Frodo Baggins - Distrust in Motion

Digital Frodo
Original Drawing

My first Lord of the Rings drawing in YEARS!!!!

I was watching LOTR extended movie 'The Return of the King' when I stumbled across this picture and was immediately inspired to capture the intensity. The picture was in widescrean so that is why there is black strips across the top and bottom.
I left the skin really sketchy because his skin is dehydrated and rough with dirt

I realy like your drawings, you're very good.

Be Blessed:)

This is very cool.

You should do one of Boromir. :-)

Leauphaun said...

Thank you!

Yes, I have been meaning to do other people from Lord of the Rings, but somehow I keep doing drawings of music artists or paintings of horses...:)
But I'll try to do Boromir soon!

Thanks and God Bless!

As others have said, please do more LOTR paintings/sketches! This one is eerie... in a good way. :)

Haha, Thank you whisper!
Oh yes, I am going to do more LOTR drawings soon :)

God Bless!

Hi. When is this scene in the movie?

Leauphaun said...

Hi Gabi. This scene is chapter 27 (I'm going from the extended movie index) "The Parting of Sam and Frodo".
It's the scene in Minas Morgul where Sam, Frodo and Gollum are climbing up the stairs to Shelob's lair, and Frodo decides he doesn't need Sam anymore, and he and Gollum enter Shelob's lair.

Hope that helped :)
