    The Lord of the Rings and etc... ^^

    Hi, I'm Blankas.
    These are drawing exercises.


    The Lord of the Rings and etc... ^^
    This is an image about 'The Lord of the Rings'.
    (I love that novel and movie. )
    a man in behind is a skeleton lord in 'The Lord of the Rings : The Return of the King', and the other man is Aragorn.
    A skeleton lord see Aragorn, but Aragorn don't know... this is a simple image about that situation.


    The Lord of the Rings and etc... ^^
    a simple exercise.. A man that has something to complain of.


    The Lord of the Rings and etc... ^^
    a simple exercise.. A Buddhist priest that is lost in meditation.


    The Lord of the Rings and etc... ^^
    a simple exercise.. An Evil man.



    Waiting your opinions... these are very helpful.
    Have a nice day~

    The first one totally blow me away. The other ones have good expressions. Please keep posting.

    On a side note: the ring wrath in your first drawing reminds me of Tang Seng (or Xuan Zang), a chinese buddist who travelled far to get the scrolls of budda's teaching in the story of Journey to the West (or known as Monkey King in some part). I think it's the crown part. =P

    That's not a RingWraith, it's the dead King from the Paths of the Dead.

    You may now go about your business.

    Who are the ring Wrath then? I thought they were the same, the dead Kings were ring wrath and tried to get the ring back. I never read the book, so my knowledge is limited to the movie version.

    So that's your problem then! I think I can honstly say I know the books by heart. The King in the Paths of the Dead was the king of the nation who had sworn to fight alongside Isildur against Sauron, but betrayed Isildur and ran away because they secretly worshipped Sauron. So Isildur cursed them, which is why the heir of Isildur (Aragorn) could lift the curse by convincing them to fight for him. (Or they fought for him because that would lift the curse, to be more correct)
    The Ringwraiths were kings from long before that who were given the 9 Rings of Men and who were corrupted by them.

    Thus ends today's J.R.R. Tolkien lecture. Tune in next week for the truth behind Pipeweed.


    EDIT: Sorry to make this tangent in your thread. I love the LOTR pic!! The hands in your images remind of the Hildebrandt Brothers. Strong, well-constructed and rendered.

    Ohhh, now I get it, the King of the dead were the green ones Aragorn gathered in a cave in deep mountain!! I need to rewatch that movie to refresh my memory. Thanks for the insight.

    Thanks~

    Thanks, poise.
    I hope to see you a painted image... I'll try to paint.. ^^
    (Actually, My painting skill is very poor;; I must study hard about that;
    Um, Chronicles of Naria?
    Sorry, I don't know about that book;;
    But I'll try to find and read it.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------


    Thanks, look.
    Blow you away~? Wow~ Thanks~
    Um, Tang Seng? Xuan Zang?
    Sorry, I don't know them;;;
    I have to search for their images.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------


    Thanks for your thread, glikster.
    It's a good description about the dead king and Aragorn.. It's very useful.
    Have you ever read "Silmarillion"?
    It's a book about a history of the J.R.R. Tolkein's world.. I love that book.

    Ah.. Hildebrandt Brothers?
    I don't know them;;; I'll find their images and informations;;


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------


    Thanks again about your posts.
    Have a nice day~

    blankas Oh yeah, I read the Silmarillion a whole lot. Also the Lost Tales and Unfinished Tales.
    And ignore their Tolkien works - I think that's their worst work (as far as depicting Middle-Earth and its denizens)
