Soldier of Gondor by xanykaos Soldier of Gondor by xanykaos
'How did I, a Hobbit of the Shire, come to this?' Okay, now I have to apologize. Profusely. I've been looking at so many pretty watercolour pictures, and I just snapped. SO a dug out a set of watercolours I haven't used since I was, like, 10 or something, and started to play around. Then I just got lazy. So everything's muddy and vauge. 'Specially that stupid balrog. I really don't know what a balrog's supposed to look like. And Shadowfax...ugh...pretend that's not there. Maybe I'll edit this all later. Blarg. Anyway, Pippin as a soldier of Gondor, surrounded by images of things that have shaped him and made him who and what he is. At do, at very least, like the one in the middle and the one with the palantir. Appropriately boyish, I guess. Watercolour and minor photoshop tweaking on Merry's face, which no amount of tweaking can save. Again...blarg.

I adore this! Pippin is the greatest and this really captures the feel of his character!

It is very beautiful. I like how you thought up everything that shaped Pippin into what he became. We see him maturing slowly throughout the trilogy.

I don't think this is terrible at all!! I think the slightly blurry look makes it kind of dream-like--and the hands in the upper corner are incredible. I couldn't draw hands like that, much less paint them.

Not bad at all, I love how you've shown excerpts of certain scenes. It looks a little blurred to me though, but I think that's actually the scanning rather than the picture itself. Perhaps you can tidy it up?
