I did my best orz. They’re supposed to be cats. Thought it would be fun to draw them like this. I’ll do more characters if time permits…school has been busy. I’m also working on more Chrome comic, so stay tune for that! For now, enjoy some more Hobbit stuff.
"…The water was swollen both with the melting of the snows at the approach of summer, and with the daylong rain; but they crossed with some difficulty, and pressed forward, as evening fell, on the last stage of their journey. This was much as it had been before, except that the company was smaller, and more silent; also this time there were no trolls.

Frodo: You know, some people are beginning to wonder about you, Uncle. They think you’re becoming odd.
Baby dragons are essentially winged, fire-breathing cats.

There’s something very English about him. There’s a sort of stoicism and decency that’s innate in him. And he’s also slightly eccentric.
I think that when you want to find something more you look for why a writer shifted an idea. That gives you a clue to what they needed from that moment. There was an early draft of The Hobbit whereby names and characters were different. Smaug was called something else, for example. He was known as Pryftan. I think at one point, Thorin was called Gandalf. And of course, Gandalf means “Elf of the Wand.” It’s kind of weird for Thorin. So he’d obviously deliberately changed the name because he wanted that name to represent something, as all the names do. And the translation of Thorin is “Darer” (Old Norse) So Thorin is the one that would dare to reclaim the kingdom.
