LotR: Poetic Justice by wolfanita LotR: Poetic Justice by wolfanita
Ever since I first read the book and watched the movies in cinema for the first time (way too many years ago), I had several Lord of the Rings - gags in the back of my head.
I doodled some of them into my old paperback copy of the book, but since the Hobbit movie is coming this year, I thought it would be a nice occasion to redraw five of these old pictures clean and in colour.


Every time I watch the Caradhras-scene where eight fellows are totally lost in the snow and that elf is simply walking past them ON the snow, I think of Gandalf doing this.


Edit: Please understand that I'm no particular Legolas-Fangirl. Any enthusiasm about him written under this picture is wasted on me.

EDIT: I changed frame and background so they match my new LotR fan art better.

I LOVE IT.
I always really loved that part in the books. I remember grinning every time thinking, "Oh, Legolas, you cheeky bastard..."
It kind of pissed me off that Elves are made out to be so stony in the movies. Yeah, I get it with the ethereal beauty or whatever, but they aren't actually supposed to be. Sam says so when Frodo asks him if he's content now that he's seen/spoken with Elves in the Fellowship when they meet with Galdor and his company in the woods! I kind of want to dig up the exact quote and send it to Peter Jackson. Repeatedly.

Thank you! :D
In LotR the elves are okay, but especially in the third Hobbit they are quite annoying.
Can't blame Jackson for everything, after all what I've heard, you should blame the studio.
(While the elves in the Hobbit book are just plain horrible, all that singing and jesting and they are completely different fom the elves in LotR who are again completely different from the elves in the Silmarillion - one can't really speak of Tolkien's elves; he didn't deliver a homogeneous characterisation of them.)

In the book he wails and complains a lot but doesn't do much. It's often say that Legolas is such a great person, but it seems just because he's an elf but not because he proves it. The oh-so-perfectness of some elves is tiresome.
In the movies, he's a show-off. He's completely overhyped and I don't understand why. His charater has not much depth. In LotR he has some nice scenes with Gimli or Aragorn, but they do the most of it.
In BotFA he's just a bloody pain in the neck.

That's the best I can do right now.

I'm not that old and still look like a baby; but when people tell me they couldn't watch LotR in cinema because they were still babies, I feel quite weird for I was twenty then. ;)

I think that is great!And believe me seening so fresh art by people mature enough, personally gives me hope. No matter the kids at the school I was working last year thought I am 14 max (^^"), I am 22 and I still love drawing fanart and I wouldn't want that to stop someday. So please never stop impressing us with your youthfull art!
