It's Drama Hobbit week! Can't Post

I found this funny anecdote from author Cory Doctorow:

Quote
I did a signing in Austin. And I think it was also on a For the Win tour. And a guy came up, and I said, “So what can I write in your book?” And he said, “Drama hobbit.” And I said, “Drama hobbit?” And he said, “Yeah, drama hobbit.” And I was like, “Really?” And he was like, “Drama hobbit.” And so I drew this “drama hobbit,” a hobbit that was very dramatic — a little guy with a pointy hat and pointy ears and furry feet and a kind of knife, and he had drama lines coming out of him, which in hindsight probably looked a bit like stink lines.

And I handed the book to him and he said, “What’s that?” and I said, “It’s a drama hobbit.” And he said, “No, no, no. Draw Mohammed.” It was “Draw Mohammed Week,” and it was during the Danish cartoon thing. But so I’ve always wanted to do a “Drama Hobbit Week” where everybody draws the most dramatic hobbits they can, but I’ve yet to convince anyone else that it would be a good idea.

Anyone feel like riding to the challenge and drawing a "drama hobbit"?
Quality of execution is probably not the issue here; it should be a participation thing , I think. That's why I posted on Main, not Fan Art.

It's such a cute and creative picture! I can totally picture Sam saying these, I know he wanted to make Gollum into mincemeat from the getgo. Tongue

Excuse my demented drawing style( and demented humour) [In reply to] Can't Post

And Bilbo's Vulcan ears.
This is an alteration of my favourite Shakespeare quote from Macbeth, 'You should be women, yet your beards forbid me to interpret that you are so."
Also, I doubt Bilbo ever met Dis. Crazy

PS how do you get the image to appear within the post rather than as an attachment?

Oh well, hope its worth the surprise of needing to opern the file Unsure

Oh, and about the attaching the image [In reply to] Can't Post

The only thing I could find is this, from the TORn 201:

Quote
2.20 How do I add a picture to a post? There are several ways to add a picture to your post. You may upload a picture stored on your PC as an attachment (See 2.21 below) or you may link to an image on your own website if you have one, or to a free image hosting service such as http://photobucket.com/ or http://villagephotos.com. To link to a picture on your own website or to a free hosting service, Insert the image URL by cutting and pasting the URL your hosting site provides for you into your post, clicking on the picture icon on the Advanced Editor toolbar and pasting the URL into the box provided, or using image tags using the Basic Editor (See [Get Markup Help]). Please do not “hot-link” directly to a picture on another internet site. See the Terms of Service rules for “netiquette” for more information on hot-linking. If you absolutely *must* direct people to a picture on another site, please do it by inserting a link that will take people to the picture on the site. That way the site owner gets ‘hits’ for their site.

A junior entry [In reply to] Can't Post

..by my daughter.
Not wanting adventures, Bilbo falls back on being dramatically ill (in fact he has a certificate to show that he is a Drama Hobbit). But Gandalf is not fooled....
