The Hobbit. Journey to Rivendell

I’ve just moved back to colour pencils and it’s been one of those “where have you been all my life?!” moments. When I studied art, colour pencils were never really promoted- it was all paint, paint, paint (and perhaps some printmaking or collage). I think that the popular imagery of The Hobbit has gotten too dark, and as much as I like the fantasy stylings, I wanted to bring it back to it’s roots as a children’s book.
