The Hall of the Mountain King by Deisi The Hall of the Mountain King by Deisi
Meh, quick color job. Not sure if I like it. But anyway.
Not actually in The Hobbit in print, but I'm sure it happened. With Bilbo sneaking around all over the Wood Elf castle, he had to have run into Legolas sooner or later. As much as I detest Orlando Bloom, I hope we see Legolas wandering around in the castle when they make the movie. No speaking parts, because the kid can't act, just him making an appearance.
I'm totally on an uploading spree. I need to reign myself in.
Props to whoever can tell me what composer was initially associated with the title "In the Hall of the Mountain King."

Well of course he had to run into Legolas. It was inavoideble. I'd love to read a fic where Bilbo states to Legolas that he passed by him invisibls*Snickers* I can just picture Legolas sputtering indignantly, well, make that suprised. Hmmm...I might have to write that.

Haha, I had that as part of a fic I was writing about Legolas' story leading up to the Council of Elrond... I have an illustration of it somewhere in my gallery.

Grieg? Edvard Grieg?

I admit, I had to look it up... but that song title was so familiar!!!

That's a really cool pic, I love how Bilbo is so ghostly in the corner there!

I always thought about that when I was reading The Hobbit. Legolas must've been around somewhere right?
Anyways, great job!

I cannot stress how much I LOVE this picture! I have pictured a similar scene. I also like that you have also drawn Legolas with dark hair. And I love Bilbo's adorable ghostly form.
