'Friend... I like that...' by Chaotica-I 'Friend... I like that...' by Chaotica-I
"... I ain't never been no one's friend before..."

Started this last night, and just finished it... Hoggle!!!
There were so many quotes that I could have used for the title, but I wanted it to be something positive, to match the painting... most of Hoggle's lines are awesome, and exactly what Sarah need to hear, but are less than friendly...
I think I made him look a bit younger than he appears in the movie, but I wanted him to look nice... he may not have always been a great friend, but he was always there ;P
Love the eyes, and much of the face, not thrilled with his hair or clothes, but oh well.
Next should be Sir Didymus! :D

Very sorry about the watermark, I know it ruins his eyes... but once bitten twice shy, I'm not taking any chances.

If you :+fav: but don't comment, I can't promise to thank you...

Oh my gosh it's Hedge-wart
Hog-wart...
Hog-gle!!

Ha, I love Hoggle. I especially love his line: You have to understand my position: I'm a coward, and Jareth scares me.

Sarah: What kind of position is that?

Hoggle: No position, that's my point!

Love it, you rock!

Hoggle is pretty great! Have you watched the bonus features for the movie? Getting everything right with that character caused many a headache on set... so many people were working on him at the same time! Turned out brilliantly though, and he gets some of the best lines for sure ;P

Thank you! :D

I haven't had time to watch the bonus features, but hopefully this weekend I will. I did hear an interesting rumor about the producers loosing him in the airport though.

You should! It's really interesting stuff.

Actually, one full Hoggle suit was lost at an airport (there are several Hoggles used in filming). He's become somewhat of a legend. He wound up in unclaimed baggage, and when the airport employees figured out what they had, they put him in their unclaimed baggage museum. Sadly, they did not take very good care of him, and the foam latex in his face started to rot away. They had him "professionally" restored, but chose a doll-maker, rather than a prop restoration artist, and he did a horrible job. Hoggle is almost unrecognisable. Like they gave him botox. Here are some before and after photos (look at your own risk, poor, poor Hoggle: [link]). They should have gone to this guy, he's the best in the restoration industry: [link] (he restored a Sir Didymus prop, and did a beautiful job. The man is an aritst). I wish that someday Tom Spina gets his hands on Hoggle and can restore him to his former glory!
Haha, yay for random rants! :XD:

Yes I agree, its' like he lost all the texture of Hoggle's skin. It's simply not his face anymore. But maybe there's still hope you never know. Thanks for sending the links!!

It is unfortunate that you have to put watermarks on your works, but I understand. It's also rare to see such great Hoggle work since no one really wants to draw him with all his wrinkles and whatnot, but I'm glad you went for it : You did an awesome job on him :+fav:
