Book: The Hobbit
Posted by: Sam Bosma

Because of the amount of time it takes me to complete these illustrations to my satisfaction, I am altering my posting schedule from a final every month to a final every two months, with a process update on off months. I will still be doing twelve illustrations, but from now on, they’ll be arriving a bit slower. I must apologize for this, but I only want to deliver my best work and my free time to work on these flights of fancy is limited more and more each day.

That said, here are a few of the many, many sketchbook pages I’ve devoted to this next illustration and to the design of its main attraction, Gollum. None of these thumbnails will be used in the final, and I’ll probably have twenty more before I get to where I need to be. I’ve had a much easier time determining what shouldn’t be in this image and I’m still trying to figure out the rest. These Gollum drawings neither great nor are they the final design, but they are on the right track. The rest of my process work for this project, including more Gollum drawings, can be found on my blog.

    Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some
    advice from an established blog. Is it difficult to
    set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking
    about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Appreciate it
