LOTR - Char Redesigns by Changinghand LOTR - Char Redesigns by Changinghand
Alright, some more practice here. These two are the first in a number of studies I’ll be doing. I’ll be redesigning a handful of characters where the race of each person is changed. Important as an exercise in drawing diversity, and the fact that POC representation in fantasy is mostly non-existant.

See, my only problem with this is that now there's the whole "Black guy dies first" thing going on for Boromir.

This is gorgeous, and I've pretty much fallen in love. I checked around and I suppose you haven't done others (?) but you've inspired me to draw some of my own redesigns <3

WOOOOOOOOOOOW this is so amzing

i mean, eomer has a sort of mongolian look because mongolians were fierce horsemen jut like the rohan and that's not only amazing, it has historical background man I fucking love racebending of Tolkien's works because it adds WHOLE NEW LEVELS to the story that weren't there before because of the whole "written by an old Victorian Christian white guy" thing

in resume, please keep being a badass
