Last week, I was excited to watch Peter Jackson's first "video diary" from the set of the first of the two "Hobbit" movies that the "Lord of the Rings" director is finally shooting in New Zealand. I look forward to the finished films.
In honor of the beginning of the filming of this long-awaited adaptation of a beloved book, I dug up this old drawing -- I think it is from the late 1970's or early 1980's. I am not completely sure WHY I drew this, other than that I am a big fan of Tolkein's book.
I'm also not sure why I left it unfinished... seems to me like it's almost all there, and I would just need to put in some spot blacks and maybe a little shading.
In any event, fans of "The Hobbit" should be able to tell what scene this is meant to illustrate. -- PL
