My submissioin to Jazza's 2017 march CotM.

Dring my brainstorm process I discovered that Tolkien's Epic and Rowling's Fairy tale universes dont really seem to blend easily in a way that would not seem goofy and silly.
Maybe that was exactly Jazza's intention when he decided on a theme (the man does indulge in kooky hijinks on a regular basis for our amusement after all). Me personally - I find no enjoyment in drawing nonsensical things, so Instead of doodling up somekind of wacky mashup poster I decided to try and invent a plot that would somewhat make sense (at least it did in my head).
What I mean by that is that Voldemort would totally let himself get corrupted by the power of the One Ring and become a shining vessel of malice and destruction if he and his army of underlings were to apparate into Middlearth somehow.

I feel like there's something uncanny about the foreshortened hand. Thinking that I fumbled the gesture of it a bit (or a lot, lel)
I'm not that proficient with anatomy yet :s

I love his expression, so suave and nonchalant. hahaha


Why doesn't Voldemort disappear when he wears the ring?

MycosynthWellspring responds:

Well, I was kind of led to believe that the Ring actually tailors it's power to match a particular wearer - Sauron never disappeared when he wore it either. The invisibility thing felt incidential to me (only hobbit-like creatures were portrayed wearing the Ring in the books as far as I can remember) - like the ring would augment the smaller creature's strength by turning it completely invisible, or make a powerful eldar mage even more spooky and fearsome. Like the promise of power and the corruption that it brings and not the actual powerup was what felt important.

Cheers m8.

Wow Scary! I wouldn't live in that world :D

Instead of a dark lord you shall have a... dark lord?

MycosynthWellspring responds:

Yeah, something along those lines :p
