Spiders of Mirkwood by TobyCarr Spiders of Mirkwood by TobyCarr
"Spiders of Mirkwood", Photoshop, Cintiq 12W tablet

This is the scene from The Hobbit, where Bilbo comes to the rescue of the Dwarfs, who have been strung up by the unusually large spiders that inhabit Mirkwood. In the book, Bilbo is invisible, but that doesn't make for a good painting, so I bended the truth a little.

Accurate spiders too. Web spinners have large abdomens and thin, stick-like legs.

I saw your art in my Hobbit magazine, googled your name, and conveniently your DA came up! Now I can follow your work.

Amazing work. :) ill have to consider getting a print of one of these, because you capture them perfectly.

Thank you very much for your kind comments. Yeah, I was really excited to get in the Hobbit magazine. It came about because of a competition I had entered through Deviantart. It still hasn't really dawned on me that my work is in the Hobbit magazine. Can't wait for the movie

Yeah, but not as creepy as the spiders painted by Tolkien artist Ted Nasmith. Those spider illustrations actually make me wanna grawl into a fetal position and scream like a witness of a brutal homocide! O_O;
