simple coloring like this digitally, I might try something like this cause I have  a lot of ink drawings and sometimes the straight black and white doesn't seem "finished" looking enough to me. I'm not great with color yet so ...yeah nice idea!

Gorgeous..I like how you've left the head relatively detail-less compared to the body.

Thank you! I figured that at least one part of the drawing should remain simple to balance out the horror vacui downstairs :)

Nietypowy, ale interesujący wygląd Smauga, a sama kompozycja i drobiazgowość - bardzo dobre.
