Frodo Baggins by LittleTurtleDuck Frodo Baggins by LittleTurtleDuck
Digital painting of Frodo Baggins.

I might redo this one later, Iím unhappy with his mouth.

I couldnít find a good reference photo of him smiling, but what I really wanted to do was a portrait of a young, happy Frodo, the way he should have been able to stay.

Beautiful portrait! I think that Elijah has big beautiful eyes and is a shame not paint them, maybe this is pushing many to painting portraits of Frodo or Elijah. Compliments!

He looks great!! :squee: I think the mouth is perfect, looks like he's quietly enjoying something (like Sam talking to Rosie). Though, if you do want to change the mouth, may I suggest something along the lines of mischievous? Frodo was a little rascal in his early days (he literally was a Huckleberry Finn :XD:)

Also, has anyone noticed how much he looks like Michael Landon? I swear I've seen so many pictures of Frodo/Elijah that remind me of Michael.

(For those who don't know who Michael was, he's best known for the roles of Little Joe in Bonanza and Charles Ingalls in Little House on the Prairie. Here's a couple of links to show you what he looked like. Little Joe Cartwright
Michael Landon They do look alike, don't they?).

Great painting!
You should keep the mouth part!!
It's like a Mona Lisa version of Frodo, if u cover the edge of his mouth the smile is gone.
Plus a faint smile is much more likely for him (for the greater part of the story) than an all-out smile ;)

How long does it take on average to do all the portraits?
You've been doing so many of them recently, it's really impressive!

It really depends on the photo and how much work it needs first. I can do a basic one in a little over an hour, probably. Ones like the one of Gimli and those that have a lot of hair work take much longer c:
