Bilbo by Elluwah Bilbo by Elluwah
Painted in December 2012.

Digital painting done for a friend, who I promised I'd do a Hobbit drawing for before the film came out. Well, I succeeded! I finished this a couple of days before it was out in cinema. Very quick painting compared to my usual ones, timed myself whilst listening to the Hobbit soundtrack and it ended up taking me just under 2 and a half hours to complete.

I'd love to do more Hobbit/LOTR paintings sometime, if I ever get the chance to. Looking forward to seeing Smaug too, I'm pretty sure I'll want to draw him when we finally get a full glimpse!

Gollum: And if it loses, what then? If it loses, Precious, we eats it! If Baggins loses we eats it whole!

Bilbo: Fair enough.

Incredible realism as always, Ellu. :iconiloveyouplz:
And the colors are well chosen.
What a coincidence though, I just watched the series the other day! X3
