Fool of a Took by Fantaasiatoidab Fool of a Took by Fantaasiatoidab
"Anyways, you need people of intelligence on this type of mission... quest... thing"

I loved Pippin and Merry in the books, but I must admit, I love them even more in the movies!!! Billy Boyd & Dominic Monaghan were brilliant and hilarious duo. I like watching LOTR bonus disks over and over again just because these two are so funny :aww:

I know that my Peregrin doesn't look like Billy, but I'm still quite happy that I did draw him :)

Date : 29.10.2012
Used : 3H, F, B, 4B, mechanical pencils (0,3&0,5&0,7mm), blending stick (for the background, not face/clothes/hair)
Time : 6h 30min

It's so beautifully done! How du you manage drawing it so darkly with clear Libra? And do you scan it or something, 'cause when I take picture of my drawing it looks nothing like this awesome art work :/ :)

Thank you! I do scan my drawings, it's the best way to show your art. Scanning changes the way drawing looks a bit but taking a photo of your drawing is even more awful :)

I love this mate... Could you give me some pointers

Much appreciated! :)
Well, I think it's not my place to give you pointers, since I'm still learning myself. Though, I can tell you some tips that I've found useful.

Firstly, always choose a high quality reference photo, then it's so much easier to draw + you can put more detail into the piece. Then use grid method to get the proportions exactly right. I usually use 4H or 3H for the skin. I add up to 4 layers of pencil and then I add a little bit softer pencil (it depends how dark the skin has to look).
For the hair I use 0,3mm mechanical pencil. Then I use 3H to color all the hair with it. After that I use my little eraser pencil to go over the hair. And then I do some more hair again with 0,3mm mechical pencil. It's a long process, but it's fun (at least for me) :)
As for the background, I sometimes use blending stick to get it very smooth.

I hope it helps. If you want to know anything else, let me know ;)

Yes, I always time myself, it's kinda cool :D It's fun when I finally finish the drawing and then look at the time (I usually loose track of time completely while drawing). Sometimes I draw 7hours straight :P

I'm also a LOTRs fan...I'm in the process of reading the book (all three books in one), and I've already read the Hobbit. Of course, I have the box set for the movies as well.

Your drawing is very realistic, absolutely fantastic!

It's sucha beautiful portrait, I can't help but be amazed.
I especially like the way you manipulate blurred and sharp lines, it's brilliant.
Definitely one of the best artworks I've ever seen.

Oh wow, your comment is very generous. I'm very glad that you noticed blurred and sharp lines, I felt very nervous drawing them because I had never done something like this before. Thank you very much! It means a lot to me :)

You say: "Billy Boyd & Dominic Monaghan were brilliant and hilarious duo. I like watching LOTR bonus disks over and over again just because these two are so funny :aww: " Oh my word....you've no idea! When you've seen them together in person, that's when you know how crazy these two really are!!!! And yes, I have! I've met them both...actually all of the Hobbits...twice! This is an excellent piece of work. I can't critique you on artistic ability as I'm a photographer and not a person who draws, but I love it!!!!
