It has truly been a great week and I can't remember when the last time I drew something on each day of the week last (oh yes I can, that was in … Continue reading Tolkien Week: Day 7 – A wizard is never late, but a Dwarf might be!
Hello again! It is day six of Tolkien Week. Tomorrow is sunday and the last day of the week. I have not yet decided what I will draw tomorrow. Today however, I wanted to tackle a Vala. I choose Aulë and while I am not satisfied with how he looks (like, even I do not … Continue reading Tolkien Week: Day 6 – Aulë
Ok, so, I decided to step into the realm of bad guys and servants of Morgoth! Without further introduction (because it is late, and I am tired) I give you Glaurung! As you might know, Glaurung is a dragon, or fire-drake. He was the first of the dragons by Morgoth and also of high rank … Continue reading Tolkien Week: Day 5 – Glaurung
Fourth day of Tolkien Week! Are we already half way through? That's a bit sad to think about... Who's with me and celebrate Tolkien the whole year round? I realized just now when loading the next character drawing that I have managed to draw a different Middle-earth race each day! Today we're having a human. … Continue reading Tolkien Week: Day 4 – Tuor son of Huor
Okay, so, another day another illustration! So far I have actually done my part and completed a drawing each day, it is a habit I hope to continue! (To draw for 1-2 hours several days a week). Anyway, I thought that I wanted to give a try on a very well known character this time … Continue reading Tolkien week: Day 3 – Lúthien Tinúviel

(The characters, the quests, the themes, the worlds, etc.) What caught me the first readings is the … Continue reading Tolkien week: Day 3 – Middle-earth Questionaire
Today, the 22nd of september, is Hobbit day! A day to celebrate the birthday of Bilbo and Frodo! Perhaps you have made a celebration cake twice the size of your own body or will drink a few drinks under a party-tree? I wanted to use this day to illustrate another two characters that does not recieve … Continue reading Tolkien Week: Day 2 – Hobbit Day!
So, finally Tolkien Week is here! I've decided to post an illustration each day and I might do additional posts in order to celebrate Tolkien! If you have not yet noticed, I have new pages on this blog called J.R.R. Tolkien and Reading Tolkien. The first one is a brief presentation of our beloved writer … Continue reading Tolkien Week: Day 1 – The Blue Wizards
Favorite horse? Bill! Because I’m so glad he could come with the Hobbits and Strider from Bree and get better. If you could spend a day in Middle-earth, what would you want to do? I’d go join in listening to storytelling around a hearth where I could find it. Maybe in Meduseld or a camp … Continue reading Tolkien Questionaire (5/5)
Have you read the book? Yes, I don’t think I’d be able to answer some of the earlier questions if not! I think that I have read The Hobbit four times and The Lord of the Rings three times. I might have written about this in my “About the blogger” section? Have you ever had … Continue reading Tolkien Questionaire (4/5)
