The Fellowship of the Ring by tenpoundpixel The Fellowship of the Ring by tenpoundpixel
Done for the Movie themed contest for #PixcellentArtists

The scene where the Fellowship of the Ring from Lord of the Rings is formed. Featuring Hugo Weaving as Elrond, Viggo Mortensen as Aragorn, Ian McKellen as Gandalf the Grey, Orlando Bloom as the fabulous Legolas, the always dying Sean Bean as Boromir, amazing John Rhys Davies as Gimli, Billy Boyd as Pippin, Dominic Monaghan as Merry, Elijah Wood as Frodo and Sean Astin as Samwise

I would have loved to insert Andy Serkis aka Gollum into the scene but I had to maintain a semblance of accuracy.

Added in some minimal animation for some extra oomph (16 frames at 0.08 delay) and exported at 256 colors. Would have wanted to make their blinking more separate from eachother but I didn't want to add any more frames so group blinking it is.

Nine Companions. So be it. You shall be the Fellowship of the Ring

The Fellowship of the Ring by ~mr-winters Don't let the preview fool you; this pixel piece has a ton of detail. The stylization of this scene is amazing and humorous. Also suggested by =r0se-designs. ( Suggested by ValaSedai and Featured by Lyricanna )

This is cool, but its kinda funny to see them all blink at the same time. I read your comment. You might have been able to make a few of them blink when the light wasn't shining.

So.....I like everything besides the fact they all blink at the same time. That's really unnerving. If you had staggered it between frames or maybe had only a few of them blink that would have made it feel a lot more natural.

I had to stop looking at it because it was getting creepy.

Otherwise I think the pixel work is fantastic. Very vibrant and detailed. It's cool how you captured all the characters well so that even in such chibi form I can still tell who is who.

The group blinking is kind of creepy, but I think sequential blinking would be just as freaky.
Great job over all though, and congrats on the DD!

Generally, this is very nice, but I will provide some additional comments should you wish to modify any part of your work. The timing of the blinking is rather inconsequential, in my opinion; what should be added, however, is a change of lighting upon the faces of those present.

The glow cast over the ring clearly generates a large amount of light, which is why the shadows on the pillars stretch into so bold a view, but it's the very fact that you accentuate this light so much that makes the unwavering shading of each character's face stand out.

It would probably be a lot more work, though, and so I would understand if you just dust your hands of the task at this point. A good job overall. ^^

I absolutely love this. It kind of looks like Elrond is the host of a TV shopping network :lol:

I do agree that switching up the timing a bit would improve it, but it's simply epic either way.

I'll be honest... I was totally expecting a 16-bit style Sonic the Hedgehog to run into the scene after a few moments, jump up, grab the ring, and then run off as the Fellowship stood shocked in horror.
