In The Lord of the Rings, Tom Bombadil is a mysterious character who aids Frodo and his companions on their journey. He and his wife Goldberry, the "Daughter of the River," still live in their house on the Withywindle, and some of the characters and situations from the original poem appear in The Lord of the Rings. In the book, he is described as "Master of wood, water and hill", and nearly always speaks or sings in stress-timed metre: 7-beat lines broken into groups of 4 and 3 (old English metre as first noted in Caedmons Hymn in the story of Bede. The metre was discovered in the 19th century). He appears in three chapters, "The Old Forest", "In the House of Tom Bombadil", and "Fog on the Barrow-downs". He is mentioned in the chapter "The Council of Elrond" as a possible keeper and protector of the One Ring. He is mentioned at the end of the story in "Homeward Bound" and "The Grey Havens". Behind Bombadil's simple façade are hints of great knowledge and power, though limited to his own domain.
Tom first appears when Merry and Pippin are trapped by Old Man Willow and Frodo and Sam cry for help. Tom commands Old Man Willow to release them, singing him to sleep, and shelters the hobbits in his house for two nights. Here it is seen that the One Ring has no power over Bombadil; he can see Frodo when the Ring makes him invisible to others, and can wear it himself with no effect. He even tosses the Ring in the air and makes it disappear, but then produces it from his other hand and returns it to Frodo. While this seems to demonstrate that he has unique and mysterious power over the Ring, the idea of giving him the Ring for safekeeping is rejected within Book Two's second chapter, "The Council of Elrond." Gandalf says, rather, that "the Ring has no power over him", and believes that Tom would not find the Ring to be very important and so might simply misplace it.
Frodo spends two nights in Tom Bombadil's house, each night dreaming a different dream, which appear to be either clairvoyant or prophetic. The first night he dreams of fearful things, including Gandalf's imprisonment atop Orthanc in Isengard. The second night he dreams of a song that "seemed to come like a pale light behind a grey rain-curtain, and growing stronger to turn the veil all to glass and silver, until at last it was rolled back, and a far green country opened before him under a swift sunrise."
Before sending the hobbits on their way, Tom teaches them a rhyme to summon him if they fall into danger again within his borders. This proves fortunate, as the four encounter Barrow-wights during the following chapter, "Fog on the Barrow-downs". After saving them from the Barrow-wights, Tom gives each hobbit a long dagger taken from the treasure in the barrow. As the hobbits leave the Old Forest, he refuses to pass the borders of his own land, but before he goes he directs them to The Prancing Pony Inn at Bree.

This was a PS-ed cross over-fanart with original poster of the famous vedio game Heroes of Might and Magic VI (魔法门之英雄无敌6): and World of Warcraft characters and armors.

At the very begging of this I was just to remove the ugly water mark that does not belongs to it according to the original poster (the water mark was not from the orignial author),but while suddenly found it very alike the World of Warcraft stuffs. So I draw something onside and made it a cross-fansart of two games, here goes the similar looking-stuffs:

【Here, I do not own this wonderful work, it still belongs to the game Heroes of Might and Magic VI, but it IS a WOW fanart work on the other side.】
I will delete this pic in a few days because I PSed it just for remind myself of WOW universe. 
If anyone knows the original author please tell me and I will go for him/her and say I'm sorry to do the PS and I am not intend to destroy anything.

I just love both of the two games, I am a royal player..forgive me!

The blondie is my mage and it's all about a beautiful dramatic begining of how me and my friends in the guild called ‘Blackblade Brotherhood’ stepped onto the very land of Pandaria. When I was still in World of Warcraft..how I miss those guys but I may not return for now.

In Role-Playing there goes:Lady Rosalind with her son Ior Wintermere with Ior's father and the other mercenarys.
As a matter of fact it was a sisiter-page of ‘Mists of Pandaria’ ,in which you can find some other charactors I use in a fanart story for :

This is a piece originally made for the Prismatic Art Collection. The intention was to do a big fantasy battle featuring women heroes of different backgrounds. It was fun doing a fantasy scene where I got to choose all the parts rather than work solely from a strict description (although it did end up taking longer for me to complete, since I kept changing my mind). :)

Here is the next image I did for the Llewellyn Worldwide 2014 Astrology Calendar. :)

Aquarius: January 21 to February 19. Fixed Air sign. Independence, creativity, enlightenment, idealism, reform. Dominant colors: grays, silvery blue, and opalescent colors. Despite being the "Water Bearer," Aquarius is an air sign, not a water sign - she pours the water of knowledge onto the world. (something like that, anyway) ;) This one was really tricky for me, even though I'm an Aquarius, since it's a relatively ethereal sign.

Here is the next image in the series I did last year for the Llewellyn Worldwide 2014 Astrology Calendar. :)

Leo: July 23 - August 22. Fixed Fire sign. Loyalty, leadership, generousity, outgoing, ambitious, lionhearted. Color: Orange, red, gold. Glowing warm colors. Associated with a roaring fire, the Sun, the Heart. Leos tend to be talented, creative, and dramatic, warm and enthusiastic, dynamic and idealistic, but can also be vain and stubborn. Natural leaders. Leo here is a woman in glowing armor with a fiery red mane of hair, carrying the banner of her people. :) (Also: sunflowers are one of the many symbols associated with the Leo, thus the field of sunflowers.)
