Very nice! [In reply to] Can't Post

That is a great picture. I can't believe it's done in ballpoint pen.

My daughter's favorite line to quote:

Sam: Nothin'. Just a bit of seasoning. I thought maybe if we was havin' a roast chicken one night or something...
Frodo: Roast chicken?

Have been working on a Tolkien portrait myself but decided to paint it on a big canvas so it's taking me a long time!

Wonderful [In reply to] Can't Post

I especially like Grima lurking in the background. The detail is especially wonderful.
