Like the ROTK one! I just love the horn that [In reply to] Can't Post

Blows at that moment and you did a good job capturing the overall feel if the scene.

Some who have read the book, or at any rate have reviewed it, have found it boring, absurd, or contemptible; and I have no cause to complain, since I have similar opinions of their works, or of the kinds of writing they evidently prefer.

thanks! [In reply to] Can't Post

thanks a lot for the kind words.
i had just got my blueray collection, so doing "research" for this drawing was pretty fun.
ha.
i had an excuse to watch all 3 movies again without getting my girlfriend angry.

i'm going to color these 3 images up hopefully within the next couple of weeks.
will post the colored versions up as soon as possible.

I especially love the different textures/patterns you added in there. Adds so much more depth and awesomeness. Smile

MOEBIUS [In reply to] Can't Post

THANKS FOR NOTICING ALL THE TEXTURES.
I'VE BEEN EXPERIMENTING A LOT WITH DIFFERENT TEXTURES THE LAST YEAR OR SO.
I USED TO DRAW VERY CLEAN AND SLICK. BUT THEN FOR SOME REASON, I JUST STARTED FALLING IN LOVE WITH MOEBIUS ALL OVER AGAIN.
AND HIS WORK MADE ME WANT TO use a lot more textures.
sorry, just realized i had my caps lock on.
haha

but for the "rain" effect on the TT piece, i used a dry brush.
and on the "smoke" or...smudge effects on the ROTK piece, i used acrylic paint on a piece of toilet paper.
hahaha

COMICS [In reply to] Can't Post

haha, thanks a lot.
really, thats very nice of you to say.

i've actually self published a few books in the past.
and am working on a new one now.

i love comics. but its so much work.
i always wanted to do a fantasy book, but i guess was never really good enough to get professional work.
which is why i had to self publish. and its just so expensive.

but we'll see what happens.
