Classic Road-Trip!


wow that took a lot longer than i thought it was going to. it took forever to the get colors right... im still not used to working in color, especially only 6 of them... so its a little late, but hopefully it'll still get noticed!

Ah, The Hobbit, neh? :D I like it, but the sides of the design look strange. Too straight and cut off, I think.

The enemy's gate is down.
Writers are people too! (Albeit strange ones.)
Save Poe! Reckon Nevermore! Or he'll be head-locked forevermore!

I really like the style and colors; however I agree that the edges are really abrupt. And the dragon's name is spelled "Smaug". ;)

AW! you are totally right! Smaug! damn! oh well... its a parody after all i suppose... it was always supposed to be a joke on the weather/possible driving hazard sign anyway...

the edges i wasnt sure how to handle. it started out more rough and sketchy but it didnt look right to me somehow so i ended up sharpening it. maybe i should have faded it or something.

thanks for the feedback!

Would you kindly...

Hmm ... I don't like the edges, but I gotta show love for a Tolkien design. (Even if the pun does depend on mispronouncing the name--right, Draug? )

the dragon's true name is Smaug (confirmed by google). although i had forgotten it was spelled that way, it might not really matter because the pun is a like-sounding word pun (i dont remember what those are called grammatically, not a rhyme).

if i have time i might try to fix the edge of the design and resub it... if so i hope everyone will revote for it...
