"The Look"

"The Look" Can't Post

"The Look" Sam in the House of the Healing

These drawings are not being posted in the order in which they were drawn. This is #12 of 24 . It was with this drawing that my flaws started to get under control.

I had to get it right to my own eyes. This is my very favorite moment in the whole trilogy. I call this moment "The Look".

Love it! [In reply to] Can't Post

It's not a perfect likeness but it better than that because it captures the essence of Sam, especially in that moment. The eyes speak volumes.

At the light that radiates down
Will it travel forth to you
Far across this shimmering sea?"

Ohh, the eyes. [In reply to] Can't Post

While some proportions are still off a little, you really captured the look in the eyes, which is the most important part. Very nice.

Elven by name, Hobbit by nature

'Road lead ever on and on
down from the door where it began
now far ahead the road has gone
down from where all began' -FOTR-

and through all the world has changed
the ages come and go with time
and yet those remain unchanged
unto they journey westward
over the sea...
