So I don’t know how many of you have seen the appendices for the Hobbit: AUJ extended edition, but as I was watching them the other day this little bit came on with Cate Blanchett explaining that she had to wear platform wedges in order to move around with the dress on and look tall. She had a pair of nude ones for regular use and then she picked her dress up and showed the camera that she had a pair specifically for the dress as she wore in onscreen - white with silver sequin designs all over them. I cracked up laughing and was immediately determined to draw her in them! So these are, to the best of my memory, what they looked like. (Someone needs to find me a gif of that, pronto.)
This was an exercise in perspective, quick scribbles, crack, and sparkles.
I’ve wanted to draw Pengolodh for a really long time, but especially since I wrote him recently. I still don’t have a concrete idea of his appearance though, so I decided to do this instead. It’s really loose and quick, but it serves nicely as a concept.
