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.

Lovely, it captures the feeling of the Hobbit-elves so well! And I love the bookt-true details like the blue hood with the silver tassle! :)

This is a scene I still lucidly remember reading. The whimsical colors really do it justice. Having not seen it illustrated before, it was really cool to happen by this.
