I’m approximately half way through these paintings, so I’m making a temp master post for them. RL;TB: Boromir, Éowyn, Galadriel, Legolas, Merry/Pippin, Frodo/Sam.

Have you figured out my color combinations and all the symbols/objects yet? There are some book things thrown in here too.

Fun facts:
Boromir is always modeled off of St. Sebastian. The antlers in Éowyn’s are for Gil-galad’s prophecy. Galadriel sits opposed to Arwen as “the rising sun”. Legolas represents spring or the “new”, while Thranduil represents fall and the diminishing past. Merry and Pippin’s entire image is related to people other than themselves. Sam is the only character that is not object related, as his most important thing is Frodo.
