The Lord of the Rings by omarito The Lord of the Rings by omarito
what if there were an animated series or a movie? well, these are my personal (cartoonish) takes from some of the characters.

the designs are based half from the movies and half the description provided in the books, plus a bit of my own.

actually there are existing adaptions on the LOTR and Hobbit in animated movies and they are far older than the new ones and also kind of popular in their time i think. i just can't take them very serious after having watched the newer ones and i think your designs are fresher (more of the modern style, even if the old fashioned one has its charme, too) 
here some links, so you get an idea of the old movies ;)

Yes! you should get the job, if it ever happens, only thing i could change is making Legolas a bit more muscular, i understand that elves are meant to be lightfooted, he needs to look like a warrior, not a criticism, just an observation, the artwork is perfect, would love to see this for real someday

Gimli and Boromir are probably the most different looking from the movie adaptation.

omarito Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2015  Professional General Artist
yeah, actually Boromir is the one that is actually all different from the version of the movie, because I tried to keep in mind what's his description in the book (less the fur cape) and the short hair was to keep him away from Aragorn's design :)

You did an outstanding job on the designs; they are fresh, yet evoke some of the best elements from the films. I noticed many great nods to the character descriptions from the books as well, particularly your interpretation of Boromir and Gimli. Fantastic! I am always reading LOTR, and I love seeing artwork like this. Your designs would be perfect for a LOTR animated series. I wish you the best of luck!

These designs are terrific, love how stringy the elves looks, how beefy Gimli and the Orc are, and how friggin' adorable Frodo is. If this were an animated series, I'd totally watch it. Heck, I'd wanna animate for it.
