This is a place where I used to live as a child. Its ancient woodland called "Old Roar Gill". All summer me & my friends would run in the woods, splash thru the little stream & in my mind this was the world of "Little Grey men" by BB.

I like this picture of Gandalf but, I think the depiction of Bilbo is a bit...odd ? It doesn't gel right for me.

A bit small for a full-grown hobbit.

Bilbo's arm is very... wrong. The belt buckle thing and the split in the west doesn't add up with the rest of the body. No shape of waist or buttocks. Looks more like a front, doesn't it?

"Definition of front
a :a person, group, or thing used to mask the identity or true character or activity of the actual controlling agent"

I thought this was the Hobbit, not Breaking Bad Shocked

All except for the cellophane wrapped sticks on the lower left. What are those flat things stacked in the trough at the back? Is it crunchy? Can we eats it?

I'm pretty sure this place has been featured in these pages before, but she's developed the concept a bit.  It sort of pulls you out of the fantasy world to have a hobbit door open directly on a bed, but she make the point that the view out the front door is so amazing you just want to lay in bed and look out over the landscape, so we'll let her get away with it.  These will be rental properties with a communal kitchen in a structure that feels like an English pub.

I thought it was nicely captured art. Once you put the thought "dragon's eye" in your head it works perfectly.
