Angbor. by Suzanne-Helmigh Angbor. by Suzanne-Helmigh
Done for Sophisticated games: Lord of the Rings card game.
Set to release in October 2012, all rights reserved. Do not copy or use this image.
While making this card game reference was used of myself, my friends, or from people online with permission.
Paint time: 4 hours.


For people who've only seen the Lord of the rings movies, here comes a bit of backstory:

"Angbor was met by Aragorn when he arrived from the Paths of the Dead. He was in battle with the Corsairs of Umbar, when the Army of the Dead gave their aid. Angbor was the only man who had courage enough to meet with Aragorn, who instructed him to gather his men and ride to the aid of Minas Tirith. It was later mentioned that he and his men arrived at Minas Tirith during the time Aragorn and company left for the Black Gate. It was Aragorn that named Angbor "the Fearless".

Don't forget to check my blog for sketches and more artwork :)

 I must say that this is the other image in your 'Tolkien' gallery that has impressed me the most Miss Helmigh; not only have you taken a fairly obscure character from the pages of 'Lord of the Rings' but you have given him a distinctive character all his own, a sort of 'Seen Worse, beaten Better' attitude that comes across strongly without being too overblown.

 I also rather like the air of rugged civility I sense in the character depicted; a man who lives rough life but is still able to practice common decencies.

You're doing such an awesome job bringing them to life with these paintings. C:
