March of the Ents

Postby Bruce N H » Thu Feb 07, 2013 6:01 pm

Hey all,

Here is my Round 3 entry to the MELO. The category is 'March of the Ents'.


A mob of angry ents wrote:To Isengard! Though Isengard be ringed and barred with doors of stone;
Though Isengard be stong and hard, as cold as stone and bare as bone,
We go, we go, we go to war, to hew the stone and break the door;
For bole and bough are burning now, the furnace roars - we go to war!

Your Orthanc looks so epic in the backgound! The mountain ridge is also very nicely done and I envy your collection of classic trees. :)

Best of luck in this category, Bruce.

Great forced perspective, the micro orthanc is incredible.
I like how dense the forest is as well, good luck :)

The micro Orthanc is quite impressive.

The FP is nicely done. The quote from the ents is cool too.

The classic trees are the perfect scale to make the ent look like he's walking through a forest of trees around his size. Great work!

I really admire the forced perspective here. Also, your creation definitely gave me a flash back to the first time I read that scene as a kid. Good luck with this entry.

I love how Orthanc is nestled in the mountains off in the distance there. It looks great. :)
