|The Great Goblin
I did several images for the Hobbit anniversary calendar.
While I would certainly reserve a more imaginative treatment for the Great Goblin at present, I was happy with Thorin's sword, but wish now I'd done morethan just copy a Viking blade... His chain mail tank top is rather ridiculous though... I was so intent on not spoiling the view of that wiry dwarven shoulder that I threw historical caution to the winds. Silly me.
The torches in the background are okay, though.
