Bilbo PDF Painting Guide

Hi Dear Viewers!

I have another PDF painting guide for you – this time for Bilbo Baggins from The Lord of the Rings: Journeys in Middle-earth, which you can grab here!

For Bilbo I really wanted to take the opportunity to introduce some red, so as you can see I went with quite a cold, dark red for the waistcoat, complimented by the paler green tone of the cloak.

I also toyed with the idea of doing a full-on glowing sword but in the end decided for just a subtle shift in colour temperature instead.

Bilbo Complete-4

Anyway I do hope you enjoy the guide.  In September I’m planning to cover the last two core-set heroes (Gimli and Beravor) as a video and PDF guide respectively.  I’ve then got the Villains of Eriador to get cracking on with!

Happy painting!
