Smaug and invisible Bilbo!
The Goblin King and a pretty pissed-off Thorin
I actually enjoyed looking at these images more than watching the bloated, self-indulgent movie. All images are from the (digital) pen of the absurdly talented Matty Long – who, for the sake of full disclosure, happens to be my brother. But I wanted to share these with everyone because a) they’re fantastic and deserve the biggest possible audience, and b) I used to beat him up when we were kids, and so I figure I owe him one.
More wonderful Hobbit illustrations can be found on Matty’s website.
