"Bilbo Teaches Sam His Letters" Can't Post

I enjoy creating fan-art of the LOTR characters for fun. I started this piece originally for the annual "Tolkien_Forever" Hall of Fire party, and afterwards decided it needed more detail (sometimes its hard to know when to stop) so this is the final version. The idea was to show Bilbo encouraging both Sam and Frodo to read. Sam has a "primer" in the Commn Tongue, or Westron, while Frodo is reading a poem written in Elvish. I make the original line drawings in pencil, then scan them and add them together in a layered file. Then I add the shading in Photoshop. I wanted it to have a peaceful, homey mood with the fireplace and the lamps lit.
I have the drawing in its entirety and two closeups. I haven't tried adding images to this forum before, so I hope this works, and I hope you enjoy the illustration (and the close up views.)
