The Hobbit, part two

“Dawn take you all, and be stone to you!”

This scene with the three trolls is one of my all time favorites in literature. I love the trolls arguing about how to cook the thirteen dwarves, and their dimwitted back and forth with the unseen Gandalf. It’s the first real scene where Gandalf reveals some of his power, keeping the murderous trolls occupied until the sun rises and smites the three.

I’ll be posting a rather lengthy post on the process of this piece on my¬†blog come Friday, which should make me look like a real idiot.

Next month I’m looking to do something a lot more simple; these extensive pieces are sometimes pretty nasty to deal with.

    All your work on this is truly spectacular, Sam. If I had a hat on, I’d take it off to you!

    Love it Sam, especially that sweet sweet background with the mushrooms on the trunks, those subtle trees further back, and the bird and greenery in the foreground. Excellent details. Plus them trolls look dirty! Nice work all around.

    Amazing! I especially enjoy the little feet sticking out of the sack.
