Still fairly fluish here, but feeling well enough to post the drawing I scanned yesterday before it hit me full force. If my calculations are correct, one more post will catch us up in drawings of the day and the current post can appear late next week in its proper place.
This drawing is here because as far as I can recall I have never drawn a hobbit before. Maybe, I suppose, back in my tabletop roleplaying game days I may have done a sketch for somebody’s halfling character sheet, but if it ever happened it was a very long time ago. It was very odd to see this little guy appear– he was a hobbit from the first line I drew, though it took me a while to realize it.
Behind him is an interesting naga, this one drawn with a fully conventional human upper half (except for the horns), instead of the more snakelike head and neck I usually draw for one of those people. I don’t know what makes him sorcerous, except perhaps for the position of his hands which might suggest that he is casting a spell. If so, the unsuspecting hoodie hobbit might be in for an unpleasant surprise. Or maybe a nice one– a naga sorcerer could be sneaking up behind you to cast a benevolent spell, but somehow stories don’t usually seem to work that way.
