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.

This should've happened in the movies, I would've been so happy! (Sorry, my archery inspiration... but it would be perfect!)

I was quite happy that somebody finally at least hit Legolas on the nose in Hobbit II.

I still don't know what the heck he was doing in the movie...! You know you have a problem when the movie poster saying 'The Hobbit' has two elves on the front.

It's okay that he was in the movie in general, after all they are visiting his home, but for me there was a bit too much of him - after all he has his own movies. Though I must say he wasn't as annoying in the Hobbit (yet) as he was sometime in LotR (book and movie). Still would have preferred to see more of his daddy on the elven front.

I guess... my real beef is with Tauriel. I got some strange looks at the theater when I exclaimed "A FEMALE?! WHY IS THERE A FEMALE IN THE HOBBIT??" I know everyone's all for gender equality, but sometimes you just gotta watch the guys do their thing.

I have no problem with Tauriel as an added female character, I just think they should have skipped the stupid teenie-like love story. I always thought it was completely unrealistic that there were no women in the Hobbit, after all they were not on a 19th century warship as in Master and Commander. Movies with men - or women - only are absolutely okay for me, if it makes sense, but it never made much in the Hobbit.
In the German version there was at least the thrush, for a thrush is always a "she" in German if not definitely identified as a male.

Yeah... I started to warm up to her after seeing the movie, and I'm hoping that her little 'romance' with Kili doesn't mess up his, Fili's, and Thorin's death scene. But as far just her being in the movie goes, I'm more or less neutral about it... I am a bit of a traditionalist when it comes to stories like the Hobbit. Were no females written into the plot? Okay.

It's like when my sister an I were looking for a movie to watch, and a modern version of the Three Musketeers looked interesting... until we found out that d'Artagan was a woman. Our reaction was pretty much 'HOLY NOPE' and we turned it off instantly. Hence my initial beef with Tauriel. But I'm still hazy, is she a completely new character, or did she already exist somewhere within Tolkien's lore?

I think it's quite a difference though, if you just add a female character or change an existing character into a woman. That seldom works. As I wrote, I don't need a female character in a story; as long as it actually makes sense why there is none. If there is just none because that stupid "that's too dangerous for a woman" cliché, it makes me angry, but it also makes me angry if a woman is just added for a love story and no reason beyond.

Tauriel is a completely new character.
