Alan Lee and New Zealand Drawing

Alan Lee and New Zealand Drawing Can't Post

I was going through my sketchpads from my art class this past year when I found these two. Wanted to share them with you all. The first one was when we had to draw a portrait of our favorite artist. The second one was when we had to draw something that we really wanted, which for me is a trip to New Zealand.

Gollum is at the very right, beside the creek eating a fish.

The first draft I did had more of a purple sky which I didn't like. I cut around the part I did like and put it on another piece of paper, that's why there is a weird line. In no way is this accurate, I just chose things that I thought represented New Zealand and what I like and drew them. Hopefully it looks ok!
There is a kiwi (fruit and bird), some hobbit holes, pretty landscape, some whales, etc.

Cool! New Zealand gets a stargate! [In reply to] Can't Post


I really like that second picture - great energy and whimsy. Nice!

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.
