Hobbit: Gandalf came by... by moonytash Hobbit: Gandalf came by... by moonytash
By some curious chance one morning long ago in the quiet of the world, when there was less noise and more green, and the hobbits were still numerous and prosperous, and Bilbo Baggins was standing at his door after breakfast smoking an enormous long wooden pipe that reached nearly down to his woolly toes (neatly brushed)—Gandalf came by.


Yay! I'v done it!
I've been trying to do this very scene for 3 years now... And its only now that I am happy with the way it turned out.

Hope you like it! More to come. :sun:

I turned my head in all directions in order to read the text. Nice work! I like those details like the rabbit, mushrooms and flowers. And I love the way you choosed the colors.

Thank you for your very hobbitish illustrations for The Hobbit. I like it when people allow the The Hobbit to stand on it's own merits. Cute rabbits.

Excellently well done! I like the simple (and yet extremely compelling) coloring: it fits a children's book - which "The Hobbit" was intended to be - illustration perfectly. Bilbo's expression is wonderful as well.

I, too, love the way Gandalf turned out: very original! =D

It looks a bit like window colour. Or like a window picture in a church. :D

It reminds me a lot of the "Hobbit" comic cover I have at home...

The colours here are way brighter and happier.

I'v only seen one comic Hobbit in my life (we don't have comic books as a rule here in Russia)
And it - was rather dark too.

Well I am glad this one is bright)
