How to Draw Lord of the Rings


J. R. R. Tolkien's most popular work - The Lord of the Rings is a great place to 'draw' ideas from - as yes...

There are so many different types of creatures.

Elves, dwarves, orcs, dragons, and yes...

Cave Trolls!


One thing I find really cool with respect to creating drawing lessons and well - just art in general...

Is imagining what certain characters/monsters, etc. would look like - based on the author's description of them in the book.

How about yourself... ever tried this?

Lord of the Rings

Tolkien does an amazing job of this - and even though we've got a nice visual from the movie adaptation...

We can still take things a step further, and come up with different takes on the looks of things.

Just about half way through 'The Silmarillion' (as I'm typing this) - another great read!...

I'm thinking a character like Tulkas or Melkor - would be a great lesson.

But of course - any character from both the books, and those from the movies...

Will be fun to cartoonify and create.

To get started then, check out the list below!...
