So honored to be a part of the Ages of Arda Anthology! This is a portion of one of my two submissions featuring the Blue Wizards. Drawing them was an excuse to draw ridiculous blue clothes since there are like, two sentences on these guys in lotr. Also, thanks a bunch to followers new and old for your support <3
For my lack of activity here’re some wip shots of Ages of Arda Anthology project…had to recompose this thing so many times till I found, hopefully, a more solid solution than earlier versions. Reasons for my absence you can read here …that stuff :/
A cropped preview of another piece for Ages of Arda Anthology. Featuring the original squad of Turin, Beleg, and the ever grumpy Mîm at a First Age pub. Guess which of the three is sober (hint: not the dwarf)
Here are my first drafts for @aoaanthology ! I’m doing two pieces, a single-page for Haleth and a double-spread for Eowyn. I wanted to do something LOTR + something Silm, and give a change to what I usually do. Which mean less elves, more race of men ! Here you have a crop of the Haleth piece draft and two possible versions for the double spread. I haven’t chosen yet, feel free to express preferences. It’ll probably change 3656848 times before the final drafts but oh well…
Guess it’s done??? Though I’ll wait til tomorrow (local time) to submit it to the mods in case I want to do any last minute revision
Anyways I figured out how to cheat by using photoshop ‘match color’, which saved me tons of time ゜ω゜ But because of that method I came up with so many different coloring versions… the first pic is from one of them the 2nd is another.
If you see any details it’s mostly just an illusion. I can’t draw details. → →
Finally got my illustration done for the Ages of Arda Anthology! Here’s a little sneak peek. I hope everyone who’s interested in purchasing a copy of the book is able to do so. The proceeds are going to a really good cause!
