Oooh ooh getting better. Proportions are getting smoothed out and I'm getting a better handle on the different types of Hobbit clothing. Third here is my favorite, I think. He seems Tookish. I do like the poncho-like traveling cloak, though.
In rereading the book, I'm really quite surprised at how little description of things there is. I guess all of this imagery from John Howe and Alan Lee and the LOTR films has leaked into my subconscious and I just kind of assumed it all came from the book. I know there's quite a bit in Lord of the Rings. Hmm. Can't wait to get to the goblins. I have some hilarious ideas for those guys.
Drawing is just the best.
