LOTR- Courage by wynahiros LOTR- Courage by wynahiros
For my Dad, for Christmas. Completed while at ORC. Crappy title, I know. Non-movieverse Shelob.

"No onslaught more fierce was ever seen in the savage world of beasts, where some desperate small creature armed with little teeth, alone, will spring upon a tower of horn and hide that stands above its fallen mate"
(The Two Towers, The Choices of Master Samwise)

I messed up my own size scale a bit. *many apologies*

Here's the original thumbnail if you're interested.


Materials: Mechanical pencil.


--Wyna
Lord of the Rings is (C) J.R.R. Tolkien
Shelob design is (C) Olanda "Wyna Hiros" Fong-Surdenas

I think my favorite scene in the books so far is when Samwise thrashes Gollum and then fights off Shelob. One of the biggest reasons I love Sam!

This is so wonderful!

Well technically my mom read it to me when I was little, but I barely remember anything so it's like I'm reading it for the first time. It is very exciting indeed ^_^

Very nice!! And She's jJust about the size I imagined Her while reading. Even if it would be unlikely Sam could wound Her bad enough with Sting if She was THAT huge. But my arachnophobic mind imagined Her that big anyway. :D And anyway the film had Her way too small seeing to the books's description.

Either way, this is AMAZING. And I love that you did this with just a mechanical pencil.

Within every hobbit there lies enough courage to fight a giant spider. Excellent drawing. A wonderful rendition. That's straight from the book. Seriously, a fantastic drawing.

I wanted to do a drawing of that very scene.
I was going to call it; 'The Rage of Samwise Gamgee'
Can't remember the exact words, but I love it how it speaks of Shelob delightedly devouring great warriors from the race of men, elfish knights even, but when she meets Sam, fighting with tears of fury for his 'slain' master, she recieves a sting she will not forget.

Yes,"mate" indeed :D Just gorgeous. I love the difference in sizes, it gives such a strong impact to the whole drawing, and the perspective in her legs is perfect.
