Hey gang!

A while back :iconbloodzilla-billy: had a cool idea involving drawings based around specific themes. Over time we realized there wasn't a lot of time to produce a ton of side art so it has been put on hold.

One of the themes was going to be LotR. So, here's a Gimli quickie I did a couple months ago. I like to think of it as a look for a new animated series, hehe.

Here are the others!:

M!

Hi there people!
Here is my take on what almost every illustrator in the world has done, a representation of "The Hobbit"!
So, instead of the usual choices i didn't want to represent any monster or epic moment of the tale, i just wanted to show the only moment of the novel in which every character seems to be playing along with the others and they really think like a group.

It is placed when they are going to the Black Forest, after being in Beorn´s place.

Hope you like it!

PD: Thanks a lot for the DD and all the wonderfull comments!

Oh, did you like that mountain Aulë? Was that your favorite mountain? Oh gosh I’m so sorry I promise I won’t knock down any of the others you painstakingly built up over the last eon WHOOPS THERE I GO AGAIN, BUTTERFINGERS.


Only one more page to go before I start a new arc and switch to a less time-consuming style! Telling a story at the speed of my coloring skills is just not going to get me through another six pages. *wobble*

I had a dream about the origins of Sauron/Mairon the Maiar, and his time spent in the service of Aulë the Smith. Now I am trying to put some of that dream-material into a comic.

I want to explore some of the empty margins in the history of these characters, simply because there is a lot about Middle Earth theology that frustrates me a great deal, and I feel like the motivations of a lot of the 'dark' characters are not explored in the books at all (or at least, not to my satisfaction). So this is my sort of self-indulgent, mini "Paradise Lost" for the Silmarillion. XD

Caricature/Cartoon, Fellowship of the Ring, LORD OF THE RINGS. Pencil, ink, prismacolor marker, gouache.

This is the colored and composed, finished rendering of something I did for a neighbor kid named Casey. He's a big-time fan of the films, but didn't have the special edition DVDs with the added scenes, and extras. So I bought him a set, and held onto it until I could surprise him with a little cartoon sketch as a bonus. Well, as usual, I went overboard, and what was originally intended to be a quick, simple sketch turned into a full-blown, gigantic illustration! LOL! Boromir, and Merry didn't make the cut, but I switched Pippin for Casey, turning the kid into a hobbit. Typically for his age, he actually loves the dark, bad-guy Orcs. But-- TOUGH toe-jam, kid! You're a furry-footed halfling, now... and you'll LIKE it! LOL!

It was an oversized illustration, and it was tough to get a scan done of it. Strangely, Kinko's produced a scan streaked with noisy color lines, which I removed in Photoshop. I was tempted to spiff it up with fancy digital cheats. But I decided to leave it the way I originally rendered it. The lighting effects for the crystal on Gandalf's staff, and the glow of Frodo's elf-sword, Sting, were achieved with old-fashioned dry-brush technique, toothbrush spatter, and stipple.

And yeah, I KNOW Gollum wasn't a member of the Fellowship, but I just wanted him in there. I had fun depicting his lust for the Ring despite Sting glowing inches away. And the "pull" of the Ring on Frodo is here illustrated literally, as well as Frodo's temptation to put it on.
