TLD Intro: Rohan by Merlkir TLD Intro: Rohan by Merlkir
I've drawn many race portraits for our upcoming Last Days intro movie that will...well, tell the player what the setting in Middle Earth is before the War of the Ring. A Rohirrim scout takes a good look at a new, weird kind of orcs they cought sneaking through the Mark.

---- pencil into my Moleskine + some PS.

One thing I always liked about the mod (and your art) is that while you follow the books to an almost faultless degree, you recognize some of the movies good ideas conceptually and use the better ones to influence your art....in other words you don't go out of your way to avoid the movie art cause it's pretty damn good....except I really don't like the movie wargs

This is fantastic, I really like the shadowed detail, not too much of it either. It's great.
