The Great Adventure by *greensap

The suggester said: "The Hobbit movie has been announced already, and it is good to recapitulate the story quickly. In this picture you can find the entire journey there and back again. As Tolkien said: "It is a dangerous business going out your front door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to."

Also suggested by many people too long to list!

I've loved this painting since I saw it come through in the #tolkien group, and this morning I wake to find a dA parcel on my doorstep with this framed print inside!! a Christmas present from my sister ~P1pp1N. It is just beautiful. Our daughter is due to be born in 1.5 weeks and it will look perfect in her room, much cooler than most nursery pictures ;) can't wait to read the book to her :)

Heya, I commented on this long ago, but now I'm thinking of buying a large poster-size print of this once I can scratch enough money together, because as I said before.... this is just so so amazing. :-)

You Can always download it for free, if you, or one of your mates, has a large format printer. ...Hey! how about a picture of George, floating above Silbury Hill, he still lives in my mind ... :D

Wow, that's generous of you. But no, there's no one I know with a printer like that. But I gotta say man, you lost me with George floating above Silbury Hill. Who the hell is George!? :D

Wow, this is beautiful! I love the way that you can start off in any part of the picture and still be able to be drawn through the entire story. Each part just seems to flow right into the next one...
