Hahahahahaa- people walking. Thanks, Clerks II.

Cute drawing, though. I really dig the partial background thing going on there.

Aww, it's gorgeous. Wow. Really, the background does make it so much more individual and "fancy", although I wish I could come up with a better term than that XD

I LOVE the background here especially, and how nice to see something LotRish! And Sam, oh, how I adore Samwise. I like how the Shire is behind him, there, since Sam is Frodo's relinder of the Shire and of past happiness on the journey... Yep, illustrative it is. A

I know mentioning this makes me kind of petty, but isn't all unofficial art based on someone else's work fanart? That's how I've always looked at it, though of course if it illustrates something that happened in canon it is illustrative fanart then, unlike non-canonical or derivative art.

ah, well yes of course it's fanart, but it was kind of a tone i was going for. most of the time when i do fanart i don't make the effort to form a 'complete' picture. so to speak. i wanted to make the distinction that i was trying to flesh out this idea i had in my mind rather than just throwing some characters on paper like i usually do.
if any of that makes sense. i hope? ah, in any case i'm really pleased you liked the picture and thanks for your thoughts! :heart:

WELL WELL WELL. if you come over i'll just give ya the original. that way in future years after my brilliant and violent death by zeppelin crash (it will guarantee a lot of media coverage) the value of said drawing will go up like 20 fold and you can hock it on eBay or somefing.

(AN I'M SORRY I AIN'T CALLED YET, have been v. busy and i plan to give ya ring tommorrow. of course, if i call and you haven't seen this yet, reading it later will all seem very silly.)


(LOL the Silent Hill theme just came on, thought you'd like to know i'm ending this comment on STRUMMING MANDOLINS.)

Good gracious me, where have you been hiding a zeppelin for all these years?! And besides, I'd never hock an original on ebay (id keep it and have people pay admission to see it lol win-win situation, that)
No worries about phoning, ive been busy too with all manner of dentists and other unpleasantness...if nothing else I'll end up giving ya a ring at a more reasonable hour of today

WTF!! Girly, this is AMAZING! I know you're good, but holy shit! This is amazing! Like ... like, wow! I am completely floored by this.

The background is amazing, and I love the detail! Frodo looks all hawt n stuff, and Sam's all "OMG, Frodo!"

This is one of the most impressive things Ive seen you do lately.

YOU HAVE TO COLOR THIS OR I WILL PERISH.

I HAS YET TO RECEIVE IT. which bothers me, cause i ordered some shirts as well and i think they messed up my order AGAIN. (last time i tried to order a shirt, they never shipped it and claimed it was a glitch in their computers.) but since this seems to be happening again i am getting rather annoyed. when you ordered it, did they ship it to you, or did you just give my address as where to ship? i'd like to know if it's just ME that this seems to be happening to. :\

"Your order is being packaged and cannot be changed.
We have begun packaging your order for shipment. Changes can no longer be made to your order. Chances are, we have already shipped your order."

Thats what it says when I looked up the tracking number. It also said 13-16 days for delivery, and I ordered it Dec 14. Think I should say something?

The order number is: 609575 and my email is stephie.hobbs@gmail.com, if you need to, like, look it up or anything.

yea, that's what mine said the first time and they told me it was a glitch or some crap. i sent them an email, depending on what they say i'll bring this up. but since it's technically not my order you might want to do the same cause who knows. maybe they did ship. :\
