This one is great!!! Gollum is my favorite charector and you drew him very well. Good job with the water and expression.

Had I but a fraction of your talent my epilogue gallery would be full now. As this is not the case... Great work! Tolkien would be proud.

The detail in this piece is great. I love the reflection, and your depiction of Gollum. Also the dead body, once again, great!

the scene isnt a scene per say that happened, but i rememeber gollum telling frodo and sam that he once tried to touch the dead people in the marshes.

I must admit I enjoy seeing your more colorful rendering of this scene, though as to whether thats accurate or not, I dont remember. I do know seeing these pictures really makes me want to read Lord of the Rings again!

thanks mark, i really thought the dead marshes should have less colour, but smeagol has so little colour in him that i thought the picture would be too grey.artistic liscence.

Guest's picture

When I read your interview, it sounded extremely sad and so compelling, that now each of your paintings has a new meaning... I'm still waiting for epilogue.net to except my work!

Guest's picture

This is yet another superb painting! So far, I can see the two faces and the goldfish. The reflection is also outstanding!

Yep another cracker here Christiaan, the water itself is really well done, add to that the reflections and the bodies beneath -not to mention all the reeds and insect life and this seems more impressive the longer I look at it.
Mind-bogglingly good.

Outstanding work on that water and the reflections chris !! great as always

frodo's picture

wow! I like Gollums expression, and his hand reaching out, is well drawn. The longer you look the more you see in the marshes, great work Chris! as always....

Art at its best.
