Explore Middle-earth with this exclusive look at John Howe and Alan Lee's Hobbit concept art

For decades John Howe and Alan Lee have shaped how we visualise J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-earth.

As well as being lead concept artists on Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy, they've also spent the last three years in charge of The Hobbit - from Wargs to Goblin caves.

In the new issue of ImagineFX we speak to both artists about their work for Jackson's new trilogy. Here is some of their concept art, exclusive to this site.
