House of Fëanor

Two arty stuffs

We were doing 'crowd scenes' and the tutor suggested I try a battle scene.  By coincidence, I'd just drawn a battle scene with pen and ink so I decided to try re-drawing it with the support of Colin the Art, changing the things he suggested.  As usual it has photographed badly - contrast around the edges has been lost - but  I'm still pretty pleased with it. It's a battle of Elves, Dwarves and orcs.  The orcs are losing.  Hurray!   I'm particularly pleased with Colin's suggestion that I add an elf-archer on foot bottom right, so that the Dwarves become clearly short people (on goats) rather than simply breaking the perspective.

And the rescue that I adopted Rosie from has a christmas card competition, so I decided to make a very unseasonally festive image for that.  I don't know if it will be lurchery enough for them, but I tried!
