hunters-Legolas,Gimli by ilxwing hunters-Legolas,Gimli by ilxwing
This is an illustration I've done for a Chinese Tolkien fanbook 'Memories of the Travellers". We have sent it to John Howe as a gift when he came to China. I'm so excited!

I used some Chinese painting skill in these two.

It always impresses me when someone can achieve a good likeness of real faces in a stylized work without resulting in a charicature. Good Job!

Again, beautiful work, nice colors, love the detail. I wonder how Gimli's hanging on; personally, I'd fly off the horse if my feet weren't in the stirrups. :P

This is absolutely fabulous- I love it! The painting is wonderful, and somehow it reminds me of the Disney movie Mulan (perhaps because of the Chinese painting skill you mentioned?). Great job :3

Best,

Melisse

The scenes with Legolas and Gimli on horseback are among my favourites in the book and the film, and you've done a great job portraying them :D

Oh man, my eyes popped when I saw this in my deviation box :excited:
You did a beautiful job on the proportions of everything, I'm sure that perspective was a little challenging! Arod looks beautiful, I like how you gave him a little bit of a more draftier look :nod: And may I just say that Legolas looks fiiiine in this x] His expression, cracks me up compared to Gimli's :XD:
I love the stylized appearance of this and I'm sure that John Howe will love it :heart: Fantastic job!
