A character and costume design sketch of Merry (with an unfinished Frodo cut off behind him; I'll have sketches of Frodo and Sam done soon). Merry seemes to me like a very outdoorsy type, and I tried to make his clothes reflect that. The little tasseled jacket in particular feels somewhat gypsyish to me. If his pose looks strange, it's because he's half-leaning against a tree, which you can barely see in this rough sketch. Coloured version coming, um, whenever.
