Not a bad first submission for 2010, eh?

A Principles of Illustration assignment, which was to do anything we wanted in the proportion of 4.5"x11". I actually wound up coming up with three usable sketches out of the four assigned, so at some point I'll be doing those, too, but this was the one Yuko picked as being the most different for me. So!

I spent the entire sketch alternating between staring at my Mucha poster (Repose da la Nuit) and cursing trees.

I've been trying to draw Beren and Luthein for a long time. Their story is my favorite, and it's been disappointing to fail at rendering anything of the tale. I guess it was time? It's not a particular scene I'm quoting, but in my head (ignoring details of setting) it's when they first meet.

Be proud of me: there is no blue anywhere. (Payne's grey does not count.) Palette inspired by ~SineSquared.

Watercolors, Arches 140lb block, lots of teensy brushes. Watermark because I love this.

Another sketch,i only have time for those lately. :(
It's Arwen,the way i imagined her before the movies came out.I love Liv Tyler,mind you,but i wanted to try my own portrayal of the character. :)

I gave her more human features than how i'd preferably draw Tolkien's elves,to emphasize/hint her half-elven status.

Coloured version!

Chibi Frodo, due to popular demand. ;P

Whenever I picture chibi Frodo, the only thing I can think of is the image Bri did of his "happy chicken dance," so that's what I had to draw. XD His hair was a challenge.

Just making fun of my two favourite LotR characters, don't mind me :D

I put this drawing into this section even if I don't mean it to be a sketch (I spent far too much time on it to consider it a sketch...) But when it came to scan it, it was the same as usual: the result is completely lame. The paper is too thin and the lines either come out too visible, or too invisible....
Anyway, this is almost (I did some impROvement on it later) the drawing I gave Alan Lee when I saw him at a great bookshop. I already had to make him sign my book of LOTR, which was quite paralyzing for me, but I managed to gather enough courage to give him this, and he was really happy^^
