    I finally got in my new LOTR: The Sword That Was Broken oil on canvas. It turned out wonderful, the detail is outstanding. :D I found some new things that I wanted to incorporate into the painting, so I went back to the drawing board and had a new 4'x'5 mural done up.

    Here is a pic of it:

    And a close up showing Narsil and Sauron:

    A shot of my LOTR figs that accent the painting. That polystone Sauron has got to be at least 40 lbs. :eek

    Also upgraded my ANH lineage 3p0 head with brass eyes and plated aluminum antenna:

    And I put up another glass shelf to hold the T2 arm and some sabers.

    Hope you like it.

    Awesome stuff. It's great seeing LOTR stuff - which reminds me; the LOTR exhibit is heading back to Te Papa in April for three months and then heading to one international location. Not sure where the latter is though.

    Cool stuff, dude.

    ARGH... your killing me. I love that painting. How about offering a copy of it for sale or a poster. My wife is a big LOTR fan would love to have this.

    Thanks all. Turo, you are welcome anytime my man. :)

    The changes I had made were more to Isildur and Narsil, and a small bit to Sauron after close inspection of the reference material I had. Plus some updates on the background colors and flag.

    You never know tek, I was hoping of making some canvas prints using my original mural. If I do I will post an interest thread...

    i always hate seeing your t2 arm displayed, i always think the shelves are gonna give in, it doesnt look safe but i'm sure you wouldnt put it up there if it wasnt.

    the painting is very impressive :thumbsup

    Thanks guys, I love the painting - it really makes my room. Without it the whole thing looks drab.

    zorg, I hear ya. I got the thick glass shelves from Home Depot. I dont think they would hold the Sauron statue, but if you screw into studs they will hold a T2 arm no problemo. :)

    And more and more people are looking for copies...

    Hyperdyne might make some if he sees a demand. At the very least we can let him know we want one.

    Good news.

    I put up an interest thread for canvas prints of my LOTR mural in the JY. If I can get enough people committed for a run it should be doable.

    That's awesome. Unfortunately I just can't afford the largest size, which is what I'd want. Would you consider sharing your reference photos or sources for those of us who may want to do or commission a painting ourselves? The movie itself, a DVD online easter egg and a movie book are the only references I know. In any case, to be super accurate, I think I want to paint it on a surface with a similar shape as the one in the movie. It would help if there were other references with more detail. Thanks.

    Also, rather than risk damage to a painting from what I assume is a roller type scanner, would you consider having a professional take a photo of your more detailed second version painting under a flat lighting rig? Might be more expensive but would protect your painting and allow you to photograph your nicer second version, which is the subject of this thread.

    Hyperdyne, am only seeing this now after all this time. That mural is amazing! I can't find that Interest thread in the JY though... must be cos it was so long ago. Whatever happened to it? If you ever do another run, I would like in!

    Great work. I've always wanted one of those

    Hyperdyne did a fantastic job on it.
    I was fortunate to add the smaller version he did.

    Thanks again Hyperdyne!
