Doodle 144 - Smaug and the Turtle

I had an awesome and relaxing first day of the holiday, I really can't wait for Christmas Eve and day!

And now for today's undisputed winner!

Laura P.

Congrats Laura! Please send me your mailing address to DrawingSaudadeBlog at

Now here we have today's giveaway doodles:

Smaug Mask - blue mechanical pencil, watercolors and micron pen on watercolor paper. Aprox 1.5 hrs
It is the dragon Smaug!

I also decided to take a couple of progress shots for the next card:

WIP watercolor and blue mechanical pencil

WIP watercolor and blue mechanical pencil

Sea Turtle Mask - blue mechanical pencil, watercolors, micron pen on watercolor paper. Aprox 1 hr
And so there they are, to win these cards you will have to write yet another Haiku, you can make it about either the dragon or the turtle, but you can't win both cards at once. Once again, here is that handy Haiku Tool.

Andrei will give me a hand and judge the turtle haikus, I will judge the dragon ones.

You will have until Sunday December 23 at 11:00 P.M. EST to enter.

Only 2 more doodles to go! Good Luck!

I love Haikus! And I love Smaug...but I wrote about the sea turtle because he reminded me of Lilo and Stitch!

Aloha Sea Turtle
Sings you Mele Kalikimaka
And frolics in the warm Pacific

Dragon beneath us
Fire and fierce smoke
His name is Smaug

Vixi said...

Sorry, forgot a word. Here's the whole haiku.

Dragon beneath us
Fire and fierce smoke billowing
His name is smaug

Not sure if I'm supposed to post this here or not but here it goes!

bright orange glowing / majesty of flames across the sky / stealthily guards his horde

Rhissanna said...

Oh! That haiku tool is cool!

The dragon can't sleep.
On his knobby mound of gold
he dreams of pillows.

Here's my stab at Smaug {rawr!}

Tongue full of bright flame
Eyes of glittering jewels
Smaug slumbers in gold.

Ruby said...

floating mosaic
drifting, floating, knows no home
that is its beauty

Emily said...

Smaug the terrible
Greedily guards his treasure
Brought low by Bilbo

Bethany said...

I like both of these cards, I would be happy to win either. So I wrote a poem about both.

Gliding peacefully
through the ocean tides and currents
Grab Shell! Righteous dude!

inspired by the turtles in finding nemo.

Scales like fire glow gold
Never wake sleeping dragons
Dwarves make good dinner

Sparky said...

I love Sea Turtles!
Walter Matthau with scales
Grumpy, but so sweet

Silent wings of flame
His greed brings him beneath
The Lonely Mountain

So both of these cards are beautiful, so I entered for both. Because really, it never hurts to have a back up plan. I must admit though, while I like the sea turtle, I LOVE the Smaug. When I was little, Smaug was my favorite villain! I could practically recite that book by the time I was eight or nine, and Smaug never ceased to frighten me.
