Hobbit Commission by MrTuke Hobbit Commission by MrTuke
Better run for the hills, Orcs, well and beyond that of Mordor at least!

This was a commission i did last year for a Gentleman who I met at a convention the year before. Asides from general Medieval Lore and Fantasy, he's an avid fan of the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings and collects Replica weapons from those movies. He basically wanted me to design an image based on the poses he provided, so that he could have it painted onto a wall, and then have the corresponding weapons he bought mounted where they are being held as depicted here.

The Dwarves were based faithfully to the recent Hobbits trilogy, left to right being Balin, Dwalin, Nori and Fili. The only addition being that Dwalin would have Orc-like skulls and a tartan kilt attached on his person. Red blood smothering them was also insisted, which admittedly had me pausing mid-way through sipping a coffee at the time of reading his feedback. :P

Overall it was a fun project to work on and to work on a larger scale did take my breath away i will admit. I'm hoping to see the final spray painted wall soon. I know my jaw will drop.

The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien, WingNut Films, New Line Cinema, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer et all. Art by me. Done in inks and Photoshop.

P.s. Commissions is quite back up and running with me persay at this moment in time as the comic duties are coming first. But by all means note me or email me at tstuke@hotmail.com if you're interested. Best wishes -TomT

Cheers, man. :)

I'm picturing them having the blood of elves on them LOL since Orc blood is black. And nothing you say will change that! ;)

Haha! Well it could belong to humans, elves, hobbits or folks travelling by car through Middle Earth. :P

But yeah, i was thinking why not black, blue, purple, green or something Orc-like but the chap insisted red, so yeah. Mind you, he also got a version without the blood as well for reference sake.

Cheers :)

Someone should have told Fili to leave the butterknife at home.

Heheh! It's the client you'd have to convince as he's the one looking for the spot to hang his gear. :)

Cheers, buddy!

Pff! Silly him.
He should know well that dwarves are best armed with huge cannons!.. So that they can fire themselves into glorious battle!

And Gin-soaked, axe-wielding, little mad men rained down on those unfortunate orcs that day. :P

Sauron would've done well to make some huge umbrellas for his armies.
