The Shire: Bag End by shadowdark3 The Shire: Bag End by shadowdark3

Previous Image:


First image of the Shire! I used this picture to practice with blur effects and experimenting with a smoother, more rounded feel. In my previous pictures, you may have noticed that I left most of the shadows with hard edges. I'd like to hear any thoughts on which method you prefer.

I ended up including Twilight in this picture, being pulled along by some random pony (if you really want to assign him a role, we can pretend it's one of the dwarves that came to accompany Bilbo on his journey to Rivendel).

The next picture is probably going to be several panels, along with some dialogue. I'm going to do my best to keep it looking good without big ugly blocks of text cluttering up the image. And I promise I won't do any wonky skewed panels ;P.

Oh, and it's wallpaper sized, just in case you like it enough to plaster on your desktop. ;)

Massive 9600x5400 Version (no edging shadow--let me know if you want it added).

Oh, almost forgot: credit to :iconswivel-zimber: for the cloud vectors!

I can only wish I had the patience to try backgrounds like this with my pencils! ^ ^;;

Beautiful job! (And the ponies turned out cute as well....Though it would be interesting to see the original cast of LOTR and The Hobbit as ponies.... ^ ^;;; )

This look like it could be cover art for a folk album.
