This day we fight by Norloth This day we fight by Norloth
I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of Men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship. But it is not this day. An hour of wolves and shattered shields when the Age of Men comes crashing down. But it is not this day. This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good earth, I bid you stand, Men of the West!

------ Aragorn, the Return of the King


It's DONE!!! Oh, I san see stars twinkling around my head...@@ It is already after midnight, but I finished it!:dance::boogie:

I am satisfied with this so far, the first time I spent so much time on my digital painting...can't remember exactly how much time I used, but must be more than 19 hours I guess.:dead: But it is worthy of doing! :happycry:

And attention: THIS IS A BIRTHDAY PRESENT FOR MY MUSE!:love: How I wish I could show him my work...Aww! So happy birthday Viggo! (his birthday is on Oct. 20th)

This is also the entry for two contests. 'Hero' run by :iconbikerscout: and 'Swords Crossed' run by :iconfoudroyant:. :)

Yes, sometimes you can make it worse, this is what I'm worry about. This is why I usually don't go back at traditional works. And I hope I can find my inspiration back at the digital pieces.

I surely won't get mad, if I can't take critiques, then I will get no improve in the future at all! Thanks a lot!

You're welcome! I love to get critique on my own work, because I'm always going back and improving things. I guess I should know when to stop though, because sometimes you can make it worse instead...

Thats the beauty of digital painting, you can save it at different stages and always go back a step if you don't like what you've just done. But I understand not wanting to return to a finished piece after a long time. You need to be emotionally inspired to do justice to a work of art, and after thats gone its hard to get it back again.

Anyway, glad you didnt get mad at me for making a suggestion! I really do like the painting as it is... :)

And that's the first time I hear the criticism about the composition of the picture, much appreciated! I just don't like to re-work on a picture long after I thought I finished it, I will not in the same mood...But, if I have any strong feeling to adjust it I will!
And you again for the comment! :hug:

This definitely has its good points - the action you manage to convey through the movement of his cloak and the horse's blanket, the posture, the texture in certain places, and the way you manage to mute out the background but still make us aware of the setting through simple use of shapes and shading.

But there are two things I could wish to be better. Firstly, Aragorn's face seems unfinished and lacking detail compared to the rest, and it doesnt express as much intensity of emotion as it could. And secondly, I just think its a real shame that the picture is cut off at the bottom. It would have really conveyed the sense of speed and action to show the horse's legs galloping. If it was digitally painted, surely it would be easy enough to extend the canvass to show the full view?

Anyway, its a nice painting, really captures the scene well. :)

No kidding. There was an Elessar statue that was 1/3 of that price, but it sold really quick, which makes me sad. One day I'll get my hands on an Aragorn statue.

I want it too but the price is just beyond what I can afford......2100 yuan is a lot.

This looks exactly like the Sideshow Collectibles statue (I want it... 300 freaking bucks [about 2100 yuan, depending on currency transitions and whatnot...])

Very nice, though! *goes through the rest of your gallery*
