Bard of Esgaroth by JeffChangArt Bard of Esgaroth by JeffChangArt
"Arrow!" said the bowman. "Black arrow! I have saved you to the last. You have never failed me and always I have recovered you. I had you from my father and he from of old. If ever you came from the forges of the true king under the Mountain, go now and speed well!"

One of my entries for the Hobbit Design Contest.
I wanted to spend more time on this piece but work came up and decided to spend today working on Smaug. At the last minute I decided to submit Bard after all just to see what would happen.

Not sure if I'll wind up refining this some more or not.

Re-read the book in preparation for the movie and so it's nice to see scenes people might not remember right off hand.

Thanks! I actually read through LOTR for the first time this summer and I was just starting the Silmarillion when I saw the news for the hobbit design contest so I took a break from it and sped right through the Hobbit. There's definitely quite a few scenes that stay in your mind from the book, though I'm sure everyone has their favorites.
