The colour versions of three of my contributions to the 2015 “Beyond Bree" Tolkien Calendar. The linearts for all five artworks can be found here (two are b/w only). The three above are entitled:
- Ancalimë in Emerië
- The White Tree
- Faramir in Ithilien
And yes, you were correct, whoowndachiefs, Faramir does look a little different (more naturalistic, I hope). Don’t know whether that’s due to all the practice I’ve had with drawing faces (
one in particular) lately, but I wouldn’t rule it out entirely ;).
Another small change from my usual style is that I used ink for the underdrawing which I didn’t with my pre-Sherlock Tolkien art, but that was mostly due to time-constraints with this project. I realised a while ago that I work faster in watercolour when I “fix” the underdrawing in ink instead of leaving it pencil only.
