Smaug the Tremendous by AntVar Smaug the Tremendous by AntVar
"Well, thief! I smell you and I feel your air. I hear your breath. Come along! Help yourself again, there is plenty to spare!"

This LEGO sculpture is actually more of a mixed media, as I used gold foil for the majority of the treasure. It isn't "purist" but it was the easiest way for me to produce a large pile of treasure for Smaug to rest on.

Made by me from LEGO elements and gold foil.

I think most of that is gold foil.

I'd love to be able to make something like this!  A really awesome job!  However, I checked out your other design on Smaug, and this design mixed with the other's tail would have been better.

Yeah - I know its mostly foil, but I'm talking about the plates bricks and gold coins. So Far I think I've only had one Lego Coin and one gold plate.
