The Hobbit or There and Back Again

Bilbo Baggin's peaceful life is disrupted by a sudden visit of Thorin Oakenshield, his group of twelve dwarves and Gandalf the Wizard, who has chosen Bilbo to be the burglar in Thorin Oakenshield's expedition. Thorin's plan is to reclaim the Lonely Mountain and its vast treasure from the dragon Smaug. This expedition will lead them over the wilderness to Misty Mountains and beyond.

Drawing ink & graphite pencil work. As a part of my new year's promise to finally illustrate my version of The Hobbit. The announcement trailer of the movie was like an alarm for me, hehheh.

It's clear that contrast between trees, mountain & mist isn't the best one. Once again I made the error not planning to the end, as first two trees were fine but the rest made them look odd in my opinion.

Halkeasitko riemusta jos joskus tulevaisuudessa sinun kuvituksesi julkaistaisiin kirjojen uusio painoksissa?

Jaa, olisihan se tietty imartelevaa. Nyt on tosin kysytty näitä piirustuksia viime aikoina vaikka minne suuntaan (jenkkilään päin aikalailla) mutta niistäkään ei sitten tiedä. Oudoin oli joku Catholic courses -järjestö kinuamassa piirustuksia luentojensa tueksi - joiden aiheena on väkisin etsiä raamatullisia viittauksia Hobitista. Joopa joo ja Tolkien kääntyy haudassaan.

Rahaa ei tietenkään jo tehdyistä töistä heru (kirjajulkaisu voisi olla tietty toinen tarina, haha) mutta näkyvyyttä lähinnä noilla ilmaisilla julkaisuilla, esimerkiksi olin ihan tyytyväinen kun Tolkien Gatewayhin ladattiin meikäläisen töitä wikiartikkelien kuvitukseksi.

Kuten varmaan huomasit olen itse todella surkea kaupallistamaan näitä piirustuksia millään tasolla, hehheh. Kunhan on mukavaa piirtää, se riittää. Harva näinä päivinä itseään elättää kuvittamisella Hiltusen ja Lukkarisen tavoin.

Kiitos tuosta raamattu-piiristä. Nyt voin enään töin tuskin nukkua öitäni kun tiedän tollasenkin olemassaolosta XC...
Mutta tiiätkö sellasen sivun kuin cghub.com? Son sellane kaiken maailman artisteille tarkotettu sivusto joka toimii samalla maailmanlaajusena työnhaku pisteenä, vähän niinku työkkäri. En oo jäsen mut löysin tän ko olin googlettaas erinäisten gw kuvittajien gallerioita. 0_=

Amazing!! Well done! I can't wait for the movie! The only casting I'm not sure about is Thorin and Fili. What do you think?

I wait for the movies too, damn that release trailer was nice. Only year and then another year, sigh.

About casting... Can't say anything about actors themselves, other than it looks promising. Stephen Fry was a nice surprise as a master of Lake-Town. I would only complain about the "make-up" - Thorin, for example, looks far too young. I recall that he was described to have white hair and beard. And what's with the overall lack of beards! Blasphemy! ;)

Thank you for the comment!

Thank you! Drawing trees is fun in its own odd way, although it's really hard to balance contrast between trunk, leaves and branches + with other scenery.

Thank you! I usually love to add details here and there when it comes to characters and gear they're wearing, but with sceneries like forest, well... I have to be careful. In this work the contrast between two trees in front, background forest and mountain seems to be balanced enough.

The trees do look nice, and the three travelers below well done also, although Gandalf looks a tad short. But the scenery is well done.

Thank you for the comment!

I agree with the size issue, I had a problem in this part. There were many creatures in different sizes in this illustration - hobbit, dwarf, man, pony, horse. I had to select a focus point and that was the difference between animals, as those were most visible. Gandalf and horse could be a bit bigger, I usually draw too small horses anyway.

Hehe, trees can be tricky to draw but it's fun in a own way. Trees that I draw tend to be oak-alder-maple mixes, though.
