[quote:3aaeizes]Wow, I commend you for your bravery! Depicting Mog-Pharau would be the last thing I would ever do. I remember trying to draw Sauron before the LoTR movies ever came out, not the easiest thing to do.

With LoTR (the book, this was way before the movie) my first try at artwork was an attempt to draw an Ent, mainly because after reading the trilogy several times I still didn't have a clear picture in my mind of what an Ent would look like. The results weren't pretty. In the end I concluded that it's extremely difficult to draw Ents that aren't "funny looking" in a negative way. The movie did a better job on Treebeard and Co. than I expected. Superkeer, that was pretty damn funny! :D I'm tempted to try and Photoshop into existence that image of McEnroe with the glowing eyes and mouth... view post
