awesome drawing! the only critique: i think bilbo should look a bit more afraid, as he is about to be eaten by gollem...

A classic scene, one any fantasy buff would recognize!

I really like how you've drawn Bilbo's hair and face as he ponders the answer! Very creepy Gollum and the greens really create the damp, eerie atmosphere! :)

An excellent depiction of an excellent scene! I love gollum... this is much more how I imagined him before the movies came along. :D

Wow, very fresh, original attempt for this topic. A rare thing to see original illustration for this book. Bilbo looks very real but his portrait seems to have a little irishness :) Gollum is fantastic and creepy with a touch of Faun's Labirinth echo I think :)

He he - yeah I think I saw all the hobbits with a bit of the country irish in them...maybe just the Brandybucks ;) This was done a long time ago I confess, as a sketch piece for a Tolkien criticism book interior page.

Wow. Gollum looks really creepy on this one. I want that illustration on the cover of my "The Hobbit" book ;)
