I LOVE the background here especially, and how nice to see something LotRish! And Sam, oh, how I adore Samwise. I like how the Shire is behind him, there, since Sam is Frodo's relinder of the Shire and of past happiness on the journey... Yep, illustrative it is. A
I know mentioning this makes me kind of petty, but isn't all unofficial art based on someone else's work fanart? That's how I've always looked at it, though of course if it illustrates something that happened in canon it is illustrative fanart then, unlike non-canonical or derivative art.
ah, well yes of course it's fanart, but it was kind of a tone i was going for. most of the time when i do fanart i don't make the effort to form a 'complete' picture. so to speak. i wanted to make the distinction that i was trying to flesh out this idea i had in my mind rather than just throwing some characters on paper like i usually do.
if any of that makes sense. i hope? ah, in any case i'm really pleased you liked the picture and thanks for your thoughts!
Yikes, that means that I will NOT be comin' to a Y!Gallery near you. Haha. By the way, didn't know why my phone didn't go off when you called, sorry about that, not sure if my reply went through but I work till 9 tonight.
WELL WELL WELL. if you come over i'll just give ya the original. that way in future years after my brilliant and violent death by zeppelin crash (it will guarantee a lot of media coverage) the value of said drawing will go up like 20 fold and you can hock it on eBay or somefing.
(AN I'M SORRY I AIN'T CALLED YET, have been v. busy and i plan to give ya ring tommorrow. of course, if i call and you haven't seen this yet, reading it later will all seem very silly.)
(LOL the Silent Hill theme just came on, thought you'd like to know i'm ending this comment on STRUMMING MANDOLINS.)
Good gracious me, where have you been hiding a zeppelin for all these years?! And besides, I'd never hock an original on ebay (id keep it and have people pay admission to see it lol win-win situation, that)
No worries about phoning, ive been busy too with all manner of dentists and other unpleasantness...if nothing else I'll end up giving ya a ring at a more reasonable hour of today
I HAS YET TO RECEIVE IT. which bothers me, cause i ordered some shirts as well and i think they messed up my order AGAIN. (last time i tried to order a shirt, they never shipped it and claimed it was a glitch in their computers.) but since this seems to be happening again i am getting rather annoyed. when you ordered it, did they ship it to you, or did you just give my address as where to ship? i'd like to know if it's just ME that this seems to be happening to. :\
HrrmmmMMMM. I had it shipped directly to you, like .. a LONG TIME AGO WTF. Arugh! I had a little gift note for it attached n stuff. Its been so long Ive actually forgotton which one I sent you O_O. Crapcakes. Ill have to look into it tomarrah.
mm, yea. i'm sending another email to them. ugh. cause they've charged my card again. did you ever get a shipping confirmation or anything? cause the first time (and now again) i never received one. ticks me off aplenty.
yea, that's what mine said the first time and they told me it was a glitch or some crap. i sent them an email, depending on what they say i'll bring this up. but since it's technically not my order you might want to do the same cause who knows. maybe they did ship. :\
