During the Battle of the Pelennor Fields, the Witch-king himself was slain by Éowyn and Merry: Merry's surreptitious stroke with an enchanted Barrow-blade drove the Witch-king to his knees, allowing Éowyn, the niece of Théoden, to drive her sword between his crown and mantle. Thus was the Witch-king destroyed by a woman and a Hobbit, fulfilling the prophecy that "not by the hand of man will he fall".Both weapons that pierced him disintegrated, and both assailants were stricken with the Black Breath.

in comfortable middle age at 50 years old, was hired in spite of himself as a "burglar" by the wizard Gandalf and 13 dwarves led by their king Thorin Oakenshield on a quest to reclaim the Lonely Mountain and its treasure from the dragon Smaug. The adventure took Bilbo and the companions through the wilderness, to the elf haven of Rivendell, across the Misty Mountains and the black forest of Mirkwood, to Lake-town in the middle of Long Lake, and eventually to the Mountain itself. Here, after the dragon was killed and the Mountain reclaimed, the Battle of Five Armies took place.

In his journey, Bilbo encountered other fantastic creatures, including trolls, elves, giant spiders, a man who can change shape into a bear, goblins, eagles, wolves and a slimy, murderous creature named Gollum. Underground, near Gollum's lair, Bilbo accidentally found a magic ring of invisibility, which he used to escape from Gollum.

By the end of the journey, Bilbo had become wiser and more confident, having saved the day in many gruesome situations. He rescued the dwarves from giant spiders with the magic ring and a short Elven-sword he acquired. He used the ring to sneak around in hostile environments, as well as his wits to smuggle the dwarves out of the elves' prisons. He was able to hold his own in conversation with the wily Smaug. When tensions arose over ownership of the recovered treasure, he tried unsuccessfully to bring the opposing sides to compromise, using a stolen heirloom jewel as a leverage. This strained his relationship with Thorin, but the two were reconciled at Thorin's deathbed. At the end of the story, Bilbo returned to his home in the Shire only to find that several of his relations, believing him to be dead, were trying to claim his home and possessions. In addition to becoming wealthy from his share of the dwarves' treasure, he found that he had traded respectability for experience and wisdom.

and this is the night Bilbo meet 13 dwarves and wizard,and planning to the the Lonely Mountain to take back the treasure from the dragon~~~

What can you see on the horizon? Why do the white gulls call? Across the sea, a pale moon rises, The ships have come to carry you home.
During the Fourth Age, it was one of the last Elven havens as the remaining Elves of Rivendell and Lothlórien left Middle-earth. In the beginning of the first century, Fourth Age, it experienced a population growth as migrants from the east came to Mithlond. Not all Elves left Middle-earth immediately, many of the migrants made long-term temporary settlements.

Aside from Elves, Gandalf, Bilbo Baggins and Frodo Baggins also went to Valinor from the Grey Havens, and a family tradition held that Samwise Gamgee, having been himself a Ring-bearer, albeit briefly, did likewise, in the year 1482 of the Shire Reckoning, Fourth Age 61. It was also told in the Red Book of Westmarch, that after Aragorn's death Legolas built a grey ship and left Middle-earth to go to Valinor, and that Gimli went with him.

“Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men, doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.”


― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings

...The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say...

The fifth one finally is done! This one took me a very long time. I started the design one month ago, but my mind just went empty. So I moved on to other projects. Luckily when I listened to the complete recordings of The Two Towers, I got inspirations again! :)

Hope you like it.

How to colour Minas-tirith was really a headache. I couldn't just make it white, or to make it too colourful...So at last I used low saturation colours on it.

What shall be the next location then?

They're really just sketches, they'd be much cleaner and nicer if I took the designs further. I didn't though. Designing rohan items is hard for me :/ Even more so than with elves, everyone expects a certain style - vikingesque/saxon mixed with lots of horse motifs. It's a neat combination, but it's been done in the movies and while it looks great, it's pretty boring to just replicate. And I can't really put in something different, because it's not what people expect and they wouldn't like it. It's a bit frustrating.
You know, my Rohirrim as I imagined them are much simpler. If I really drew or painted what I imagine them like reading the book, everyone would be disappointed.
So I drew these horrendously ornate helmets.

Making a rohan helmet is easy. There are only a few types of every part so it's just a matter of putting it together so that it fits somehow. From the viking/vendel/saxon helmets you can take the bowl which can be made of 1,2,4 or even more pieces. Usually riveted together, mostly with a riveted ridge/spine running down the middle. There can be an optional nasal of different shapes, or the goggle-like mask which can also have a few shapes. Cheekguards can be shaped differently, they can just hang down, be tied at the chin, or be a part of a more complex protective system, maybe linked to the neckguard. And there can also be a back-neck piece, it can be metal or leather, segmented or one piece, layered or hinged...
And into all that you have to put the horse motifs. They can run on the cheekguards, make a decorative crest holding a tail plume, horse head might be a part of the nasal...Whatever you can think of. Other motifs you can use are sunrays, sun circle, horseshoes...

1. Quite ornate, celtic inspired. Bowl with fluting. Leather segmented back piece, high maille collar.
2. Some kind of heavy helmet. Goggle mask with a longer nasal, neckguard over high maille collar connected to a back maille aventail. Bowl is poorly drawn, but it's supposed to look like a round segmented spangenhelm.
3. Similar to 2., rounder, somehow more ancient looking. Weird protruding nasal, horse head cheekguards. (these are not hinged as opposed to the rest, that makes the helm look ancient as well.)
4. Ehm. Really angry looking horsehead. Probably a pretty expensive helmet. Bowl seems to be beaten out of one piece of metal with the horse head riveted to the front. It also makes a ridge, so maybe the bowl is 2 piece. The tail plumes (there are 2) are supposed to fall onto the rider's shoulders. The whole helmet seems tilted backwards and it makes it look more aerodynamic. I think.
5. Well, this is just a typical shape. Nothing original about this one. :/
6. Slightly boxier looking spangenhelm with a high top plume and a maille aventail.
7. A fairly typical conical spangenhelm, but this time with a square shaped maille ventail edged with fabric/leather.

My first fanart of the upcoming Hobbit movie.

This picture caused me quite some head- and heartache, for when I was almost finished, I had a little power failure while photoshop was saving; the file was destroyed and I had to colour EVERYTHING again - cursed very loud that day.
But in the end the second version looked better than the first and I learned to make an extra copy of everything I work on, so there's a happy ending nonetheless.

I wonder how the fairy tale would have ended if Snow White met those guys instead of her seven chubby mining dwarves...

To look at the details that made my eyes bleed in the original size, click on the picture.

The gents from left to right:
Thorin, Balin, Dwalin, Fili, Kili, Dori, Nori, Ori, Oin, Gloin, Bombur, Bofur and Bifur.

Ever since I first read the book and watched the movies in cinema for the first time (way too many years ago), I had several Lord of the Rings - gags in the back of my head.
I doodled some of them into my old paperback copy of the book, but since the Hobbit movie is coming this year, I thought it would be a nice occasion to redraw five of these old pictures clean and in colour.


Every time I watch the Caradhras-scene where eight fellows are totally lost in the snow and that elf is simply walking past them ON the snow, I think of Gandalf doing this.


Edit: Please understand that I'm no particular Legolas-Fangirl. Any enthusiasm about him written under this picture is wasted on me.

EDIT: I changed frame and background so they match my new LotR fan art better.
