the world is ahead . by megatruh the world is ahead . by megatruh

I'm sorry for this Hobbit spam, but this would be the last, I promise! ;) I just want to continue a bit from the last scene of the unexpected journey, before they get to Beorn ~ maybe they rest and Gandalf starts talking about plans.

I referenced the scenery from old NatGeo mag, I cant get my mountains to look realistic though *w* maybe that's just not my style. But this series sure teach me how to draw mountains. :iconlazeplz:

this would look amazing as a bookmark for the hobbit book.

Beautiful. I can see the world ahead, laid out to look at and dream of exploring come the next day. A lot about the Hobbit is about the journey in itself, and this picture shows it. There is such a beautiful wide world out here, behind the mountains and under the sea of clouds, hidden only by the horizon and waiting to be travelled. :)

this is the best work I have ever seen (I means which touches my soul and which I personally love for representing the perfect atmosphere-color-plot-detailed image)
I am in a great true love with it, THANK YOU so much.
please, do more mountains :)

are you kidding? the mountains are one of my favorite parts. it's an awesome piece. the only thing is i think you could have focused on the party just a bit more. they're hard to notice at first.

This is really beautifully done, I love how the sky and mountains colour shades all blend in and we see the tip of the wizard's hat poking up from below as he sits in the group, well done on this piece! :)

This is great, tolkienesque like few other pieces of art.

Great piece here. I love the purple hue. SPOILER ALERT: Do not read if you have not seen Desolation of Smaug. SPOILER ALERT: You have been warned. FINAL SPOILER ALERT: Do not read past this.
SPOILER: I really wish Beorn had had a larger part in the film. I am glad that he did at least have a part, unlike Bombadil, the Barrow Wight, The Grey Company (Rangers), Beregond and many others in the LOTR films. However, this is a single book split into 3 movies, so if he hadn't had a part then there would have been hell to pay. We'll see a lot more of him in the Battle of Five Armies in the next film it is to be hoped. Many parts of this film were compressed and others expanded generously, and generally for the better, but still there's ever room to gripe.
Sorry for not giving your painting the proper critique it deserves. I just saw the film and am kind of high on it at the moment. Please forgive me.
megatruh Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2014
haha that's ok XD
I also hate the fact Beorn has so little part in the movie :/ and then there was this.. unnecessary romance plot D:

about Bombadil though, I think for those who hasn't read book before watch LOTR, he would be kind of absurd and unexplainable XD that's why they cut him out.
