this in an sketch, so I'm gonna move it into scraps later. It's benn a long time since I draw something, and I've lost my skill... just trying to regain it
I made Legolas look up AT Gimli to make it feel as if Legolas is looking up TO him. Sometimes when reading LotR I had the feeling that the dwarf was taking care of the elf...
"[...]But you comfort me, Gimli, and I am glad to have you standing nigh with your stout legs and your hard axe. I wish there more of your kin among us. But even more would I give for a hundred good archers of Mirkwood. We shall need them. The Rohirrim have good bowmen after their fashion, but there are too few here, too few."
"It is dark for archery," - said Gimli. - "Indeed it is time for sleep. Sleep! I feel the need of it, as never I thought any dwarf could. Riding is tiring work. Yet my axe is restless in my hand. Give me a row or orc-necks and room to swing and all weariness will fall from me!"
