 Frodo : I can't do this, Sam.

Sam : I know. It's all wrong By rights we shouldn't even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were, and sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy. How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad happened. But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something. Even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back only they didn’t. Because they were holding on to something.

Frodo : What are we holding on to, Sam?
Sam : That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it’s worth fighting for.

I love this Artwork. It combines the cinematic detailism and atmosphere of the movies with a fairytail like artstyle the books could be illustrated in.

Gorgeous representation of one of my favorite philosophical speeches in LotR, and I think you captured the essence of the idea of hope and belief in good really well, as well as the constant battle/dance between the 2 opposing/complementary forces. Wonderful art and message representation, it got me all emotional, more so than usual when reading/hearing this part. Thank you so much for sharing your creation with us.

Easily one of the best, if not the best scenes in the Trilogy. So filled with emotion and heart warming characters. It was Sam's defining moment when he stopped becoming the follower and became the hero, the moment he reminds us all that our world isn't so different, and that we too have something worth fighting for.

You represented this scene so perfectly. The imposing Fell Beast and its Nazgul Master, Sauron's eye glaring in the background, Smeegal in the back, and Sam running up to save Frodo. All perfectly complimented by your style.
