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!

This is really good! The skin texture looks so real! Bilbo is one of my favorite characters. I'm SO into LOTR & the Hobbit nowadays! Can't wait for Battle of the Five Armies! Emoticon - Cheers

Thank you so much! :la:
I can't wait for it, but I'm also terrified of it. D: I don't want it to end!

Very welcome!
Lol I watched the trailer of the last one, and it made me sad! I was like, "Noooo!! Why does it have to be the last one? I don't want them to end!!" I hate it when really good movies with characters you love come to a stop.
I'm reading the Hobbit right now. I think I'm the only person in the world who hasn't read it. hehe

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

Bilbo: Fair enough.
