Thank You: Bag End Hobbit Door by AinuLaire Thank You: Bag End Hobbit Door by AinuLaire
TheOneRing.net, in October/November of last year, wanted to send a thank you letter to Peter Jackson, the folks at Weta, and the rest of the crew for fighting so hard for 'The Hobbit' films. Last year there were a lot of problems with MGM, the NZ Equity actor's union, and other hub bub, and folks such as PJ, Fran Walsh, Richard Taylor, and others fought really hard not only to see the films happen, but to keep the films in NZ.

I was asked to do the cover artwork and some doodles throughout the letter. Seeing as how 'The Hobbit' starts at Bilbo's front door, I thought it appropriate to start the letter with said door- and I included the 'sign' that Gandalf scratched into the door in the chapter. They did not describe the sign so I did a little rune that looked like a B- for burglar, of course ;)

The doodles throughout the letter are food items mentioned through 'An Unexpected Party', the first chapter of The Hobbit. The end of the letter is a drawing of Tolkien's Lonely Mountain and Smaug as seen on Thror's map.

I could not post this until the letter was sent to Peter Jackson and Weta, and while it took a while, I was given permission to post this today, so I assume said letter is in route XD It was made public on the message board, at the least. Not sure if it will be on the front page or not.

Bag End was based off what screencaps I had of it in the film and was rendered with prismacolor pencils. Finished early 2011.

Well, me too. I like Rivendell the most. But I would like to have a house in the Shire, where I could go on my holdiays, and have a potato-patch :)
