The hobbit by francoclun The hobbit by francoclun
Peter Jackson is back in Middle-earth for another adventure three films long; I just saw the first movie and I liked it.
I started drawing on November 1 and I finished on december the 26. I worked on it for 110 hours. is certainly the most complex and challenging drawing I worked on. I was hoping to finish before the movie, but the effort was greater than I expected.
I suggest you look at the drawing in its original size, to capture the details.
Hope you like it

The detail is amazing, absolutely incredible! The shading is really really good! The shadows are perfect and the texture you've created is practically identical to that of real clothing, though Bilbo's shirt looks a little odd at the bottom - but, it's barely noticeable.

My only, you could say, criticism is that the expressions themselves could be a little more emotive as they look, to me, to be quite cold and blank (except for Bilbo). If you used a source photo, it could be that they did just look like that but, if it was just from memory I am incredibly incredibly impressed.

I also LOVED the movie! So, maybe I'm a little biased too. But, I think you did an amazing job!

je suis d'accord avec evelynnight pour les expression (les regardes) des nains, ils paraissent trop sévères pour des nains alors qu'ils devraient plutôt s'amuser.
les cheveux et barbe d'Oin sont extraordinaires, de même pour son vêtement, on ressent la texture, c'est impressionnant.

vous êtes vraiment très talentueux, c'est toujours un plaisir de voir vôtre travail et d'attendre ce que vous aller poster sur ce site

[I agree with evelynnight for expression (look at them) dwarfs, they seem too severe for dwarfs while they should rather have fun.
Hair and beard of Oin are extraordinary, also for its garment, we feel the texture, it is impressive.

You are really very talented, it is always a pleasure to see yours work and to wait what to go to you to post on this site]

This image is so detailed.I love the shadows, highlights and tonal variations. The cloth fabric is wonderfully done. You have a lot of patience because I know I would have never gone to such details :)
