My Precioussss by JakeMurray My Precioussss by JakeMurray
Gollum has always been an absolute favorite character of mine, so when I was assigned this card from Fantasy Flight Games for their Lord of the Rings card game, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to paint up the portrait of him that I had always imagined from reading the hobbit. This was definitely one of my favorite pieces to come from 2013!

I'm also pleased to say that open edition giclée prints are available via my INPRNT store! INPRNT produces absolutely BEAUTIFUL gallery-quality prints (all of my previous prints were created by them, so I can vouch for the quality), so check them out!

PRINTS AVAILABLE HERE!

He's so creepy... You really got the scene right I think!:clap: I've never tried drawing or painting this because I haven't come up with a good excuse or explanation as to why you should even be able to see anything apart from his glowy eyes. At least in the book Tolkien writes that it's so dark Bilbo couldn't even see his own hand...

Yeah I actually used to struggle a lot with scenes that were supposed to be very dark. You have to sort of learn how to imply a sense of darkness without actually being really literal, otherwise you'd lose your image to just a lot of blackness.

man, i should have looked at the rest of your gallery a while back! all of your images are three dimensional and not just flat pieces. i still love the image where the peasant fellow is protecting his family. keep at it man!
