Reminiscing in colour by AndyIomoon Reminiscing in colour by AndyIomoon
... that would be nice. My memories always appear to me in shades of grey.

As for the story Bilbo is telling... the clue is in the three fingers he his holding up... one each for William, Tom and Bert. But I like the other suggestions too :)

(available as a print now!) :)

I can just hear a burst of laughter from it!
The colors are fittingly soft and organic, like the Hobbits,
and it feels like there's so much story behind it and you want to be there! :w00t:

This is so wonderful! I've been staring at it in my inbox longing to click it and say something equally as nice, but now that I finally have time to do so, I am quite speechless. I love your work.

Fantastic, as always! The expression and the movement in this piece are wonderful. As soon as I saw it I knew Bilbo was talking about the trolls. The colours are lovely. Fantastic!

I *knew* it was about the fingers! :) What a strong style you have there, Andy, it's beautiful. This looks like an etching. Publishable stuff, mark my words. :D

As for my silent support - would that it was not that silent. Time, time, time... (and "Energy, energy, energy", I might add.) Have never in my life been this busy... but hoping to catch you online soon! I wonder what the menu will hold. ;) *hint*

Thanks, sis. Publishable you think? I must do something about finding an agent then! ;)
Look forward to seeing you online for more work on Illustartist.

i like how this piece is without borders- it is very clean the colors are nice- it would be nice to see a few smoke rings though- good job
