Halflings by JonHodgson Halflings by JonHodgson

Whilst I'm hard at work on art for the new LOTR tabletop game from Cubicle 7 I've scratched together enough free time to make a piece or two for myself.

Artrage, tiny bit of Photoshop and Painter.

I love the look of trees like that, like fangorn forest.
The painter brushes look so real...

Wonderful textures, shapes, and shades. Shame that i didn't sympathize too much with the little guys.

Wohooo! You are exactly the right illustrator for a Tolkien game. Your involvement takes away any of the doubts I've had about buying it when it arrives.

Your style is mundane and fantastic at the same time, which fits a living fantasy world like middle earth just fine.

You're welcome! Your hobbits are clearly neither dwarves nor children. They are simply hobbits. Well done.

Oh wow, that's awesome. Great sense of atmosphere. The hobbits look nice and realistic. I like how they're neither super cute nor gross and ugly.

Love it, they look less than relaxed, they are trying but the bleak feel of the land is not helping.

Great piece.

I thoroughly love that texture you have worked in the piece, and how it works so well with the unrefined areas. I love the characters as well. At first, their colouring and situation reminded me of WWI Tommies in the trenches, waiting for something to happen.

I love how the limbs disappear into the misty textured background. It's still amazing to me how awesome you make artrage look. ;) I can't get a feel for it myself, so I bow to your skillz.

I just finished rewatching the movie LOTR 10 minutes ago. How's that for timing? :D
I always love the way you draw trees. But these little hobbits seem a bit far from home, don't they?

Expert timing! :)
Hopefully they will make it to wherever they are going, and back again.

You speed demon! :D Turned out great. (It would make a great print imo)

Do you use textures at all, or is all that AR?
