I always thought the Hobbits just looked like small, fat, humans with furry feet (since it said in the book that their feet were furry - did it say their ears were furry?, I can't remember) Dwarves I think of as also small, but not as small as Hobbits, but with long grey beards, and very muscular. Elves I've seen as graceful humans. I've never imagined them looking different from humans, except perhaps a bit smaller, and looking very beautiful. -- "Old linguists never die - they just come to voiceless stops." - anonymous ICQ: 18656696 AIM Screen-Name: NikTailor
