Riddles in the Dark

Riddles in the Dark
pencil on bristol 8.5 x 11"

"Now he drew it out. It shone pale and dim before his eyes.
'So it is an elvish blade too,' he thought; 'and goblins are not very near,
and yet not far enough.' ...
 Now Bilbo was in what is called a tight place." 

Drawing number two in my Hobbit series. Hope you like it. I think I'm getting a little better at this drawing business. I still think I fuss over a great deal too many things that don't need to be fussed over, and ignore quite a few things that need desperate attention. Ah, well. I shall keep pressing on. Until next time, here is an excellent video of J.R.R. Tolkien himself, talking about his Lord of the Rings trilogy (and Hobbits too if I remember correctly. Watch for the 1960's college kids talking about what a Hobbit is, and the red-headed girl who rambles on about the story. You'll know what I mean, you can't miss it. Enjoy! And stay tuned - next week, I'll announce the BIG GIVEAWAY. Don't miss it!

Ah, so Hobbit Month has continued. Good work, young Shire-dweller. I am looking forward to more, I hope? For that would make a young Hobbit at heart very happy.

Thanks guys!
Glad you're enjoying "Hobbit Month" sparse as the posts may be!

@Abigail, I'm planning to try and get in at least one or two more drawings before I go see the movie next weekend. Then stay tuned, I'll be giving away one of the drawings (and maybe a little something extra) around that time.
