This series of The Hobbit character sketches comes right in time for the movie's highly anticipated release next week.
Artist Erik B. Krenz created The Hobbit character sketches of Bilbo, Gandalf, Smaug and Gollum. Krenz is a freelance designer out of Minneapolis and the sketches look pencil drawn.
The Hobbit is the latest movie based on books by J.R. R. Tolkien and is the first in a three part film adaptation of the novel The Hobbit. The original novel was written in 1937. The Hobbit is directed and co-written by Peter Jackson, who also directed the epic Lord of the Rings trilogy.
Maybe the most creepy of all these sketches is Gollum crouched in the shadows of a cave. His head is turned toward the viewer with his eyes glowing.
