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.
Set maybe a few Seasons for this then this and that and Possibly fill in some cracks with what happens with thorin's dad and do a backstory for golem but more in depth to show how he became who he was under the rings influence or do a few episode of gandalf explaining the huge war we got only a small glimpse at when the first movie came out. Possibly even some of the witch kings background more including a bit of sauron if a little letting.
