The hobbits lost in the Barrow-Downs... Pippin is closest to the camera but it should be Merry I forgot which one was coming last... Oh well, Pippin thinks he hears something...lets pretend they've already gotten turned around at this point and Merry's managed to go past Pippin without realising :P

Merry is in front of him, the Sam then Frodo up on top of the hill there...


Just HAD to take a night to do a quick 2hr painting. I was dying under all the uni work. Tuppence my dog stepped on the bottom when it was still wet (down near Pippin's pony's feet) so thats why you can see paper wrinkles there...

This has a great dreamy and foggy feel to it. Pippin and the pony are both very cute. :)

The wrinkled paper actually adds a really cool effect XD I'm not sure how to explain it but in my weird twisted mind it fits totally in with the Barrow-Downs.

Awesome. I really like how you handled the water color. If I attempted anything like that it would turn into a soggy mess. And a little LOTR art is always nice. =D You should make a piece with sexy Boromir in it. =P
