The Hobbit Shoes by magna-est-veritas The Hobbit Shoes by magna-est-veritas
There may come a day where I stop painting shoes, but it is not this day! This day, I bring you awesome.

Shoe 1 (outer): Gandalf with Thorin's map, Bilbo's door, and one of my favorite Gandalf quotes.

Shoe 1 (inner): Bilbo with Sting, the Ring, and a looming Gollum

Shoe 2 (inner): My own take on Smaug (a combo of Tolkien's sketches and a crocodile) with sparkly jeweled treasure and a tiny Bilbo trying to hide from his sight

SHoe 2 (outer): Thorin Oakenshield with the Arkenstone and a partial quote from the AUJ prologue ("It was a sickness of the mind, and where sickness thrives, bad things will follow") foreshadowing BoFA.

Shoe spine: script on the One Ring

*Note, individual pictures of each panel are on my tumblr: cronesdistaff@tumblr.com

Done in Tulip fabric paint and waterproof ink

Yes! So very cool, I think a lot of people would like to put you in their closet and make you paint their shoes 24-7 lol. Sorry that's mean, but hopefully you get what I'm trying to say. Your amazing. -So how much did you charge to do these? I might be able to commission you one day...

Hopefully the closets would be nicer than mine. xD Thank you! And I've sent you a note explaining my prices. One day soon I will make a commission info page. I just need more pretty pictures for examples. Alas.

Well, I had to pick and choose, so I went with more a book route, and that's significantly less Azog-y. Maybe someone will commission a nice Azog pair next time. ^^ Thank you!

Thank you! I tried to make them go together with color and composition as much as they stood out on their own in subject matter, if that makes any sense. xD Appreciate it!
