I love this part in the book. not because of what happens but Tolkien's writing is amazing and this does it justice. I like the symbolization of the broken sword as well esp when that is usually reserved for Aragorn's line.

When I read the book I couldn't believe he died so early. I thought, "there's still hundreds of pages left!" :(

This is a really great capturing of that scene - dare I say, it shows the sadness and grief much better than both the books and the movie. Marvelous job

I love your portrayal of Boromir, because even though I liked the film's interpretation, it wasn't much like the book-description, and it's always nice to see a different incarnation of a character. I think you've done an excellent job of capturing the pain and grief of the moment, while keeping it in that slightly stylised world where it looks dramatic and noble instead of just gory. Boromir's face really is good; noble but with that slight harshness.
I really like the position of the Orcs too, just lurking off in the foreground so that they're there but not dominating and - holy blibble, that one's staring at me! Well, that's unsettling when you notice it. I'm not quite sure I believe the angle of Boromir's leg - it looks possible, but not comfortable. Then again, I suppose by this point he's not really up to arranging himself comfortably.
Many thanks for this excellent work!

That's okay! I suppose if you fell in an awkward position but were sufficiently dead you wouldn't bother to move.

Hurray! Fanart that doesn't look like the movies! I do love the movies, and Sean Bean is awesome, but it's been a shame seeing nothing but art inspired by the movies.

I actually got done writing my capstone paper about swords in LotR. The way you drew Boromir's sword nicely echoes the conclusion I drew in my paper.

I really like how you don't try and draw off of the movies. Instead you seem to draw the characters and scenes more from your mind with a possible influence of the old LOTR calenders.

I agree with Angaloth. I love how you drew them truer to the novels than to the films (although I <3 Daisy Wenham and Sean Bean). Aragorn's expression here kills me. :'(

I find it interesting that you drew the characters based on what you thought they were rather than using already made designs. They look different than preconceived notions of what they look like in the Jackson, Bakshi, and Rankin Bass versions.

Hey,

Wow! Though your picture is a great version of Boromir's death, it is not the scene itsself that I like most. It is your Aragorn that I find most intriguing! I so much love his sad/serious expression and his pronounced features. He is just wonderful - one of the greatest portraits of Aragorn I've ever seen! :nod:

CU & greetings
Miou Q. B-)

Ps.: Thanks a lot for the other wonderful pictures in your gallery. I also very much like your Witcher fanart! :-)
