The color comp for this scene is important because it will set much of the tone of the piece. The Hobbit, by and large is a more charming story than the Lord of the Rings, mainly because it is narrated by a charming individual, in Bilbo Baggins. The Lord of the Rings is narrated from several points of view and flows more like a historical narrative. Because of this it gains a epic quality that The Hobbit lacks. The Lord of the Rings is really scary in moments. When Tolkien begins talking about Sauron and the coming battles, the writing takes on a terrifying, apocalyptic quality that reminds the reader of William Blake's ominous writing.That being said, I don't want this scene to be too dark, or as seriously scary as some of the moments from the Lord of the Rings would be. I want it to be pretty bright, and to have the brightly lit feel of a classical European battle painting.
