As most role players usually are, I was struck at a young age with the writings of JRR Tolkien. The Hobbit, though not one of his most in depth works, is still my favorite of his.
In specific, I just liked the dragon, Smaug. I hope that I don't share too many of his traits, but I would not mind a cave full of gold if it came down to that :-). Because of that affinity, whenever I've needed a nickname for online use, I've always been 'Smaug_' (the underscore is a throwback to playing magic the gathering online, where you'd have your current life total after the underscore, and change your nick whenever you took damage).
Because of that, when I decided that my page needed something in the way of eye candy, I went looking for a picture of a red dragon.
There is an abundance of dragon art out there if you look, but not very much of it is good. This picture is in my opinion, an exception to that rule. I hope the artist, Graeme Base, doesn't mind that I borrowed his work.
