A Fresh Breath by Elucidator A Fresh Breath by Elucidator
I painted this for a Hobbit contest. It shows that awesome moment when Bilbo pokes his head up over the forest. Unfortunately, I didn't win anything, but here are my other submissions:

Haha. I haven't even seen the movie, and my first thought was still "Wait, is that Bilbo?". Great job! :D

Haha, lots of breaks. I work on several pieces at a time and switch between them so I don't get bored. I also frequently visit the fridge to keep my motivation up. ;)

Thank-you! I never saw the cartoon, but I'm curious how the live-action film will tackle it. I grew up with The Hobbit and this scene is an old favourite for me.

Awesome, love the way sky and canopy was designed. Why are all the butterflies black though?
Reply
:iconelucidator:
Elucidator Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks! I'm not sure why the butterflies are black -- you'd have to ask the author! It just says in The Hobbit that they're black, so that's how I painted them!

Thanks. I think a couple people have mentioned that, so you're probably right. I have to spend some more time studying fundamentals so I can pull these illustrations off better!
