It’s dangerous to make comments about hobbits in the presence of Jo … she might go and commission some art for you.
This adorable comic is for a couple having a baby, who have been self-described as two dwarves who wish they were a hobbit and an elf. Thus, we have a dwarf-decorated crib with a hobbity dwarf on one side, and an elfin dwarf on the other.

“Tears, Gandalf. Tears and murder.”
Yes, this is related to a fic. No, I’m not going to tell you where to find it. Just be amused by poor Bilbo getting courting bouquets by two infamous dwarves, Dwalin and Thorin. Don’t worry, I’m sure it all turns out all right in the end, no murder required.
Flowers for Bilbo, 7″x5″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper, nfs (sold).
Above, you can see Bilbo’s worried expression and pink blush, and some of my carefully-researched flowers. I had to look up what most things actually looked like, though I did know how to draw Lily of the Valley already. Below, you can see it hanging out in a temporary frame, looking spiffy before it gets shipped off to its new home.

It’s another dwarf! Yes, I have every intention of drawing all 13 of them, eventually. Dori took approximately forever with his fancy hair and beard and all that, but I’m happy with the results. And of course, there’s a doily.
Tea With Dori, 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper.
Above, you can see the ridiculously complex hair & beard stylings of Dori the dwarf. Below, he’s hanging out in a frame, waiting to come home and share tea with you.

There’s something really fun about drawing parody dwarves, especially knowing there’s 13 of them to draw. Oin, brother of Gloin, is a rather old and cranky dwarf and a bit hard of hearing. He’s got a couple of hundred years on you and is therefore completely unimpressed with your angst about that big birthday milestone.
I made this for sort of an anti-over-the-hill card, because sometimes I get tired of hearing people worrying about turning 30, 40, 50, or whatever. Also, grumpy dwarf. Okay, mostly for the grumpy dwarf.
Oin Birthday, 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper, nfs (sold), but you can get him on a card in my Etsy shop.

I’m not sure at what point I equated the dwarves’ invasion of Bag End with Gaston’s proposal to Belle, muddy boots and all, but this is the result. This, and having that song about Gaston in my head for days, that is.
I used google to find a good image of Gaston with his boots up. Poor Bilbo, he looks as dismayed about Great-Grandmother Baggins’ table-runner as Belle did about her book.
Above, you can see the original scene of which mine is merely a parody. Below, you can see a totally random close-up of Thorin’s muddy boots.
