Yes exactly. I'm trying to stay away from anything seen in the films... as those versions are somewhat definitive, and re-creating someone else's work is just boring. I think i'll draw some Black Numenoreans next.
I agree with that, there is not much place for fantasy there, but there is so much in the books that it is no problem. Ooh, and Black Numenoreans! Looking forward to it! Once you could draw Habbanan, from this poem [link]
