"In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit."
Estava com esta ideia na cabeça há quase três semanas. E quando decidi dedicar uma semana inteira aos livros do Tolkien, eu sabia que tinha que desenhar algo relacionado com O Senhor dos Anéis. E por isso desenhei uma casa Hobbit.
Comecei ontem à noite. A ideia era pintar durante o dia de hoje, com luz natural, para que pudesse filmar... Mas entusiasmei-me e comecei logo a usar a Liquid Masking Film, e depois com as Ecolines (aguarela líquida). Ao início tentei que as cores fossem menos vibrantes...
Há muito tempo que não usava Ecolines (anos!!) e este desenho relembrou-me o quanto as gosto de usar.
I've been with this idea in my head for almost three weeks. And when I decided to dedicate a full week to the books of Tolkien I knew that I wanted to draw something related with Lord of the Rings. And it had to be home, or my take on a hobbit hole.
I started it last night. I had the intentions to colour it today, with daylight, so I could record the process. But I got carried away and started to work with the liquid masking film, and then the Ecolines (liquid watercolour). At first I tried to keep the colours very light (has I always do) but I also end up with very colourful and bright colours.
I hadn't used Ecolines for a long time (a few years to be more exact) and I miss them a lot.

Ecolines are brand of liquid watercolour, that dries really fast and can be dilute in water and mixed together. I used water brush pens (which are brushes with a water deposit) to lay the colours. I didn't the colours to be pure, so I diluted them in water.

But even before using the ecolines I used the Liquid Masking Film to block out some areas while I lay the basic colours. (a quick note about using liquid masking film - the one I have can only be applied with a brush. With this one I only use cheap brushes, because with time the masking fluid will ruin the brush.)

I used the Copic markers for some details like the flowers, the bird, berries and the pillow. For the rocks I wanted to have some grey colour, but instead of picking a straight grey I choose YG91 - that is a mix of yellowish green with the name of Putty and I think it work very well for the rocks because it blends better.
Esta foi a minha interpretação duma casa Hobbit, uma em que até nem me importava de viver. É claro que seria de madeira, pois a ser um Hobbit seria duma família modesta (apenas as famílias ricas usam outros materiais - como tijolo). E amarelo porque queria que fosse uma casa feliz e acolhedora.
This is my take on a Hobbit hole, or one that I wouldn't mind living in. It would be on wood, because I would be a modest Hobbit (not a very rich one). Painted in yellow because it would be joyfull and cosy space.
