'Before the daylong dusk ended and true night came again they had crawled and stumbled to its very feet. With a gasp Frodo cast himself on the ground. Sam sat by him.'

JRR Tolkien: 'The Lord of the Rings', Book 6, Chapter 3: Mount Doom

Frodo looks ready to die, and poor Sam doesn't look that much better. They look so much older, and their so thin (especially for hobbits)! It's a merical they made it at all. Great pic! I LOVE IT!!!!

Such a beautiful picture (I think your work makes me need a thesaurous; I keep running out of synonyms to beautiful and spectacular...); the emotions are so vivid and the colors really help set the mood. The expression on Frodo's face is so poignant: just the despair and helplessness in facing so great a task; and you can see how worried Sam is about him. Wonderful!!!

I don't get what the "book 4" or something means. There are just 3 Lord of the Rings-books, but I think I'll be wrong. Keep up the great artwork. Ich liebe deine art... don't know German word for it.

The Lord of the Rings is really 6 books - two to each volume. So the fact that this is from book six means the second part of RotK that deals with Frodo and Sam in Mordor.

Perfect depiction, Anke. Nothing against them, but I get kind of tired of the anime/Elijah Wood/looks-like-little-kids hobbits. This is exactly how I imagined the journey through Mordor. Beautiful work, I wish I could paint like you!!!
