The journey to Mordor by Shockbolt The journey to Mordor by Shockbolt
After three evenings this piece is finally finished...for now :-)

Of all themes and fantasy worlds, Middle-earth, The universe of Conan and Star Wars is what I hold closest to my heart.

Here You see a scene from my mind of the three Hobbits as they are on their journey to Mordor to destroy The Ring. Gollum, eager to lure them to Shelobs lair; Sam glancing over at Frodo who's struggling with an emotional battle within, feeling the heavy weight of the ring and the responisibility on his person to carry it to it's place of destruction...Mt Doom.

Painted in a single layer, 3 evenings, sizereduced alot. No reference used

Wonderful! I love how you gave your own spin of the characters instead of making them look just like the movies :D

Thank You :)
I'm considering myself lucky, to have "discovered" Middle-earth a long time before the movies, and therefor I'd much rather come up with my own versions of them than paint the ones Peter Jackson hired in as actors :)

Wow. This is amazing. The atmosphere, the expressions... it manages to somehow be both impressionistic and detailed... truly wonderful work right here.
