2016 Art Challenge - April - The Hobbit by Tamuril2 2016 Art Challenge - April - The Hobbit by Tamuril2
So, Scrub456 had this brilliant idea that we'd each draw a scene or character from our favorite book. Mine is 'The Hobbit' by JRR Tolkien. It's a scene right near the very, very end, after the battle of the five armies. I, obviously, still need work on drawing the human body (hobbit or elven), though it came out better than I'd hoped it would. 


Book Excerpt: 

"Farewell! O Elvenking!" said Gandalf. "Merry be the green-wood, while the world is yet young! And merry be all your folk!"
"Farewell! O Gandalf!" said the king. "May you ever appear when you are most needed and least expected! The oftener you appear in my halls the better shall I be pleased!"
"I beg of you," said Bilbo stammering and standing on one foot, "to accept this gift!" and he brought out a necklace of silver and pearls that Dain had given him at their parting. 
"In what way have I earned such a gift. O hobbit?" said the king.
"Well, er, I thought, don't you know," said Bilbo rather confused, "that, er, some little return should be made for your, er, hospitality. I mean even a burglar has his feelings. I have drunk much of your wine and eaten much of your bread."
"I will take your gift, O Bilbo the Magnificent!" said the king gravely. "And I name you elf-friend and blessed. May your shadow never grow less (or stealing would be too easy)! Farewell!"
Then the elves turned toward the Forest, and Bilbo started on his long road home.


I'm also doing my own Fanfiction story of The Hobbit (AU, of course). Check it out, leave comments, if you feel so inclined. Link: archiveofourown.org/works/5737…

Great illustration of this scene! Interesting perspective too. It sort of creates a slight cinematic tension with the leaning tree. Nice artwork! :D (Big Grin)

It is, by far, my favorite in the whole book. I was so disappointed when it didn't get into Jackson's movie. Thank you so much for the comment (that you took time to do so, after looking at my picture, makes my day). :hug:

I had not yet read the Hobbit book (I came to the fandom only a few months ago), but I've heard of that scene and I love it. I too wish it were in the movie ^^
And you're welcome ^^

It's an easy read, if you're ever looking for something to breeze through.

you mean writting or reading? About writting I wrote some fanfics in the StarTrek fandom some time ago (and I'm writting an original sci-fi novel). About reading, for what concerns the Tolkien universe, I read some Thranduil fanfics here and there but not that much ^^ The Elvenking is the one who got me into the fandom in the first place XD

Both, really. Ooo! Are these stories (both fanfiction and original posted anywhere?). Mostly though, I meant fanfiction. I was hoping to share some, if you were interested. I love sharing. :D
