LOTR Aragorn taunts Sauron by xshelaghx LOTR Aragorn taunts Sauron by xshelaghx
"Long have you hunted me. Long have I endured it. No more. Behold the sword of Elendil." -Aragorn-

Scene from the extended version of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. Aragorn taunts Sauron with the sword that once brought him down in an attempt to draw the Eye away from Frodo.

Mechanical pencils (4B B 2H), 8B graphite stick, handy dandy eraser shield, water colour pencils that needed touching up in PS because I should have tested them out a bit before painting on an otherwise completed drawing :P

A decent Stooge-poke would have been more effective.

This is a great piece! But before some really rude LotR freak jumps down your throat, just know it's not "Long have I endured it" it's "Long have I eluded you." ;)

The shading on his face is AMAZING. And the way you drew the Palantir (sp?) is also AMAZING. Keep up the great work!

Great work! I think the colour on the sword is a nice subtle touch =P You've done a really good job of making the sword look metallic... and his expression is nicely done as well. I like the strong shades on his face.

Lovely work! =)

that's the awesomeness of it.. He knows what will happen and that he will have to (mentally) fight Sauron but he still does it... :D

That's one of my favorite scenes! Lovely work on Aragorn's face.... <3 Viggo Mortinson... :D

I used water colour pencils before and I love working with them, if they are by themselves... not with pencil due to the smearing of the pencil with the water. :D

The extended version has loads of great scenes! I understand their being cut as not important to the story but I'm glad they were released.

I used the water colour pencils as regular pencils because they were at hand but I didn't like the look so I thought I would try adding water and then it was fun so I thought I would try wetting the pencil and colouring which damaged the paper and then I noticed I was messing up a finished drawing. DOH! So ya, they might be fun by themselves. :D

They work really well with actual water colour paper too.

I have the extended version of ROTK and I loved the scene with The Voice of Sauron.... its a shame they decided to take that out because in the book it was a pivotal part....

Anywho, lovely work! :D
