It's definitely taking me quite a lot longer to wrap my head around what I want these hobbits to be. Lucky for me that there's only one main hobbit in the story as opposed to the dozen dwarves.
I have a feeling these guys are going to require a lot more effort before they get anywhere good. I'd say 95% of these pages are straight lousy. The only thing I do like are the knickers that go into the footless socks.
Hobbits, I think, are a lot harder to design than the dwarves are, mostly because there isn't a lot of wiggle room to break free from the Peter Jackson depictions unless you really ignore parts of the text. Although I don't always love the design of those films, I can't argue that Jackson's hobbits probably look exactly as Tolkien imagined them.
Maybe in the future I should number these so I can make reference to them more easily.
