And Back Again

There are many paintings of Gandalf and Bilbo starting a journey, so I wanted to paint one where they are returning home. I'm still searching for my style by trying to keep things loose and leaving distinct brush strokes.

This painting started as a test for a paint program I've been making, but most of it was still done in Corel Painter. Some adjustments were done with Photoshop. The hobbit hole was referenced from photos taken on the Lord of the Rings movie set.

Very nice! I love that it has such sharp brush edges and not all smoothed out.

Nice choice of color palette here! Excellent proportions and perspective! The visual trajectoire though seems to stall from the left but thanks to the lack of profondeur from the right which brings balance to your main piece! :thumbsup:

The idea and its depiction are lovely, but Bilbo came home to find his house and furnishings being auctioned off. Not quite so peaceful as this.
