Haldir of Lorien by Elflover21 Haldir of Lorien by Elflover21
As suggested by :icondarkendrama:, here is Haldir of Lorien. I also happened to see that her birthday is tomorrow, and since I don't have any points to spend, this is my :iconhappybirthdayplz: to her.

Took about 6 and 1/2 hours, on 18"x12" paper with graphite pencils 2H-8B, a blending stump, and a tissue. The scanner made it dark, but I hope it's still okay:)

I actually have that site in my favorites, since I went looking for screencaps. But I'm glad to hear she has Craig's support, and that sounds like a lot of fun!

Thank you, he's one of my favorites, too:D Who are your other two?

Oh...
I think the others are Boromir and Aragorn.

But there is Gandalf, too. hmmmm... I think this is more Ian McKellen himself. I am so flashed what he can do only with his voice. (sry my bad english, I hope you understand what I mean)

And your others?

Gandalf, or Ian McKellen, has a very nice voice. Very impressive.

Aragorn is my first favorite character, followed by Legolas, and then I have to divide it up by race: Man, Elf, Hobbit, otherwise I'd never be able to choose.

My scanner keeps making my graphite work lighter and I have to darken up the brightness/contrast on Photoshop XP Wish I had yours lol

Thanks so much!:hug: My scanner does whatever it feels like, really; sometimes it's dark, sometimes it's light, so I always have to adjust in Photoshop!

What type of drawing paper are you using? Do you use a sketchbook?
Reply
:iconelflover21:
Elflover21 Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I use 18" by 12" acid-free and lignin-free sketch paper from Academie. So it's a very large sketch pad, but I have a smaller one for less important drawings, also from Academie. I love their paper because it's so smooth and white and doesn't yellow with age. It's also very lightweight. Over all, I like the way my drawings turn out better than most other sketch papers.

Is it expensive?

Elflover21 Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Um, when Walmart carried it, it was about six bucks...but they've stopped carrying it, at least around here, and I have to get it on Amazon, which is still around six bucks but then with the shipping, it gets close to ten. There's 50 sheets, though, so it lasts me a long time

It's a great version of him. Does he ever smile in the movie?

Now that I think about it, he seems a lot more "open" than Haldir. Haldir usually has this "don't touch me" thing going on. He's like "hey baby...."

True, that's why I decided to think that he was relaxing among friends in a peaceful environment...no orcs, no urak-hai, no dwarves or humans, just fellow elves, no need to be reserved;)

Aw, thank you, but there's not a whole lot of pressure. My birthday is May 21, a long way off yet:) But if you really wanted to, I like Aragorn:D
