Peter Jackson inspired by... Ralph Bakshi? - A Sharp Eye and Keen Memory

I'm sure many of you older Tolkien fans remember Ralph Bakshi's failed Lord of the Rings... Well, something about a recent picture released by German LOTR distributor Kinowelt sparked a memory in Kevin's mind... So, do you think the similarity in the images below is simple celestial coincidence, or that perhaps Peter Jackson has seen Ralph Bakshi's LOTR and has been using it as a bit of an inspiration at times... Here's your evidence--what's your verdict?

Ralph Bakshi's cowering Hobbits.

Peter Jackson's cowering Hobbits.

Thanks for the picture and the memory, Kevin!
