This scene from ROTK is hardly ever depicted. Great job on the moment. The stiff-lipped determination fo the Rangers and Aragorn's pose of command and are well done.

Thanks. It's a nice scene and it should be done more frequently.

Apparently all the elf-loving artists have yet to realize the Sons of Elrond and Legolas are also present. Wink/Razz  The fact that the scene is nocturnal may have gotten it passed over more than once.

eheh, sorry, I'm not used to seeing one of my fave characters in fanart. Most people have only seen the movie, so when I mention Elrohir or Halbarad or Beregond they're all like "Who? What are you talking about?" It's so sad.

This is after Aragorn & company leave the paths of the dead, so Return of the King.

Those aren't the dead. Don't want to spoil it for you, but there were significant changes that the films made. One of which was this scene.

Thank you. I've always seen Aragorn this way. The long hair look didn't do it for me.

Awesome! I love this part of the story. The dark colors you picked are a wonderful representation of the tension and foreboding from that scene. Really great job!

There's a great sense of the huge numbers Aragorn raised here. At least, that's the point that particularly strikes me about the picture; I like it!

You're right, this was a decisive moment that stayed in the shadows. He did raise an impressive army along the coast before storming the corsairs at Pelargir. Glad you liked it though.

Wow, this image facinates me! It's really amazing! Although I'm not sure who's the person touching the black round boulder...I can't remember all the details of that scene, but I thought it was Aragorn who did, but I could be wrong :P

What medium did you use for this and how large is it?

That is my interpretation of Aragorn leaning against the Stone of Erech. I've always seen Aragorn very differently than the film's.

Incredibly realistic image, looks like historical drawing, very very nice concepts friend.

Yes, the mysterious black rock that is *not* a palantir. Just another mysterious relic from Numenor. Dunno whether it was put there by Isildur - could have been before the downfall (I mean, it IS a big rock...).

Nice to see some illustration of scenes not in the film :)

The globe is the Stone of Erech, some huge black rock that Isildur put there.

(I'm still wondering how they got it there...)

Ahw! Nice, for some strange reason I never paid that attention to that detail in the books. Thank you for the explanation.
And, heh, looks like isildur was a very busy man, for the many works he bring up.

Thats Minas Tirith in the background. This scene takes place during the battle of Pelennor Fields, after Aragorns arrival.
