The Road Back Home by ShaylynnAnn The Road Back Home by ShaylynnAnn
This is the second in a series of three drawings depicting various versions of Tolkien's "Roads go ever on and on" poem/walking song. Part One: [link] Part Three: [link]

This is probably my favorite version of this hobbit song. It's the second verse in the poem as related in "The Hobbit." Like Biblo, I appreciate adventure-- if for nothing else than it makes you appreciate your own mundane and altogether lovely life.

I drew Bilbo coming home to the Shire from his adventures in the East. Tolkien painting some awesome paintings for "The Hobbit" and I tried to kinda-sorta copy his version of Hobbiton and the Bag End hill.

And yes, I know he oughtn't be wearing a red shirt and that he should have his travel cloak and whatnot. Just taking artistic liscense. :)

And the scans shows the buckled paper only too clearly. :(

I love the series concept and this one is particularly lovely. It reminds me of Bilbo's Last Song. Have you seen that book? Breathtaking.

Thank you!! I haven't heard of it-- I know there is a poem by the same name, right? *goes to Google it*

Ooooooh, SHINY. I must see if our library system has it. Thanks for telling me about it!

I really like all of 3 of these. You did an excellent job. The drawings look nice. They are simple, yet colorful and detailed. I also really liked the choice of poem. I have always been a fan of that one. :)
