The Hobbit - DRRR!! Parody that I finally finished last night. This was a very, very large picture, you have to realize. A 6 x 53 inch canvas, and I’ve never worked that long before.
You can take a look at the animation here.

This is the moment I fell in love with Bilbo. Because I understand this expression to the depths of my soul.

'The roots of [the Misty Mountains] must be roots indeed; there must be great secrets buried there which have not been discovered since the befinning. So [Sméagol] journeyed by night up into the highlands, and he found a little cave out of which the dark stream ran; and he wormed his way like a maggot into the heart of the hills, and vanished out of all knowledge. The Ring went into the shadows with him, and even the maker, when his power had begun to grow again, could learn nothing of it.' - Shadows of the Past, The Fellowship of the Ring.

I’ve also taken some of those ‘medallions’ and expanded them into full 8x8 square prints! All of the artwork is available on my etsy, and I’ll have it at Kumoricon this weekend in Vancouver—come say hi!
In case you were wondering, I’m a huge Tolkien nerd, born and raised. As well as reading all of the books to me, my parents pretty much told me I was a hobbit when I was little, and they were right. I have freakishly small hairless feet, but other than that, total hobbit.
