Art:: Letters from Home

Artist: Beth
Title: Letters from Home
Rating: G
Inspiration: "Then Legolas built a grey ship in Ithilien, and sailed down the Anduin and so over Sea; and with him it is said, went Gimli the Dwarf. And when that ship passed an end was come in Middle-earth of the Fellowship of the Ring." (Tale of Years, "Later Events Concerning the Members of the Fellowship of the Ring", F.A.1541)
Media: Graphite
Artists notes:  In a series of stories I have co written, a trunk of letters was found in the hull of that ship.  Legolas and Gimli spend part of the first winter in the West reading those letters.

Oh the full version (I clicked a few times on the image) is even more full of details, especially Gimli is masterfully done!

I like the composition of the picture very much and the background details. I also really like the expressiveness of the tilt of Legolas's head.

Lovely detail, easily recognisable characters, love how solidly Gimli is sitting - very dwarfish *g*

Thank you. In this series, I write from Gimli's pov, so I am happy to hear you think I got him right in the drawing!

You can really see the characters personalities from the way you've drawn them, and it's such a lovely scene! :D

The quote makes me feel sad, but the drawing is wonderful, and filled with detail!

Thank you. I'm happy you liked the drawing. I always thought the quote was sad, which kind of prompted the series this is based on so we could see the beginning of a new life, rather than the end of an old one.

Very nicely drawn! Love the expressions and poses of Dwarf and Elf.

Thank you. It was a bit tricky getting much facial expression since I have to draw on a fairly small scale to be able to scan the drawing.

This is beautiful! Good job in this!

Why thank you! It's nice to hear the opinion of Tolkien fans. I've been drawing most of my life, but just started doing story illustrations in the last few months and my family thinks I've kind of lost it a little with my dwarf/elf obsession. LOL

Such letters must have been entrusted to those sailing to Tol Eressea ever. Beautiful drawing!
