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)

How absolutely charming! I don't know what I love the most: his earnest Professor-y face, the intricated background, the pet dragon, the hands or the Middle-earth map... Adore the texture work on the jacket and flowers.
