Good Morning - Colours by AndyIomoon Good Morning - Colours by AndyIomoon
The incredibly long development cycle is finally over!
Looking back at my old blog posts I realise this image is nearly 18 months in the making. This is a slightly colour-corrected photo of the final colours. It's still not a fabulous representation of the real thing but it will have to do until I get it drum scanned.

One thing I learnt from this - leaving masking tape on too long is not great for the paper :) I took off large chunks of the surface of the paper when removing it. I have an idea how to fix it up before framing it though.

More to come!

Is it watercolor and ink?

Very nicely done! And I understand completely about the colors. Many scanners can be fickle beasts at best. At worst, they can be downright exasperating!

Many thanks. I could easily spend the rest of my days illustrating Gandalf. He does indeed have a lot of character :)

Thanks, Ben. I have you to thank for nudging me along this route... slow and ponderous as I move it is nice to see it done.

Does the smoke from the pipe extend in to Gandalf's beard or somink? Cause I can't stop thinking that Gandalfs beard is just smoke...or the other way round....Im confused...

Heh - I had the same feeling when I looked back at it at the end... it looks like Gandalf's beard is the smoke from Bilbo's pipe :)

Oh gosh, I love this part of the book. :XD: "What do you mean? Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not, or that you feel good this morning, or that it is a morning to be good on?" :rofl: That line from Gandalf makes me laugh every time I read it.

This is a beautiful piece, though. :meow: The border makes it look so much cleaner and more professional. :D
