Very good art, though.

Very nice, but lol why pick Snape?
It has been reported that some victims of rape, during the act, would retreat into a fantasy world from which they could not WAKE UP. In this catatonic state, the victim lived in a world just like their normal one, except they weren't being raped. The only way that they realized they needed to WAKE UP was a note they found in their fantasy world. It would tell them about their condition, and tell them to WAKE UP. Even then, it would often take months until they were ready to discard their fantasy world and PLEASE WAKE UP

Very nice astrinax,

I like Alan Rickman as a choice for Prince Imrahil, but it seems almost everyone will recognize him for his other work. That goblin is amazing. For Men of Dale, I think that can replace my Bard very nicely.

Thank you very much and keep up the good work,
Robert J.

Edit:
I've updated the post with the wizards. I'm still not sure which Radagst I will use. As we get more we'll put them all in the main post to keep them highlighted.

Very nice work!

Though, Radagast should look more brown...

Especially Prince Brand looks awesome to me.

Snaga looks amazing, as do the Nazgul! Also, could you make a new Boromir, since the EA one doesn't look like him at all?

Theodred had dark hair in the movie. Yeomen Archers' helmets do not look rohirrim'ish.

Radagast could be more brown:

Grishnákh could also be slightly closer to the original.

Shagrat also looks pretty weird comparing to the original.
Posted Image


Very good job to the rest. The Nazgûl look awesome.

No that Theodred is from film...I bet it is. Yeoman helmet is Rohirric because they had many various helmets in film (look again on some of soldiers). But yeah...Grishnakh and Shagrat look very original... :p

I'd like to stick more to the movies with Grishnak and Shagrat. I mean, in the movies he's an Uruk, in the game also, but on your palantír image he's a common orc.

Gotta agree with you.

Especially Shagrat looks like he would have been espaced from Warcraft! I like Xingdao Fan's portraits (from film) better, I love that Radagast from Weta's Decipher Card.

And the wizard's might need a little tune, they don't look very unique. How about adding a leather cap or metal cap (like Merlin has in Excalibur). Or black hair, with raven-look?

Don't mean to whine, the portraits are GREAT, just saying my opinion out loud...
