Artwork Description

Because ole' Tommy and Goldie were compeletely omitted from the movie (Laughing out loud), I decided to create my own scene. Well, sorta. This is actually a drawing I submitted for a little competition against another artist (heh). It's not as tight as I had hoped, though. Oh yeah, I don't know about 'fanart', but how does a tribute to tolkein sound? Laughing out loud

I've been looking for a good picture of Goldberry & Tom for our wedding table name cards (we've got different couples from books we love as pictures on the tables so our guests will know where to sit), and this is just completely perfect.
May I please use it for our decorations?

Wonderful drawing, the detail and shading are marvelous and the characters look gorgeous, just as i would have imagined them.

I love your work. I had a collie many years ago named Bombadil. His sire was Bilbo Baggins. Patter

i perused your impressive gallery and determined that here was a good place to post a comment. this would stand up well in almost any venue. rock solid technique, strong composition, and it breathes life. classic.

Well versed in the 'masters'... your illustrations are anything but stagnent, and your asmosphere and lighting are always just as attended to as your characters. Very, very nice indeed. You don't teach by any chance, do you?

Terry, are you kidding me? Laughing out loud Jk! naw, I'm leaving it b & w, as was the original intention. I might paint another scene featuring Tom & Goldberry with Hobbits once all my school projects are finished. Thanks!

Socar...Wow, thanks!! Smile I had originally planned to upload a better version of this from my digi cam, but unfortunately it ran into some problems. But I plan to replace this when the cam's fixed. thanks again, :)//....Christos, notice what? Laughing out loud Thank you!

Thanks guys!

James, thank you for the kind words! And I must say that I also love your splendiforous watercolors--they have a certain quality reminescent of Dulac. Thank you again!

aridante's picture

Thanks, Katy! I totally agree--there's something about the scene that seems so pinnacle, as in the first bit of magic the Hobbits encounter. It's a shame Tolkien didn't include them in the following books.

What a masterpiece! It's gorgeous! Her pose especially is wonderful--she seems to spin and dance. I also love the lighting and texture you've got into this. I can't say enough good things about it.
