Screencap of the Day - At Bilbo's Door Can't Post


You can find the full-sized image HERE.

I had it in my head that this image was based on one of John Howe or Alan Lee's paintings, but Google doesn't back me up on that. Either way, it's become one of the more iconic images from the movies, translated into bookends and wall plaques and even a cake or two.

So...

1. What do you think about the look of Gandalf?
2. I think this image very cleverly reminds us of the scale of Hobbits. Do you think the filmmakers did enough (or too much) to explain the short stature of Hobbits to the movie-firster audience?
3. I love the Frame Cap Library because we get to stop and look at all the little details on set. Like that birdhouse behind Gandalf that I've never noticed before. Any favorite details in this image?
4. Any other thoughts or comments (that aren't about pieAngelic)?

Thanks to everyone who participated this week!
