The artist who posted this on deviantart.com is an absolute genius! She did this in one week three hours each day! I think she definitely does these characters justice! She should go work for weta ;)

But could you please provide the link to the original artist, so we can see more of her work? Plus, artists tend to like it when they are given credit for their work...Wink

Good point... [In reply to] Can't Post

A quick search over there reveals it is Yin Yuming, and here is a link to the artist's gallery on deviantart.

I'm wondering... [In reply to] Can't Post

This is excellent work. I'm wondering how she produced it, since it is very 'photographic' and catches the expressions of the characters very well...

Except that in an official poster perhaps Thorin should be bigger? Possibly Galadriel is a little too big?

I like the look of the trollish(?) monsters at the top, though they were not in the film.

I think the illustrator is Chinese, isn't she (or he)? The Chinese have always had a talent for very detailed work.

gender [In reply to] Can't Post

I went with what I thought based on the limited amount I had seen, but it can be hard sometimes in general image searches to differentiate gender online so I beg forgiveness for errors Smile

Posting a link: [In reply to] Can't Post

You can just copy/paste:

http://yinyuming.deviantart.com/art/THE-HOBBIT-whole-vision-325216616

Or, to make it clickable, type:

{url "http://yinyuming.deviantart.com/art/THE-HOBBIT-whole-vision-325216616"}Link to picture{/url}

Replacing the {} for [].

So it looks like:

I just thought i would mention it just in case the artist comes on here and is thinking, but im a dude, lol.

Are you a woman yourself? I normally think people are guys on the internet - other than on TORn. I don't know why i think that really other than maybe i just assume they are because i am! Crazy

Gorgeous! [In reply to] Can't Post

I absolutely love this! Very well done. I wish we'd have had an official poster like this.

There's a sad sort of clanging from the clock in the hall and the bells in the steeple, too.
And up in the nursery an absurd little bird is popping out to say coo-coo (coo-coo, coo-coo).

Tis a beautiful picture and really detailed [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't know much about art techniques, but looking at this and the artist's blog, I am wondering if he is combining photographic and pencil drawn elements digitally, in much the same way as Alan Lee did for the drawings in the closing credits of ROTK. Whichever it is, it is still a great talent....one which I admire and envy in equal measure, having no artistic ability myself.
