And Back Again by arisuonpaa And Back Again by arisuonpaa
There are many paintings of Gandalf and Bilbo starting a journey, so I wanted to paint one where they are returning home. I'm still searching for my style by trying to keep things loose and leaving distinct brush strokes.

This painting started as a test for a paint program I've been making, but most of it was still done in Corel Painter. Some adjustments were done with Photoshop. The hobbit hole was referenced from photos taken on the Lord of the Rings movie set.

wish I could paint like this... your brush strokes are loose and free-flowing giving the piece a realistic feel. Super work man

I love how rustic and simple you made Bag End look. It's a pleasant contrast to the large cinematographic vistas so commonly depicted. This feels like something you can accidentally stumble upon in the woods, like a lonely farmhouse. Very evocative. great work!

Poor Bilbo's garden, so overgrown! That must be hard for a hobbit!

Your style is already awesome and if this is a test, I'd love to see what you'll make when you have gotten used to the program :)
