Boromir at the Council of Elrond
“Seated a little apart was a tall man with a fair and noble face, dark-haired and grey-eyed, proud and stern of glance.
He was cloaked and booted as if for a journey on horseback; and indeed though his garments were rich, and his cloak was lined with fur, they were stained with long travel. He had a collar of silver in which a single white stone was set; his locks were shorn about his shoulders. On a baldric he wore a great horn tipped with silver that now was laid upon his knees.”
-- J. R. R. Tolkien: The Lord of the Rings, Book 2
Boromir son of Denethor II was a proud man and a great warrior, who fought to save Gondor from the attacks of Mordor. He came to Rivendell to seek answers to a strange prophecy that he and his brother were given in a dream, hoping this would help him in his task..
So.. it's a straightforward portrait: my take at Boromir at the Council of Elrond. It's an older piece I drew in November but hadn’t submitted for some reason.. I have already drawn that sketch of Legolas at Rivendell
(that one could definitely use some more work), another of Aragorn is in the works and perhaps I might end up drawing the whole Fellowship at some point, who knows..
Drawn with HB and 5B pencil, the paper effect and some changes added in Photoshop. Cheers to =elegaer
for the heraldic design of Elrond on the chair - I shamelessly ripped her off!
There's a coloured version here
