This is rather cropped down, but there wasn't anything important about the lost inches - you get the idea from this. (also, i worked more on the original, Frodo looks much better, but the image is currently not in my possession, for various reasons - I'll scan it when I get it back.) Aragorn looks rather like Viggo.. well.. I suppose I just think he makes a good Aragorn - him having a beard and long hair just makes sense to me. (Don't go on about the blood of Numenor and all - i know already) But he needs longer hair - I don't suppose rangers really would care too much about hair-cutting and shaving o_o; Plus I just think beardless-shorthaired Aragorn looks too much like the pantsless hobbit-molester Strider from Ralph Bakshi's LOTR *shiver* Also I figured him to be scarred - 80+ years in the wild had to relent SOME damage. Yes that's the Evenstar necklace he's got - I know it doesn't exist really but I thought it was a good idea, ok? Plus it adds to the elfy glow I wanted to get across - and it gives a better idea who he's thinking about. ranty ranty. This is me making up excuses. I like this image a LOT, it's so glowy~ 'At the hill's foot Frodo found Aragorn, standing still and silent as a tree; but in his hand was a small golden bloom of elanor, and a light was in his eyes. He was wrapped in some fair memory; and as Frodo looked at him he knew he beheld things as they once had been in this same place. For the grim years were removed from the face of Aragorn, and he seemed clothed in white, a young lord tall and fair; and he spoke words in the Elvish tongue to one whom Frodo could not see. Arwen vanimelda, namarie! he said, and then he drew a breath, and returning out of his thoughts he looked at Frodo and smiled. 'Here is the heart of Elvendom on earth,' he said, 'and here my heart dwells ever, unless there be a light beyond the dark roads that we still must tread, you and I. Come with me!' And taking Frodo's hand in his, he left the hill of Cerin Amroth and came there never again as a living man.' - The Fellowship of the Ring, Book I, Chapter VI, Lothlorien
