Sam Bosma’s ‘Hobbit’ Illustrations Are Nothing Short of Awesome [Art]

Illustrator Sam Bosma’s got one series of Hobbit pieces to rule them all over on his blog. His ongoing attempt to capture the trolls and elves of Middle-earth has spawned some soft, frisky depictions of J.R.R. Tolkien’s fictional beings, applying some original costume designs and playing around with their personalities.
The one-on-one confrontation between Bilbo and Gollum stands out as one of his best.
You’ll see some shades of the 1977 animated movie in it, but Bosma’s Bilbo shows the stress of his adventures a bit more.

Additionally, Bosma has been diligent about sharing his developing sketches of the Tolkien-verse, outlining from scratches and loose designs to full figures how he brings his concepts together. He plans on doing a total of twelve works, too, by the time all is said and done, so he’s still got a few finished products left to churn out. Check out some of what he’s done so far below, and sound off with what you’d like to see him draw before he’s done.
