Gandalf enters hobbiton

This illustration was designed for the march 2014 issue for the tolkien society’s magazine Amon hen. It is based on the beginning moments of the hobbit were Gandalf enters hobbiton. I wanted a dynamic but detailed effect! So i tailored the design towards a Beardsley style! This coupled with my own gave the image an aesthetic that was i feel rather strong! I was also looking to have it as a framed work, being that the imaged framed itself, this would have a windowing effect on the design as though the viewer is looking into a moment! Monotone was also chosen to lock the image into one solid design concept!
