The Barrow Wights, page 11 by rain-and-sunshine The Barrow Wights, page 11 by rain-and-sunshine

this was created as an creative project assignment in a Literature of Fantasy course, and is based on Chapter 8 of The Fellowship of the Ring.

I wanted to try visualizing a scene that was not in the films. The Barrow Downs was always one of the places that I was sad did not make it into the Peter Jackson movie adaptation (although I understand why it was cut).

And, as much as I love the Peter Jackson FotR, one qualm I had was how much Frodo's role was cut down. We don't get to see him fight off the barrow wight, or stab the witch king, or face down the black riders at the Ford! So I wanted to show some of that aspect of the character a bit more here.

my design for Frodo is vaguely based off of Elijah Wood's Frodo I suppose, but not entirely. the one thing I consciously kept the same was the eyebrows.

I hope you enjoy!
