I don't know what that means. Did you mean 1940's Britain? A collegiate setting? Should Thorin be wearing a tweed suit? Or do you mean  to say that it is very far from Alan Lee and John Howe's idea of Tolkien's fictitious world?

You might wanna watch what you say, thats almost discriminatory.

It's a great picture, better than some other artwork I have seen for LotR.

Funny, since I'm Italian.

I'm curious though, what do you see as ' very far from Tolkien's work'?  As an illustrator, Professor Tolkien works were rather stylized, my style is definitely more realistic, in that we are definitely 'far' from one another.

If you mean that that's not how you visualize that specific scene out of The Hobbit, well, you have every right, of course, every individual reader (and illustrator) 'sees' things differently when reading. But if in your opinion some things are off with regards to the text itself and Professor Tolkien's vision, well, I'd like to know what your objections are,and elaborate on my choices.  

jgt7771 thank you! Yes, Drunken Hallucinations is one of mine, and yes, I did paint one of the enemies for Lord of the Rings. I'm not at liberty of being more precise, at the moment, due to the non-disclosure agreement I'm bound to.

And again thank you to all commenters, sorry for any belated answer, I had a pending deadline.

What an idiotic, ill-informed statement.

Also, the word you're (presumably) looking for is "typical."

Beatiful looking painting as well.  It is very close to the image I have in my head of Thorin over the years.  I guess that makes my imagination "typical American"....

Please keep posting more of these when you are able to!!

Good gaming to all of you!
