Pencil on tissue paper.

This is a character sketch for the dwarf in the background of the Unexpected party painting from the seventies. His lower body can't be seen in the actual painting, but if you look close enough you will find him.

Greg dug into his archives to find the few remaining Tolkien sketches that he owned in 2000 when Spiderwebart began to design the Tolkien art of The Brothers Hildebrandt art book, published by Watson-Guptill. This sketch may have some tears in it, but that in no way takes away from its beauty. The computer image does not do this drawing justice.

This sketch was Signed by Greg Hildebrandt and Tim Hildebrandt prior to Tim's death in 2006
