My brother has been on a serious Lovecraft kick since I introduced him to eldritch horror.

So I drew him this picture.



My wife didn't want me to give it to him, so I have to do more... I haven't done something this elaborate in a looooong time. It was refreshing but also humbling to see that I tend to take a ton of shortcuts when I draw anything. Taking the time I did with this made me realize I'm a lazy bum with my artwork.

I'm wanting to do a Hobbit picture next. Any suggestions for scenes?

Too cool. Love the hypno-toad eyes.

Hobbit: How 'bout the scene where Lhurgi, the dwarf whom no one likes, strangles Bilbo, trades clothes with the body & rolls it into a ditch so he can go on The Greatest Adventure after all.

Ah, yes. The version in the appendices and ghostwritten by Tolkien's other son, Sheffield. I do hope Jackson incorporates the song "Stab Radagast in the Eye and Fricassee the Rastobel Rabbits" from that into the third film.

I mean, I have a habit of rushing thru things and not being as detailed as I could. This picture's level of detail and care is not the norm (though I want it to be...)

Never has one picture so accurately depicted exactly what my stomach felt like today after eating that spicy burrito.

Damn good drawing.

Cool picture.

How about the scene where the thrush visits Bilbo and the Dwarves on the mountain?

look to the Hildebrandts for inspiration

I'd like to see the progression of terror from entering the hall to the first seeing of Smaug

LOL! Scan it and then you have it forever.
It's very "pulp"ish. looks like it came right out of weird tales or something.

do the balrog fight on the bridge. You'd get to do all kinds of fun cave things.

A troll sitting on Bilbo, squishing him to jelly as he eats a bacon-wrapped submarine. Inside the submarine are the dwarves, with their pudgy paniced faces pressed against the glass of its portholes. Behind them descends Gandalf from the sky as though he is JC himself from JC Superstar.

that's not the Hobbit

the riddle contest with Smeagol would be nice, if you can depict the smeagol/gollum personality clash somehow.

I already wanted to do that, so it's on my list!

That's good, too.

I can totally envision this. I may have to try to get it down.

I like the more sedate scenes (chasing the lights, the thrush at the door) since it would give me the chance to try something else.

Thanks again!
