Concerning Hobbits:- two loose sketches/Hobbit farmers.

The Shire is described as a small but beautiful and fruitful land, beloved by its inhabitants. The Hobbits had an extensive agricultural system in the Shire but were not industrialised. The landscape included small pockets of forest (again similar to the English countryside). Various supplies were produced in the Shire, including cereals, fruit, wood and pipe-weed.

Couple of very loose sketches/doodles using various materials paint/tippex/felt tip pens/Biro/chalk or whatever was to hand on paper/textured board. I often work in this manner just to get initial ideas down on paper, before going into greater detail on fully finished works.
