The Death of Boromir by peet The Death of Boromir by peet
'A mile, maybe, from Parth Galen in a little glade not far from the lake he found Boromir. He was sitting with his back to a great tree, as if he was resting. But Aragorn saw that he was pierced with many black-feathered arrows; his sword was still in his hand, but it was broken near the hilts; his horn cloven in two was at his side.'

JRR Tolkien: The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers: Book III, Chapter 1: The Departure of Boromir

It's a nice picture, but they look like they're just sitting there having a casual conversation and Boromir has these arrows sticking in him. He doesn't seem to be in pain, and Aragorn doesn't seem concerned at all.

So wonderful! ( but depressing) Their cloaks are magnificent!

I love the way Aragorn is sitting !

This is an excellent piece. It's very beautiful. My only problem with it is that Aragorn doesn't look concerned enough, and Boromir doesn't really seem that unhealthy looking, aside from the arrows of course.

Expressions aside, I'd almost call this masterful.

The emotion of this picture is astounding. The coloring is beautiful. The poses are great. I also like how you haven't been bound to the way the movies portray Aragorn and Boromir, and you've drawn how you imagined them from the book.

I love the surrounding forest and the trees.

This is my favorite drawing of this scene. I love the expressions, Boromir's pain and Aragorn's compassion. A masterpiece indeed

Aw, poor Boromir. I love how you captured the detail on the tree bark, it looks amazing. The backgrounds gorgeous too. The elven cloaks look wonderfully fluid as well, but my favourite part of this picture has got to be Aragorn's face. I like how he looks older and nobler, more fitting to a King of Gondor than movie-Aragorn, and I like the way you captured his expression. Wonderful. :)
