“Concerning Hobbits" Ink. Virginia Giordano.
Oh man. Finally done. Though I might do color washes later…So, the work of J.R.R. Tolkien is my life, and I’m constantly attempting to pay homage in my own work. This time however, I felt like paying a little homage to Peter Jackson and the cast. I’m a huge fan of the movies and I don’t really believe in the “one or the other” mentality.
The piece in general is about Hobbits and their relationship with nature and their ability to remain unseen. I gave each Hobbit an item relating to the four elements, which also happen to reflect their personalities, for Pippin: Beer/Water, Merry: Pipe/Air, Samwise: Athelas/Earth, and Frodo: The One Ring forged in Fire.
