The Black Riders came to Weathertop, to take the Ring back from Frodo 'the ring bearer', to their Dark Lord of Mordor, but Frodo resisted and striking out! crying aloud the names of Oelbereth and Gilthoniel.

thanks thats exactly what I was trying to`s always difficult to show someone who`s invisible, so that was my way around it make Frodo blue/green. Of coarse the blackriders should really be shown as they were in the film, white! was a fudged compromise on my part really to leave them black...

I like this one a lot. The nightmarish mood, and the wavy lines and colour in Frodo. It really shows how I imagine what may one see wearing the ring.

Yea it`s a very diffcult to show them, when there all invisible, so your seeing it through frodo`s experiences of the event...
