My entry for the "capture" themed contest at :iconarda-inspired:

In a literal sense, the three hunters, Gimli, Legolas, and Aragorn, are trying to capture the Uruk-Hai who kidnapped Merry and Pippin.

In a symbolic sense, Éowyn, is charging to capture her freedom.

This was so much fun to draw - I tried to, well, capture the dynamic of the word's meaning.:)

Wow! A very unique drawing style ... I like it, it reminds me of some old paintings of my dad... ^^
But you really captured them in ther movement ^^

All I can say about this pic is, that I would want it on a T-shirt because it is AWESOME!

Thank you so much!:aww: Aww, that means a lot!:heart: I really should get myself together and start making postcards/other stuff with my abstracted art on it!

I can notify you when I get round to do it!:) Though I can't do some for Lotr or other fandoms, because I'm officially registered as a self-employed artist and I don't want to risk copyright issues.:( Though I suppose I could keep Éowyn with a few tweeks here and there.:D So now I'm thinking about what to draw instead, mermaids, season, etc...Any suggestions?:)

What about the seasons combined with the states of our life? From birth to death from spring to winter...

It's a good idea!:) I'd do it as a commission, but otherwise probably not though...winter is my favourite season in which I thrive, so I can't really associate it with death.:D

Love this. I especially like that you called them the three hunters, which is what they are called in the book. When my sister read that part I drew her a picture of them and titled it "the three hunters". :D Wonderful work. :D
