A break on the journey by Murfish A break on the journey by Murfish
Hi there people!
Here is my take on what almost every illustrator in the world has done, a representation of "The Hobbit"!
So, instead of the usual choices i didn't want to represent any monster or epic moment of the tale, i just wanted to show the only moment of the novel in which every character seems to be playing along with the others and they really think like a group.

It is placed when they are going to the Black Forest, after being in Beornīs place.

Hope you like it!

PD: Thanks a lot for the DD and all the wonderfull comments!

Given 2012-11-13
The diversity of the emotions, poses and the different characteristics of the drawn characters in A brake on the journey by ~Murfish made this artwork stand out. Plus, you'll surely enjoy the warm feeling from the choice of colors used, and the details are grand. ( Featured by jcroxas )

Technically, it's called "Mirkwood". But yeah, I like that you chose to do a scene like this. And I love the light and the richness of color you've used.

Very nice to see a warm, 'relaxed' scene. As you said, not every image in a fantasy has to be one of epic action.

I like the warm colours you have used in this picture and the soft lines in the characters. There is so much of feeling of 'relax'-ness and peace in this. So much of what I recall as childhood bliss. God bless you and may your talents continue to flourish.

Ah, the Hobbit, one of the first books I've ever read. A moment of chumminess and calmness for a story about one little man's resilience to changing his earthiness. Very nice work.

Awesome illustration! Can't wait to see the movie.

The only thing that bugged me in this was the "lighting" on top of the guy's head at the bottom (honing his sword), it kinda looks like a bird went to town on his head and coat. :P The rest of the lighting looks great, though!
