Been working on this for over a week and I am done with this for a while might try it again at a later time...especially since the color is off I got his eyes too big mouth is not right as well as the nose...I just need lots more practice on faces anyway thought I would post it anyway just so you know I have been doing something. LOL...:wave:

hello ladyalba...quite nicely done. though there are some issues that uve yourself mentioned regarding the proportions...but its seems quite moody...:).

So that's what you've been doing!
Sometimes it is good to stop for a while and come back later with a fresh eye and do the necessary correction.

Thanks Waheed and Janet....I scrapped the whole thing and will try from scratch again later LOL I have gone into a MAJOR painting slump and don't know when it will pass. It is busy around here (home front) all of a sudden and I can't keep my mind on what I am doing anymore. ;o)

I like it :wave: , I first read the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings trioligy to my youngest son when he was about 5 (1967) and he still has and loves them

Well even if you have started from scratch again, this shows it will be worth it! I first read the Hobbit series in the 60's also and was amazed at the cosmology of JRR. An amazing mind and imagination! You'll get over the slump! Soon!

A "do-over" is a good thing. Lets you fix all the things that you wanted to fix when you're painting the second version.

It always amazes me... the clarity of vision that builds with taking a break from a painting. Marge, slumps never last... the best medicine is to paint right through it.:)

Thank you...Joel, Digi, Kirk, Jean, Skinny and Janet...I know these days come and go LOL I just hate it when I am having off times I prefer the times when everything goes along smoothly. ROFL Yep I think # 2 will be better. :wave:

I would not have scraped it. When you think of the burden he carried with the ring, as I am a Lord of the Rings fanatic since a child, you can well imagine large eyes of a hobbit and the sombre mood. I would not have changed it. It was true from the moment i laid my eyes on it.

Thank you exotica...In my mind that is the way I saw him also I just had some issues with the proportions of some of the features! Also welcome to the WC Digital ! ;o)

I have not painted much and have been so darn busy with other things, but I sure miss it.

This may be the thing that gets me going...Wonderful job!!!
