Return of Lord of the Rings Sundays

"Samwise the Brave"
18x24" white charcoal and pencil on paper

Hey guys, just finished a new character portrait sketch for my return of Lord of the Rings Sundays. I've been meaning to get back to this and I'm happy I finally have a little time to get back into routine with it. I'll be posting them here and also on my blog, so please check back occasionally, I hope you all like the finish!

I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but your use of white for the highlights is always amazing.

Another glorious pencil rendering! This is really lovely and right on the money likeness-wise. Hey, if you take requests for this: How bout doing an orc for your next one? Those have always been my favorite characters from that movie/book franchise.

Minder- Thanks so much! :) I love working on toned paper so I can apply those highlights.

Christine- Thanks! I'm so happy the likeness is spot on! I had a lot of fun with this. I can promise you'll see one of them soon ;)
