The One Ring by Fantaasiatoidab The One Ring by Fantaasiatoidab
:squee: Yay! Another LOTR drawing! I'm on fire!!!
It didn't come out as I imagined (does it ever?), but it's not very bad either. There are certain Frodo pictures that all people draw and I haven't seen this one before, so I'm quite proud of myself :blush:
Anyway, enjoy!

Just a simple pencil ;) You know there's different pencils? Most known is HB, everybody uses this one. But there's also 5H-9B pencils and F pencil is between H and B pencils. I hope it helps, I'm not very good at explaining :giggle:

I immediately recognize those fingernails as Hobbitonian from the film. They always stick out to me when I watch those films. Strange thing to notice, but I did. :) And there's a real 3-Dimensionality to the fingers, too, particularly his left hand. An odd thing, at least in my mind, for this piece is that in the thumbnail version his face looks less like Elijah Wood than in the full size version. Am I the only that sees that and is baffled? I dunno, I could be crazy. :)

Theres definitely a TON of shadow on his face & not a lot of actual face being shown, but I can definitely see Frodo in it. Like I said on the Moriarty piece, the less of the 'known' face that is there, the harder it is to pull off. But I think you did. And I really like the light that catches his eye there. Theres just enough emotion in that eye to sell the piece.

I agree that there are a ton of Frodo pictures that EVERYONE and their Mom has drawn, so this was a good one to do. :highfive:

I know, I always notice their fingernails as well!!! :D They look particularly nasty, sometimes I even get distracted because of their ugly fingernails :giggle:

Well, I'm not surprised that you didn't recognize Elijah in the thumbnail because I kinda messed up his face :/ But I'm glad to hear that you find him more similar in the full size version ;)

:giggle: Yeah well, my mom hasn't drawn Frodo before, but I'm quite sure she'll do it before this year ends :D
