Yeah - I have plans for a few Hobbit oriented pieces if I can free up from other projects/commissions. These days I tend to go where the money is :/ I'm sure that will change come this summer I have the rest of the Endless to work on now
Exciting! I've been thinking a lot about Desire lately too, for my Endless series, but the challenge is portraying her without actually portraying her. Love your Destiny illustration. Absolutely perfect.
For watercolor work - I tend to use arches, hot press or medium press if I can find it (it's a bit rarer). The tea was just used to stain the paper, actually. That and coffee can be used to give paper an aged look.
