The Old Forest by Meisiluosi The Old Forest by Meisiluosi
I did this for an art trade with :iconfaqy: ...
Her contribution was this absolutely lovely Maedhros:
She required a picture of hobbits. It took me a long, long time but I finally got round to it.

I wish I could offer something more accomplished and in the future I may actually try (after all, this is probably my first picture prominently featuring hobbits of any kind, so I guess I owe them a pic or two)...
The hobbits (I haven't yet quite decided who's who in this pic) in the Old Forest. Probably on their way down to the valley of Withywindle.

Wow :) Interesting scene and perspective I think. And at least I've find some not-movie _and_ not-ugly hobbits :D And to find both at the same time is hard :) This is very like some classic childrens book illustration.

I love everything about this!! The composition, the hobbits, the trees.....

Very nice! :clap:
You captured the gloomy atmosphere of the forest very well. I also like your interpretation of the hobbits (even though the last one seems a little bit tall and blond for my taste).
One rarely sees pictures of the Old Forest, these days ;-).

this is really nice!  Do you know, this looks like a proper old fashioned 'children's book' illustration to me. Not that LotR is a children's book but still, if they did an illustrated version, then this is a picture I would want to see in it. :D

This. is. wonderful.


I love the perspective and view of this piece.  It really adds that sense of wonder I feel when reading Tolkien's works.

pááá to vážně skvělé *___*
 hlavně se mi líbí ty jejich výrazy, jsou tak správně zmatení a realističtí(to mi nikdy nešlo..já mám všechno hrozně barevné a stylizované ^^; )

...a jdou ti dost dobře :D ...mmmmm....vážně hezky pracuješ s linkou a texturami-ty stromy :heart: -
děkuju moc za art-trade :hug:

Já zas zbožňuju ten tvůj osobitej, hravej styl. Já třeba zas mám problém, kdykoli se snažím od toho realismu odpoutat a udělat něco výrazněji stylizovanýho.

Beautiful! Love the line work and colors :D Hmmm, I'm guessing it should be Samwise in the foreground, he's rather rounder than the others. Behind him it looks to me like Frodo, slimer and finer features than the others.
