graedegaz the greedy dragon

The storyboard for this animation was inspired by Smaug the dragon from ‘The Hobbit’. The character design for this dragon was drawn from Proto Germanic and Norse origins of the word Graedagaz, which means greedy. Graedagaz’ food pile draws parallels to the hoarding nature of Smaug and his gold.
