-------------------

"And seated a little apart was a tall man with a fair and noble face, dark-haired and grey-eyed, proud and stern of glance."


Boromir (Sean Bean) from The Lord of the Rings movie. :heart:


I started this drawing two years ago and thought that I would not finish it before the end of this era, but here comes the proud man. The waiting was worth since I think it is one of my best drawings so far. And I am surprised that it wasn't a hard work to make, while to darken the background wasted some hours. The progress went well, specially his face and beard. I didn't like the lower part of his hair close to the shoulders, but I don't know why I have a sense sometimes telling me "stop drawing, or you will do it forever and never get this done." I hate my perfectionism!
It's good to draw LotR fanarts, I go back to many years before, when everything was new and exciting. *sighs*
But it's giving me a lot of confidence and courage to keep my promises alive. Yes, I do promises for myself, and I am a very stubborn girl, I don't break them! Sometimes I feel like Boromir, a bit corrupted by my pride and confident to ignore a kind of neediness. Too much blahblahblah...

Now the most important thing about the drawing:
This is a special gift to my friend Silvia :iconspy3:
I am sorry for my unbelievable delay, but certain things come at the right hour. Thanks for being an amazing person and friend. I'm sure you'll get everything you want for life. I wish you this from the bottom of my heart, you know it. :thanks:

Pencil drawing on A4 paper.
I don't know how many hours I spent on this. Sorry.

This is truly beautiful.

You captured the likeness of Sean Bean's sternly determined Bormir, hands down.

And I love the all the gorgeous contrasts and textures you've drawn in this eye catching piece.

I love realistic artwork. You pencil skills are awesome. Therefore, I had to add Aragon and Boromir to my favorites collection, for further study. Your stubborness and perfectionism is paying off. Keep up the good work. Thanks for sharing your art with us. :icon1stbutterflykiss:

... I actually had to force myself to find one bit of this that didn't look exactly like a photograph close-up.
And it still took me ten minutes.

This is astonishing. It's clear you spent a lot of time and love on this!

That voice that tells you to Stop is a good one. Sometimes the temptation to keep going is strong, and sometimes it is not a good idea. :)
