***FOTR EE APPENDICES DISCUSSION: Design Galleries – The Peoples of Middle-Earth*** (part 3) Can't Post

To find the Design Galleries, put in Disk 3 of FOTR EE. Choose Designing and Building Middle-Earth, then Design Galleries, The Peoples of Middle-Earth.

When you choose the people you want to look at, you will see a page of explanation. If you choose Slideshow, it will step automatically through your choice. There is audio commentary with some of the choices which are marked with a “wax” seal. If you want to spend more time looking at the images, you can choose to step through the pages of images one at a time.



I am not really going to be asking questions in these discussions. If you have a comment you would like to make, or a question that might make things clearer for you, please post it.

Today we are going to visit the good folk at Isengard!

Saruman:



I don’t know who drew the two drawings of Saruman, but they are very much how I have always "seen" Saruman. I think Christopher Lee did an excellent job creating Saruman. His height and his bearing very much gave Saruman the arrogance required for the part. I would, though, have like to see his "many colors" robe when he revealed himself.

Uruk Hai:



The concept drawing that is first on the top row is by Warren Mahy. I think it gives a more "animal" quality to the face. The second drawing is by Alan Lee. It is one of the pictures that has narration for the artist to tell us something about his drawing. It shows the Uruk being "born." The last concept drawing also shows a "birth." It is by Warren Mahy. I really didn’t like the birthing scenes. How did they get into the ground for the Orcs to dig up?

The bottom row shows shots of the stuntmen who portrayed Uruk. The first two look like standard costume shots. The next two are of Lurtz. All the prosthetic makeup that he is wearing looks most uncomfortable; but he did a really good job as Lurtz. He actually made Christopher Lee look small! The last shot is from the attack at Amon Hen where all the Uruk come at Aragorn.

Tomorrow we take a quick peek at Bilbo Baggins.
