Forgot - Had Bilbo Baggins been played by Peter (Cleggy) Sallis, I MIGHT have seen the movie, but as it is, I'll just be Cleggy and stay home & read the book.

The thought just occured to me: Bilbo could have been played by the British actor Peter Sallis. His character Cleggy (of Last of the Summer Wine) has much in common with Bilbo Baggins.

I really like this! The dwarves looks like they're having so much fun, and Bilbo is all, "Who are these people and why did they show up at my house?"

The style and design you incorporated into the essence of this fit the book with grace =D
Bilbo's expression is both amusing, as well as fitting; when the "most wretched adventure" first came into his home, he was rather resistant to it all.
Thankfully, the Took side won =)

This is just how I'd picture Bilbo looking "as he stomped off to the pantry". LOL NICE work!
I reread the Hobbit every year. It's an old friend...
If they ever make a live-action version of The Hobbit (like LotR) I hope Peter Jackson does it.
Again, outstanding work! :w00t:
