Finalist Lord of the Rings 2018 - Sam Gamgee in Osgiliath
« on: October 02, 2018, 02:57:45 pm »
My entry into last year's LOTR category at Warhammer Fest.
Pleased I managed a finalist pin, it was an extremely difficult category this year.
I think the palette didn't help me - while I was trying to keep true to the film and match the colours of the scenery and character, it was too drab. If I was doing it again i'd include some pop of a contrasting colour or saturate the tones a bit more to exaggerate it slightly.
Think I was most happy with the spilled box of salt on the ground, representing Sam's loss of innocence from this point of the journey onwards  ;D ::)
I did managed to win the Lord of the Rings Warhammer Community painting competition with it though, and even got a nod from the actor Sean Astin for it on twitter
