Traditional Art Contest: My Favourite Character

Hosted by Lembas
Description This contest requires you to Depict your favourite LotR character in the artistic medium of your choice, but there's a twist- your favourite character must be your own interpretation. Contestants are free to chose to use any traditional art medium or digital drawing program such as photoshop, painter, DA MURO or Tegaki E for their entry. Photomanipulation and Graphic making are not allowed.

Participants

I'm starting sign up prior to RotR in order to generate interest and *hopefully* stop the contests being a failure. Feel Free to Sign Up for any contest that takes your interest- signing up doesn't mean that you must take part, simply that you'd like to - Co hosts are also welcome :D

The only one So Far :)

I'm tempted to enter even though I'm hosting, so if there's little interest I'll also take part :)

Okay, question on the traditional art one. :P Does our interpretation have to be reasonable in a Middle-Earth setting? Like, let's say I do an interpretation of Legolas as a construction worker (this is just an example, not what I'd do :P). Would something like that be okay, where we put LotR characters into a different setting/time period? Because I have a few ideas for something like that, but I don't think I have the talent to re-create them in a "traditional" way.

I didn't specifically define what 'your interpretation' means so I think it might be interesting to see what people come up with if they do decide to go beyond the Middle-Earth parameters. All I wanted was to not see a picture of Liv as Arwen or Elijah as Frodo or a copy of a film promo/cap as I think it's more of a challenge.

Personally I think that not Middle Earth interpretations would be awesome to see especially if they;re as funny as this

^ Haha, I was going to mention Broship of the Rings. :lol: I didn't though because I was planning a serious picture. :P Excellent, though, now I can go start on my idea. :D (Which means I'm joining that contest too, obviously)
