Hobbit Hot Rod - created by spaceranger


Hobbit Hot Rod
Favs: 1SBS: n/aHi-resRank: 1/5Score: 63.4% (35)8685 views

I saw this tiny little electric car and thought only a Hobbit could fit inside. That got me thinking why not a Hobbit Hot Rod? So I souped up the little car, modified the wheels and basic structure to accommodate a small jet engine and big tires to give the Hobbit a mach one racing car that could outrun Smaug!

The car was greatly modified using the original and changing proportions of some elements. The interior was cleaned up removing the window and much repainting was needed as well. A new door was made and a lot of general cleanup. The only outside source for the car is the tailpipe exhausts.

I used two Hobbit houses for the background and made major changes to make them distinctly different. Cloning and rebuilding parts took more time than I intended to spend. All changes were made with parts from the two house sources and some painting.

I'll try to finish the SBS but I don't think I'll have enough time.You can see the work that went into this by comparing the source images to the final entry. (4 years and 19 days ago)

SUPER DUPER, love the fattening of the tires, just like Hobbit's Feet

Good image, but try to work on some of the edges on the stick & figure. A soft blur brush will fix most of them. And since it's dark, the upper part of the figure could be less saturated...color fades in the dark. GL author.

author says:

Good points, I went back over it and fixed some things. I also, got rid of the pink tint, too problematic. Thanks!

Besides what Bob said, if he's a Hobbit shouldn't he have hairy feet?

Hair added...

Edges of hair on feet ain't hairy, and you haven't done anything to refine the edges mentioned above.

author says:

Edges were fixed, I'm happy with the feet.

The light and shadows in this are kind of all over the place, though I can appreciate the difficulty. I really like the concept, but otherwise I'm not quite sure what to make of it.

Maybe you could've moved the model slightly to the right then made the bottom left mushroom bigger, therefore making it cast more light. I find if I'm having trouble lighting a scene it helps to have a dominant light source to fool the eye.

It also helps to selectively blur/sharpen parts of the image to mimic the way humans perceive things i.e. I know the dude is the focus of the image but while I'm looking at him my brain is still noticing how sharp the background and buildings are and therefore it feels as if something is a bit wrong. Hope that makes sense!

author says:

Appreciate the input but I've spent all the time I will on this one.

Creating an entry is a lot of work so I understand your decision to stop revising. But for the future, I would note that a Rule-of-Thirds (rather than centering) composition can be more dramatic (and might have yielded a compelling diagonal arrangement here if your hobbit were moved to the right and the little mushrooms were in the middle). [BTW the horizon line of the lamp at his feet doesn't seem to match that of the other elements.]

I love the idea - I find the blurry grass a bit distracting but think on the other hand that it adds to the dreamy feeling. Well done
