Bamfurlong by AndyIomoon Bamfurlong by AndyIomoon
It has been a long time coming - and here it is: my latest Tolkien illustration! The scene first fell out on the paper in a rush, right up to the inking stage. And then it sat, in hiatus, for quite some time as I fussed about how to paint it. Thankfully, this recent long weekend gave me enough time to tackle it head-on again.

Very happy with the vintage feel to the colours in the end.
Details of the steps leading to this stage can be found in my blog.

Many thanks for the support on this one.

Bamfurlong by =AndyIomoon. From the suggester: "Along with it being an often-neglected scene from LOTR, the artist completely captures Farmer Maggot's personality with this one painting. The small details also make it perfect- full view is a must!" ( Suggested by AinuLaire and Featured by aunjuli )
