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

"Don't you leave him! They said to me. Leave him! I said. I never mean to. I am going with him, if he climbs to the Moon, and if any of those Black Riders try to stop him, they'll have Sam Gamgee to reckon with, I said. They laughed."


Frodo (Elijah Wood) and Sam (Sean Astin)

For many, “The Lord of the Rings” means a fantasy book with its clichés. A story full of fantastic characters, about honor, loyalty, ambitions, sacrifices, power, great deeds taken by great men. But… there is another thing that has nothing to do with pure fantasy or magic.
There are two small creatures. They are not nor great warriors nor super powered. They are just two hobbits. Although, they carry inside of them the most extraordinary quality that anyone could bear; and it’s not necessary that you make part of those fairy tales or any other fiction, or being someone “special”. Just because it is something so ordinary for us, in real life, that most of times we don’t pay such an attention…
This drawing is about friendship.


It is dedicated to Raquel. She is nothing but a friend, which means everything.

Stunning. Pure emotion, striking attention to detail, uncanny likeness, and the essence of my two favourite literature characters in the world summed up so well. Viva friendship! :love: Your talent is awe inspiring -- truly breath taking!

sorry but is that a drawing or an actual picture? I'm having a hard time telling the difference here. That's impressive.
