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

"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.

Excellent work. Both Frodo and Sam were brave and loyal hobbits. Long live Lord Of The Rings.

This scene in the first movie was so intense. I love Frodo and Sam with all my heart. I love how strong their friendship is and how Sam stands by Frodo no matter what, even though the ring wasn't even his burden to bare at first. Hobbits are my favorite. :)

It is that simple. That is why I love Sam Gangee. He was and always be,a friend. He gave everything he had inside him, for his friend. Thank you for my most favorite piece of art in all of DA.
