A Little Tokien Book by TRAVALE A Little Tokien Book by TRAVALE
I made a fake 'little golden book' of The Hobbit! Acryla Gouache on watercolour paper and then edited in photoshop to appear as a book cover

There's a few more paintings on my tumblr and I talk about why I decided to do this project [link]

Hi, Just came across your work.  Im currently looking for Artist to join my team to create original art for book covers.  I love your style and think it will really work with what im after.  Please have a look at the webpage it explains the projects and lists the books were covering.  Hope to hear from you soon.

Did you make it by hand or by computer?
I like this version, you did a really good version of Bilbo.
This is how I imagined him.

It's painted by hand, then the text was done on a computer and it was photoshoped onto a golden book I scanned in.
