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.

Thank you! Yes, the movies never really got them right for me.

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.

Bilbo's eyes are so kind and sweet, Elrond is so handsome, dwarves are so magic and nice... Oh..
Love this drawing a lot, thank you.

I love your un-movie depiction of Elrond.
