The Trolls

The Trolls

The Trolls is the second piece in my series of sketches depicting scenes from J.R.R. Tolkien’s: The Hobbit. This piece recreates an original artwork in which J.R.R. Tolkien himself drew Mr. Bilbo’s tale encounter with the trolls. While no replica, the idea for this piece clearly mimics that of Tolkien’s. One of my favorite tales from the book, I just couldn’t resist.

This sketch is the second sketch in my sketch book, and it is also the second version I have drawn. The original was drawn in July of 2014, and was gifted to someone. While drawn on a piece of printer paper using only one pencil, the original version was the first thing I had drawn in fifteen years.

Hobbit Hole

The piece titled Hobbit Hole is an imaginary depiction of author J.R.R. Tolkien’s: The Hobbit. Completed in August of 2014, the sketch took three hours to create. My inspiration came from the book: The Hobbit, as you might have expected. Hobbit Hole is the first sketch in my sketch book, and is the opening piece in what will be a series of sketches as I bring J.R.R. Tolkien’s: The Hobbit to life.
