Lord of the Rings: CARTOON FELLOWSHIP by Jerome-K-Moore Lord of the Rings: CARTOON FELLOWSHIP by Jerome-K-Moore
Caricature/Cartoon, Fellowship of the Ring, LORD OF THE RINGS. Pencil, ink, prismacolor marker, gouache.

This is the colored and composed, finished rendering of something I did for a neighbor kid named Casey. He's a big-time fan of the films, but didn't have the special edition DVDs with the added scenes, and extras. So I bought him a set, and held onto it until I could surprise him with a little cartoon sketch as a bonus. Well, as usual, I went overboard, and what was originally intended to be a quick, simple sketch turned into a full-blown, gigantic illustration! LOL! Boromir, and Merry didn't make the cut, but I switched Pippin for Casey, turning the kid into a hobbit. Typically for his age, he actually loves the dark, bad-guy Orcs. But-- TOUGH toe-jam, kid! You're a furry-footed halfling, now... and you'll LIKE it! LOL!

It was an oversized illustration, and it was tough to get a scan done of it. Strangely, Kinko's produced a scan streaked with noisy color lines, which I removed in Photoshop. I was tempted to spiff it up with fancy digital cheats. But I decided to leave it the way I originally rendered it. The lighting effects for the crystal on Gandalf's staff, and the glow of Frodo's elf-sword, Sting, were achieved with old-fashioned dry-brush technique, toothbrush spatter, and stipple.

And yeah, I KNOW Gollum wasn't a member of the Fellowship, but I just wanted him in there. I had fun depicting his lust for the Ring despite Sting glowing inches away. And the "pull" of the Ring on Frodo is here illustrated literally, as well as Frodo's temptation to put it on.

This is awesome! I wish you had Merry and Pip made it in there, they're my favorite Hobbits, next to Frodo. Love it anyway. I like how you used the kid as a Hobbit. So sweet! He seems like a cool kid.

Why doesn't this have a Tumblr share icon, or any other share? I'd love to post this with proper attribution, but I'm too lazy to do all the copy/pasting.

Lembas…what’s Lembas precious? ;) Just kidding. I was thinking more like honey-cake, but we could always go with something less nutritious and softer than Lembas…like cookies, brownies, or pies. Lol! ;) :heart:

You make=I bake. That’s the deal. ;) lol.

Although I’ve never shipped a pie before so it will probably be chocolate chip cookies and brownies. :heart: Unless you happen to be in the Phoenix area. Then I’d bring you a pie of your choosing.

Or if you want the apple pie spice chocolate chip cookies (my husband’s favorite) or peanut butter cookies I can make those too. :D Hmmmm…maybe just a sample pack? It’s up to you. :D

I reckon my absolute favorite baked goods are:
- Brownies.
- Devil's Food cake with a thin layer of vanilla frosting (sprinkled with coconut shavings).
- Banana nut cake.
- Pumpkin pie.
- Oh! And something folks out here seem to know nothing about-- Gingerbread cake!

Mmmmm-MMMM!!! LOL!!!

Any one of those items are probably my only treat temptations. :)

(Warning-super long response. In my defense you did mention some really awesome deserts.) ;)

I love your treat temptations! :D Although I’ve never heard of Gingerbread cake. Now my family has an amazing gingerbread recipe so I’m looking for some good Gingerbread cake recipes…just to see what the differences are. Does it have frosting on top? Just curious. :)

I love to bake brownies. They are also easier to ship so that is nice. Now would you be more interested in fudge brownies, double chocolate chip brownies, or Reece’s brownies? The Reece’s brownies are my latest creation.

I could easily make you a Devil’s food cake with homemade vanilla frosting and coconut shavings on top. I’ve never heard of the coconut shavings on top. I like it. It’s an interesting twist. Oh and my mom (I mean mother-in-law) showed me her secret to making an awesome pumpkin pie and wow! It’s the best. I make a homemade crust of course. ;)

Ok…and I saved the best for last. I have an amazing banana bread recipe. I won’t tell you to what lengths I went to get this recipe, but nothing has been able to beat it. Anyway now when you say banana nut cake…is that like banana bread, but in a cake shape or is it a whole different recipe? It’s fine if you don’t know.

Uh…should I post all of this? ;P I do love talking about baking. :heart: I’m thinking the brownies if you want me to ship them to you, but if you come here for the Phoenix Comic Con or something I could bring you a cake or :pie: or both. lol. Don’t forget our deal. ;) You make=I bake. ;p Te he he! Actually, I’d probably make them for you anyway because you are cool and wrote me back. :D

:heart: Your pal, :kitty:
