DRAGON*CON SKETCH: ELROND
Today’s Dragon*Con sketch has a fun story. The commissioner wanted a sketch from Lord of the Rings, but was very specific to say “Not from the movies.”  Now this sort of commission excites and terrifies me. It’s a character from a novel that had no illustrations. So that means I get to let my imagination run wild…. except I have to restrict it to the descriptions given in the book. Only I haven’t read the book in a decade, so the difference between the books and movies were muddled in my head. I was scared I was going to mess this up.
Thankfully the commissioner loved the sketch, so it all worked out in the end!
If you like my sketches I have a giant book of them for sale. Over 200 sketches. Here are more details: BUY SKETCHBOOK
