Yes, there are two examples in Rateliff's "The History of the Hobbit" [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't have any way of posting them just now, but you can find them in Part One, "Mr. Baggins", after page 216 in the illustrations. See Plates III and V: "Gandalf on the doorstep at Bag-End." and "The Three Trolls are turned to Stone." The Gandalf revealed to us is not exactly inspiring, as the human figure was not Tolkien's artistic strong point.

I'll try to post them when I get a chance, if you're still interested.
