HAPPY BIRTHDAY, FRODO AND BILBO!!

Happy birthday to our wonderful hobbits!!

Jan - beautiful poem, as usual!!

And Shirebound - Love love love your profile pic!!!

And to Mechtild - I'm so glad you're still posting here... even if most of your posts are imageless! I stumbled upon your post from August this morning. It makes me so glad I secretly stashed some of your beautiful manips on my phone!! I've been using them as wallpapers. Hope you don't mind!

I'm going to try and release a new teaser today for a new story I'm collaborating on with my friend Sev Baggins on Fanfiction.net... No guarantees though. I've been rather busy and/or distracted as of late. :/ But I at least have to do *something* for the birthday of our muse!

Have a blessed day!! And may our beautiful muse always be with you!

Re: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, FRODO AND BILBO!!

Diem Kieu, I am so glad you enjoyed the poem so much. I certainly did!

I am sorry about the images, but it can't be helped. I am certainly not paying Photobucket hundreds of dollars to host the images they hosted from free since 2004. Shees!

You know, I believe all my Frodo art manips are still in the gallery here at LJ's Scrapbook, but I didn't always use them to make the posts. Still, if you want to see if you've missed any, I'll give you the link to the gallery. There are often several versions of the same manip, sometimes because I made actual variations, but often because some images are the icon version, some the cropped "teaser" version, the rest the full-size uncropped images. Here we go:

Re: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, FRODO AND BILBO!!

Thank you, Mech!!

Love your Saint Sebastian one... and Carvaggio's Lute Player!!

I think I have your best ones already though. ;)

Geez... I wish I could see Whiteling's rendition of Frodo as Saint Sebastian! It sounded so beautiful when you described it in one of your older posts... but when I clicked on the link, I couldn't access it! ARRGHH! DX Ah, well... C'est la vie! Frodo's still beautiful after all these years!

I've also seen quite a few statues and artworks that would be quite good manip fodder! Is there a good way to share those with you?

Speaking of which... that story teaser I mentioned earlier is about Frodo as a statue! *GASP! SPOILER!!!*

Re: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, FRODO AND BILBO!!

Oh, that's too bad about Whiteling's Reni St. Sebastian. I haven't opened that link since I made the post. I am guessing it went to Whiteling's image gallery at the time. She must have taken it down or transferred her work to another site. She's a fine artist. :(

Good luck on your statue!

Re: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, FRODO AND BILBO!!

Diem Kieu, thank you so very much. So happy you enjoyed!

The very best of luck to you on your story. Frodo certainly has the classic *chops* it would take to be a statue...

Re: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, FRODO AND BILBO!!

I love that pic. It's from one of mucun's gorgeous hobbit drawings.

RE: Re: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, FRODO AND BILBO!!

Thank you for the info, Shirebound! Unfortunately, I couldn't find that pic on your profile for the life of me - even after scouring the link you sent me and googling Mucun - although (s)he does have some other brilliant pieces!!

Have a blessed hobbit day!!

Sadly, the links to many of the earliest drawings on her LJ seem to be broken. You're certainly welcome to use this icon.

Re: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, FRODO AND BILBO!!

Thank you, Shirebound!!

I think I might have a little something for you in return for your kindness... It's the link to the teaser for that fanfic I was talking about! ;)
