-------------------


"Go back?" he thought. "No good at all! Go sideways? Impossible! Go forward? Only thing to do! On we go!"


Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) from the highly anticipated movie The Hobbit.

TRAILER :bulletblack: <a href="www.imdb.com/title/tt0903624/
"> IMDb


I’ve been waiting for a long time to draw Bilbo, and I wanted to do something from the new movie. But I could not wait for December to do it. I found this picture months ago, with an exceptional quality, that I could not resist.
Maybe it’s the first of many, but I actually don’t know… since my enthusiasm for drawings has been kinda bipolar these days.
Anyway, it feels so good to be back, again. Finding new references, old inspirations, and high expectations to start the first outlines… well, there is too much to talk about. I'd rather say that is just a true little journey. My own journey. It’s something no one can take from me, and never will.


Pencil drawing on A4 paper.
It took 40 hours to be done, with a lot of headache and sleepless nights.

:bulletwhite: Um soberbo trabalho em preto e branco! :winner: Rosto,cabelo,detalhes da roupa,tudo está primoroso! :clap: Gostaria de sugerir-lhe um retrato da Galadriel,mostrando-a como a temível Rainha Branca,quando ela é tentada pelo poder do tenebroso Um Anel.A meu ver,essa foi uma das cenas mais impressionantes do primeiro filme. :nod:

Obrigada fia!!
Foi tenso fazer essa roupa. Inicialmente achei que seria fácil, mas foi um ledo engano. haha Fazer essas "nervuras" me deu, literalmente, dor de cabeça. Acho que de tanto olhar as linhas, eu sentia até náuseas. Tive que desenhar aos poucos.

Desculpa a demora, aconteceu tanta coisa ruim por aqui...
Acabei deixando o DA as traças, mas agora estou retornando.

É pq faz pouco tempo que vc voltou a desenhar, logo não vai ter mais essas dificuldades...

That is so beautiful! The Hobbit has inspired me since I was a very small child. So I am very excited for the movie and couldn't be happier with who they cast. Do mind if I print this and hang it on my wall? I have sort of an art gallery and it could use a Bilbo. Especially such a fine one :heart:
