Elvish Feast in Mirkwood by ullakko Elvish Feast in Mirkwood by ullakko
Get this as a print from my Society6 shop!
Also available as framed prints, mugs, tote bags and pillows. (:


* * *


Scene based on Tolkien's novel The Hobbit, chapter 8, "Flies and Spiders" where the Dwarves and Bilbo see glimpses of the elvish feast, but are never able to participate because the lights go out and the elves disappear whenever they try and approach the party.

Done with watercolor and ink. Scanned weirdly, so little adjustments in Photoshop.

Having just read the Hobbit comic this is pretty fresh in my mind. I love the harsh contrast between the elves and the rest.
