Collection of Lord of the Rings sketches Can't Post

http://www.facebook.com/...166739791&type=1

This is my personal collection of pre-quest LoTR drawings. So far only hobbits.
If you have any feedback, please post on my album. :)

Frodo: “I wish the ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.”
Gandalf: “So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”

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

I love them! They are so light and free. They really capture the values and the spirit of Hobbityness!

Love your drawings and the sepia tone - really gives it the old age vibe :)

Delightful sketches! [In reply to] Can't Post

They give such a wonderful sense of the lightheartedness of hobbits and their carefree lives. I also like the sepia tone, gives an aged and more earthy look than normal pencil.

"Earth shakes
Stone breaks
The forest is at your door
The dark sleep is broken
The woods have awoken
The trees have gone to war
Roots rend, wood bends
The Ents have answered the call
Through branches now the wind sings
Fell the power of living things
The trees have gone to war"
From 'The Ents'

Whoops! [In reply to] Can't Post

Hey there. I'm sorry, I failed to mention that you have to have a Facebook account to view them. I made the album public, but for some reason it only shows up to FB users. I'm working hard to get them onto an adequate website :)

try a image hosting site like: [In reply to] Can't Post

Picasa (a google product that interfaces nicely with other google accounts - if you have a gmail account, you essentially have a Picasa account)

Photobucket

Deviant Art (specifically for creative work... not so much travel photos or the like)

That's better. [In reply to] Can't Post

All nicely done. I like that you imagined some scenes not directly tied to the movies... I wonder what little Frodo found in Bilbo's coat? Maybe he was telling Frodo about the riddle contest he had once upon a time?

Actually I never imagined Frodo sitting on Bilblo's knee, because I can't imagine Bilbo letting him more than any other reason. But Bilbo did seem to like children, at least telling them scary stories.

Thanks for sharing Tolkien's Girl.

Aw, these are really cute! [In reply to] Can't Post

I love these! If you do more, please post them!

I especially liked the last one, the "farthest step" one.

Lord Sméagol? Gollum the Great? The Gollum! Eat fish every day, three times a day; fresh from the sea. Most Precious Gollum!

I'm sure the concept of Frodo on Bilbo's lap is a good deal of fluff. Who knows if he ever sat on his knee? As for what Frodo found in his pocket...well...it's a little foreshadowing :)

Unsure bother, neither link seems to be working! I'm sure the picture is marvelous, though!
