EDITED

 

New links!

I scanned again, but I didn't retouch, or edit, or resize them. That's why I can scanned much more pictures. It's still not the whole book, but albums contain much more usable reference pictures.

Thank you so much! I assure you these won't go in vain, personally I will make use of the gundabad weapons. I tried to make them but found their pictures on the internet to be very low pixel. This changes it. You're great!

Yes, I would have thought about it before...

I like Weta's artwork, I also learned art (traditional), just I rarely draw because I'm lazy.

I've collected the other pictures formerly because I also wanted to use those as a reference,( I thought maybe I will draw it once, or use it as a reference), or just I liked it. 

The most pictures are linked to dwarves or Erebor , because dwarves are my favourite Tolkien race.

Another album with Weta concepts (not scanned pictures) from LOTR and The Hobbit: https://imgur.com/a/0mKce

Not so large like the scanned pictures but I think a quite good references.

That would require full book scans.

Yes, it would require, but the book is larger than A/4, and my scanner's size is A/4. And frankly I usually cut the texts, becasue wider and longer images would require much more retouching and so the making of the images would take much more time. (There are pictures which are made more than two days in all) Also, the images' size would be much more megabytes. The images are 600 dpi resolution and png format so they are big enough....

 

I looked again the books, and I scanned 64 pictures on yesterday. And these just were from two books.... (I think I will scan more from the two BOTFA books.) Maybe the finishing all of them will takes months.

Yes, this is my favourite too. It will have a lot of references, and scanning will take hours.. :s
