A picture of Merry Brandybuck, his arm in a sling because of the recent battle with the Witch King. And please don't ask about the background, I have no idea.

I love it, but Merry had green eyes just saying

I realized that after I colored the picture.  I think the one I had looked at briefly looked brown (maybe his eyes were in shadow) .  Subsequent pics have him with green eyes.

well, his eyes are kinda hazel-ish green so I can see why it would be confusing.

I give him greenish eyes when I color him now.

I don't blame you. It does suit him better.

They're closer to Dominic Monaghan's eyes, anyhow.

Yes, but the book is way older than he is. Oh well, good job anyway.

Oh, certainly.  Once upon a time I had my own versions of the hobbits and I used to draw them quite a lot.  I chose to use the movie designs because they're more recognizable.

Aw! poor little Merry! I wanna hug him, too, but it would hurt his arm. *restrains self* Great work! The bruises look so real! :)

You should definately do one with color and detail like this of when Pippin finds Merry. Like, have them out on Pelennor and Pippin is sitting on the ground, holding Merry's pale body in his arms, a few tears sliding down his cheeks. *oh, I promised myself I wouldn't cry!* LOL!

Thank you! Admittedly, I've had some practice in drawing bruises...I seem to like hurting the characters I draw O__O But they're so cute that way! You just want to comfort them!

Someday I will. I have wanted to, because that's one of my favorite parts!

I think you should definately do one of Merry looking after Pippin in a healing tent outside the Black Gates just after Pippin was found underneath the troll. Poor little Pip....

If you did one like that, I'm sure it would be AWSOME! Your work is just gorgeous; it never ceases to amaze me. :):) Sorry if I sound repetitive. LOL! :)
