Probably the last Lord of the Rings pic for a while - a commission for akai-no-akuma from deviantART. It's Éomer, post-War of the Ring, with his son Elfwine.

Since I absolutely loved the Rohirric clothes and armour design in the movies, I couldn't help but use similar designs here. But Éomer, as always, has been de-Urbanized. I never really liked Urban as Éomer.


Please note: I won't be replying to comments here (for reasons, see my main page). If you have a question, see my
FAQ first, and if it's not answered there, drop me an email. ;)

*First comment dance*
Finally the commenting works again after the pause caused by speeding up something and I can comment on this. 1 I love the colour scheme in it, very Rohirric. I also like the flow of their hair and the banners... well, I like the whole picture and I like most of your pictures, so saying more isn't necessary.

Wow! I’m amazed at all the detail you’ve managed to get into this. It’s absolutely breathtaking! I espeacially like the flags waving in the wind. I’m not quite good enough to get that effect... and the celtic knots are great! Perfect. I love this!

Nice draw! i like the colors!! I just saw a conceptual mistake. Their faces looks most like elfs. I mean, the people of Rohan are 95% with beard and this ones are more like shave.
