|Preliminary sketch for the Unexpected Party
There and Back Again - The Map of the Hobbit, by Brian Sibley, HarperCollinsPublishers, 1995
This sketch must have taken ages. I'm far too impatient to sit down and plot out so many details, but there was little choice. All the dwarves had to be playing the appropriate instruments, and everyone of course had to fit somehow. Not as much room for error and change as I am accustomed to.
