There and back again... by Gold-Seven There and back again... by Gold-Seven
Our new bedtime story is at hand - here's the Hobbit, with loads of little illustrations to help my son keep tabs on who is who! ^^

Also a welcome chance for me to put some of those characters on paper, so I don't lose hold of *my* characters when the movie comes out.

Note: I put Thorin as "Thorin Eichenschild" as I'll be reading the books to my son in German; for Bilbo, I forgot to call him "Beutlin". The name has been translated in the German edition because there's a passage when Bilbo talks to Smaug where he says, "I came from the end of a bag, but no bag came over me." So it has to be translated.

Pencil in moleskine sketchbook. Drawn during a looooooooong conference. Background made in Photoshop (by me).

Yay for book!Thranduil. That's almost like my mental image of him.

I've probably already told you, but I like your versions of Thranduil and Elrond better.

Thranduil looks a bit like a male version on Joan of Arc.... That's really cool 8D

This is so perfectly in tone with the book I cannot even begin to express my gratitude for you ! The Hobbit is so much more a fairy tale than the Lord of the Rings. Your dwarves are perfection.

I love your un-movie depiction of Elrond.
