Across the bridge the e l v e s thrust their prisoners, but Bilbo hesitated in the rear. He did not at all like the look of the cavern-mouth, and he only made up his mind not to desert his friends just in time to scuttle over at the heels of the last elves, before the great gates of the king c l o s e d b e h i n d t h e m w i t h a c l a n g .

"Many of these trees were my friends. Creatures I had known from nut and acorn. They had voices of their own. Saruman! A wizard should know better! There is no curse in Elvish, Entish or the tongues of men for this treachery. My business is with Isengard tonight. With rock and stone! Hoorarooom… Come my friends. The Ents are going to war. It is likely that we go to our doom. Last march of the Ents!”
“I don’t like to play a part that I have played before…Now here I am, back doing it specifically, that’s actually the same person. And it is a long commitment, and at my age I have to decide, ‘Do I really want to do this? Do I really want to go on this journey? Because if not, I can go on another journey.’ So there was a lot inside me saying, ‘No, no, no, what’s the point? I’ve done it. Am I going to enjoy it? Am I going to find anything new in it?’ And against that, what persuaded me was could I bear the thought of somebody else playing Gandalf? Because it’s easily done. You put anyone in the outfit and they look like Gandalf. Not that clever. And a friend who said, ‘Ian, just think of those fans,’ who I am always going on about. I meet these little people, these eight year olds who love Gandalf. They love him. Not me, him. And she said, ‘You have to do it for them, don’t you?’ And that cleared my mind totally, so yeah. I couldn’t actually face talking to an eight year old and explaining why I didn’t want to be Gandalf again. Because he wanted me to be." - Sir Ian McKellen (x)

People that make me question my real life relationships on a daily basis (1/2) - 19-year-old Elijah Wood on the set of LotR - PART 2
Part 1 is here.
Felt like drawing this which is about famous dragons that lived on Middle Earth. If people thought Smaug was huge, well he is basically an ant compared to Ancalagon. Granted, I am not so sure if I got the other dragon’s sizes and look correct, but I wanted to basically do my take on them.
"Yeah, I don’t know if it will be the battle scene to beat all battle scenes… I just think it will be the battle that was written in the book, and we will see it come to life which means that it’s a battle that’s about warring factions and friends turning into foes and then foes turning into friends, and it’s really about the characters and seeing through their emotional arcs and completing their stories, more than it’s about ‘how many orcs can we fit on a field’, ‘how many elves can we slay’; that’s not the game that Peter was playing when he created this battle." - Evangeline Lilly on The Battle of Five Armies

Just a moment… and I will be there to serve you shortly.
LMAO this was really just me wanting to draw him tying his hair. I was too lazy to draw a background, so think whatever you like on why he’s half (
or fully?)naked. I think I draw Thorin far too much. I really should draw the others too.
