Bilbo Baggins in bagend by breathing2004 Bilbo Baggins in bagend by breathing2004
"In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.
It had a perfectly round door like a porthole, painted green, with a shiny yellow brass knob in the exact middle. The door opened on to a tube-shaped hall like a tunnel: a very comfortable tunnel without smoke, with panelled walls, and floors tiled and carpeted, provided with polished chairs, and lots and lots of pegs for hats and coats – the hobbit was fond of visitors. The tunnel wound on and on, going fairly but not quite straight into the side of the hill – The Hill, as all the people for many miles round called it – and many little round doors opened out of it, first on one side and then on another. No going upstairs for the hobbit: bedrooms, bathrooms, cellars, pantries (lots of these), wardrobes (he had whole rooms devoted to clothes), kitchens, dining-rooms, all were on the same floor, and indeed on the same passage. The best rooms were all on the left-hand side (going in), for these were the only ones to have windows, deep-set round windows looking over his garden, and meadows beyond, sloping down to the river.
- J. R. R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

OMG……but I think it would be a bit better, if there is a mark made by Gandalf on Bilbo's door:D (Big Grin)

You know I one heard a story about Prof. Tolkien. It goes like this:

 

Prof. Tolkien was working late on night grading papers when he came a across a blank sheet of paper. He sat there a moment wondering which student he should grade as failing because of this, but decided it must have slipped in by accident. The question then became "what should be done with the blank page?" The professor set it aside and continued to grade papers but the blank page continued to nag at the back of his mind. Something within him wished for him to go back to that blank page and fill it with....something.

 

Finally professor Tolkien went back to the blank page, he stared at it for a moment and then began to write "In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit...

#drawls# Your art... it's just so amazing...
I love how you're combining both the book and the film here (assuming the second blond dwarf at the front is Kili), and the style... wow.
What does it say on the front door mat? And what's in the 'speech scroll' at the top? (I'm not exactly proficient in Middle Earth's languages)
