JRR Tolkien by AudreyBenjaminsen JRR Tolkien by AudreyBenjaminsen
Let me first just say that I am so very very VERY VERY verrrryyy stoked for the Hobbit movie this December. And then secondly, without further ado... a tribute to the brains behind it all... the man the legend, the eyebrows... Mister John Ronald Reuel Tolkien! (I did not even know "Reuel" was a name- but I suppose it is.) I really have been working my butt off with painting this semester, so for this project I felt the need to indulge in a well needed frenzy of line work.

(graphite/digital colors and textures)

I'd say the work paid off. The background is intricately detailed but not overwhelmingly so, and Tolkien's expression is perfect - he looks as wise as Gandalf and as friendly as Bilbo (I apologize for how cheesy that was, but I couldn't think of any other adequate description).

I love this so much! I like it because  of the attention to details and the execution of your technique. You captured his essence, and it is more realistic, I think, than a photo-realistic image of him. Great job! It's going in my favorites. I'm working on a compilation of illustrations inspired by his songs and poems :)
