Strider by peet Strider by peet
'Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits.'


JRR Tolkien: The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring: Book I, Chapter 9: At the Sign of The Prancing Pony

Glad you like again, even if it's not your personal interpretation. I'm always grateful for that.

Strider! Very well done. He looks intense and weatherbeaten- but tough.

I'm happy you approve -- you don't know how much heat I get from people for making him look either unlike Viggo Mortenson, or for making him look too old.

Yes, so what? This is how I picture him -- as old. He is nearly 90 in 'LotR', and although I don't envisage him to look that old, I really think he would show some signs because of the harsh, out-doors nature of his life. He is weatherbeaten and haggard, and the hardiest of all Men of that Age.

Nice work Only, the belt, in some bizarre way, resembles male genitalia and the way it's hanging... also he looks like he hunched forward, in which case it would be painful to keep your legs lika that.
