Ok, so, on my last Smaug pic, I asked
if Smaugs red-gold description would mean a copper color, or mean he was red and gold. Neither of us knew, so I made two heads to compare.
The top head is colored with my copper pencil, and the lower is red marker.
I like the red marker better. The copper didn't work very well. >_>
