Some of you may know that this is My Year of The Hobbit, thanks largely to a little project that I am undertaking with my good friends Ben (ironhenry
) and Tere (terepalomitis
It has been a while since I have posted something here so I thought I would show off my pencils for the first illustration in, hopefully, a long series all dedicated to my favourite children's book of all time: The Hobbit. I'm still undecided whether to finish this off as a properly rendered pencil drawing, add ink to it or (time permitting) add colour to it. Which ever way I go I will update this illustration when I have something else to show.
Details of this project and some of my process work can be found on my blog
** More updates - a brief spell in Hobbiton tonight... very pleasant indeed
** Finally, a half-decent scan... this one after putting down some ink outlines. Still had to stitch it together though so it's a little fuzzy in places. But it will do for now. Colours next!
