    It’s fun to see how Tolkien himself thought about Bag End

    PJ did a very good job in bringing Tolkiens drawn vision to screen as well as the written.

    I agree with the above post. He did a great job. This drawing looks really close to the movie version.

    Interesting how the picture bends like the walls.

    He’s a good artist, just not much scale, unless Bag End’s ceilings are supposed to be high like we have today.

    It makes sense for the place to be big; remember, Bag End was the hobbit equivalent of a mansion.

    well, i certainly think PJ did a good job recreating the house itself; its very….cozy, despite the size.

    It’s so great in black and white; just think of how it would look with color!

    I don’t think Bilbo can reach the door handle either. It’s big, but cute in a cozy kinda way! ^_^

    That is amazing. It is cool to see Tolkien’s perspective on the different areas of his world.

    @Mithrandir: I think it goes the other way around: Tolkien -> Howe -> movies.
