Hey There! I'm making a seminar presentation regarding the Hobbit and the character devolopment of Bilbo into a hero. I was wondering if I could use this in my powerpoint. It's a completely offline thing and I would love to use your awesome artwork to really make it pop out.

Most of the time yes, but it really depends on how the image ends up.

Thanks for the comment and sorry for the late late replies...

I was just wondering since, I thought it was an unwritten rule that reproductions were always signed on the bottom left side of a picture.

The first thing that comes to mind when I think of the Misty Mountains is the song by Led Zeppelin. :D This is a lovely painting! :D

Excellent work...I especially like the attention to detail concerning the dwarves hoods....and it may just be me, but below Gandalf, about midway on the mountains, I see the profile of a skull.....

I love this - I saw the WIP a few days ago, and maybe I didn't read the description close enough because I didn't realise it wasn't finished.

Just one criticism: if it were my painting, I might tone Gandalf down, because he looks a little *too* mythical/god-like for my tastes. Maybe it's the way his horse is almost jumping off the edge of a mountainpeak.
