Bard of Lake Town by Shockbolt Bard of Lake Town by Shockbolt
According to the book "Lords of Middle-Earth: Vol II - The mannish races" , this is what is said about Bard:

"Bard was a quiet, grim Northman Warrior from Lake town (Esgaroth) When the dragon Smaug attacked his porthome, he rallied the townsmen and slew the Fire-drake with a well-placed bowshot.
He later led the Northmen of the Long Lake area in the Battle of Five Armies outside the Lonely Mountain. After the victory, he used his portion of the Dragon's hoard to rebuild the ruined town of Dale, the home of his ancestor Girion.
Thus, Bard became the First King of the Second Line"

Far too little fan art of Bard. Also an obscene lack of art depicting Tolkien's characters interacting with animals. You included both so hats off to your work! :)

Nailed it. Even the black arrow he used.

well, quite nice, arms and shoulders' position is quite right, but why doesn't he even touch the string to pull it out? his fingers are beside the string, while they should be directly on it. painted as here it seems that the bow is pulled by some magic power and not the man who holds it.) looks sooo funny =)

Being an archer myself, I can relate. He just released his arrow, and the arm is about to be drawn backwards :)
