Just seeing how the new icon looks.

You artsy people inspired me to try a Frolijah pic. May I say that it's a bitch to get that kid's eyes and lips just right. (Note to others who are trying to draw him: it didn't look right till I added the deep shadows under and around his eyes. Maybe he needs sleep. Distinctive, in any case.)

I don't like Elijah, but that's quite the skillful drawing! Great job!

"Maybe he needs sleep."

Maybe he wears eyeshadow.

And just for the record, I did NOT just say that. ;)

He may very well wear eyeshadow. You never know with these crazy actors.

In any case, thanks. :)
Oh, and while I like pretty much every last person and thing in the film, I did think, upon seeing it again recently, that they portrayed Frodo as rather too delicate (compared to book-Frodo). Did he have to fall down *quite* so much?

However, the Two Towers trailer gives me hope--he looks more weather-beaten, and that close-up snarl when he threatens someone with Sting (taming Smeagol perhaps) is a good sign. Perhaps he starts to become the tougher book-Frodo we all know and love.

Yes, he was entirely too delicate. Mr. Wood must have had bruises on his bum. It was kind of stupid how they had him falling so much!

I agree. The Two Towers looks like it might be a better movie than the first. I hope they do make him seem tougher.

oooh, beautiful! I draw Elijah all the time (I haven't got a scanner, or I would have inflicted the pictures on the rest of you) so I appreciate the difficulties. You wouldn't consider posting a full-size version somewhere, would you? I really like it.

and, BTW, Elijah in eyeliner...

Yup; just put it on my webpages. Here: http://home.earthlink.net/~ladyirony/ElijahFrododrwg.jpg

If you ever get your hands on a scanner, do be sure to inflict these things on us. Never too much pretty-boy art around. :)
