LOTR FOTR Samurai Version by kaz320 LOTR FOTR Samurai Version by kaz320
Geez, it took me days and weeks to finish this! I'm sorry that I couldn't include Sam and Gimli in this pic... due to the composition matter, 7 people were at most I could draw in one piece.

Star-Bunny Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2006
I'll start off on all of the positives, I gotta say that I love the way you do your eyes, specially on those cute little hobbit buddies. You have proven that Legolas can and will look good in anything pretty much, he;d of made an awesome samurai. The coloring is well done and appropriate, as well the patterns on the clothes are well chosen. I can definetly see that you took time to draw and color this. My major complaint is that some of the body positions don't look natural, alittle stiff if you would. Aragorn's right arm looks alittle off, the part where the flesh starts showing through looks alittle tacked on, perhaps this could be fixed through different positioning. Another thing you might want to look into is that I found Aragorn and Boromir/Feremere (can't tell which it is), foreheads extend alittle too high and their hairstyles I found made it alittle hard for me to recognize who they were at first. Other then those things, I loved it, cute idea and well drawn. Stars and Rainbows to you!

That's a neat idea, actually!
Great pic!
ZpanSven Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2005  Student General Artist
That's an amazing concept! :D Love the coloring too btw. +fav
Kakaro Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2005
Wow great ^^ I like the Legolas, although he looks like he's going to do Seppuku now O_o nooo! Not Legolas!
I wonder, what would Gandalf do with a katana... *imagines him wielding it, sweatdrop* never mind...
soulshards-stock Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2004
i absolutely love the Samurai Galdalf. i think it fits his personality (especially in the books) better than the British White guy does, though i had never thought about it. great work.
effiedraws Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2004  Hobbyist General Artist
Wow, awesome work! :glomp: ^^ (I fave it!)
MirkwoodNoHime Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2004
Wow!! That is an awesome idea, and you are an incredibly talented artist. I hope I can CG like you someday! ^^ Agh that concept works so well.. surprisingly.. one would think that any LOTR/samurai crossover would be a joke, but this practically looks like it could be a movie poster!

Ahhh.... No Sam or Gimli???

So whos who??
I recogize Legolas and Gandalf.
I don't know the girl and guy in the left hand corner.
Under them's gotta be Arwen.... and I think Boromier under her and Aragorn to the right or Boromier???

And I can't spell some of the characters correctly yet.... :P

Nice work and interesting concept!

It be funn to see Gimli as a Samurai!!

LOL XD excellent!! what? no gimli?? *giggles at thought of samurai gimli* :giggle:
liliy Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2003  Hobbyist Digital Artist
:w00t: boromir made it in. XD bwa ha ah ha ha ha. *cough* sorry... >.> it's just that most people would have ditched boromir over sam or gimli... *happy*

nice job. ^_^ and creative parody, samurai...never would have saw that coming. ^^

Killer CG work like always. ^_^
tokyorose Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2003
First off, I'd like to be yet another person who says... Samurai rock! XD

That said, you pulled this off quite nicely. Scratch that, incredibly nicely. The poses are realistic; the shading's excellent; the colors are pleasant to the eyes... That's it. I'm putting this on my favorites list! :D
BBMacToma Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2003  Hobbyist General Artist
Ooooh. Teach me how to color like you do. It's so neato. What DPI do you scan? what tools do you use? i need to know everything! Your coloring is so beautiful!!!
nyu Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2003  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Who thought they would fit this well? O__o
So much to comment on...not to mention the colourings and how they were's not an easy job to have many people in one paper...O__o;;;;
Like Gandalf's colouring...his beard and hair expecially...@___@
Hmm...*imagines LOTR in samurai version* -.-
mementomoryo Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2003  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Bloody blazes! This is one helluva good fanart, and it's an original take on it, too! LOTR a la Kurosawa... they could call it "The 9 Samurai" or something cheezy like that. ^_^ Boromir looks really good in that outfit, lemme tell ya. Great job!
naoko Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2003
This is hillarious! I LOVE IT! +fav.. frodo looks so cute still, and look at legolas! XD ; *dies*

INCREDIBLE!!! The first thing I thought when I saw this picture was: BOY! Look at that DETAIL!!!! I looove all the detail and all the intricacy screaming out through this picture, especially in all that lovely texture ^_^. Captivating indeed! The shirt patterns are definitely the most awesome thing yet. I have no idea how you got them to look so shaded, but AWESOME, you have a very refined and learned skill that advocates its own sense of style. The eyes are so well done, and the way you make such smooth gradients. AWESOME work, as always :D (Big Grin)

Peace. Love. Anime.
