I imagine Huan like a wolf-dog sometimes, but I go more often for a more "doggy" look. I think the Irish Wolfound perfectly fit Huan. What do you think ?

Nice drawing anyway. ;)

I imagined him like a wolf, but more doggish, if you take my meaning. But I imagined him as a wolf until I read the part where he fought Sauron. Then he looked more like a dog in my mind. I'm not sure why.

Well may be cause two wolfish characters will be difficult to differentiate from eachother ? And it'll be difficult to know which of them is the nice one... ;)

Mm...i chose a long time how Huan might look like.Tolkien writes that he was a hound. But it`s unclear whether this suit or appointment.I saw Irish wolfhounds too, but ... they seemed too daunting outwardly. At least for a good character. For example www.arahu-iw.com/images/storie… or
Actually Irish wolfhound looks more like Carcharoth. Don`t you think?)

Wow I really like the first image ! We probably have an imagination working differently ^^ Cause I always pictured Huan fighting Charcharoth like that (I even do a sketch that looks a lot like this picture... funny).

For me Huan is a hound and Charcharoth a wolf, that's clear. But he can be a type of hound looking a lot like a wolf (cause it's a looong time ago) or more like a dog (I like Irish Wolfhounds cause they are tall and are a really old race from the british islands which make them believable in ME).

I met an Irish Wolfhound once and for me it can really play the role of the faithful and nice Huan, wise in some occasions too. It's normal for him to look really fierce when it come to fighting. ;)

Hmm...I'll think about it. Maybe someday I will do another drawing to attend Huan.And he will be more like a dog.
Perhaps it was terribly meet that Irish wolfhound in reality?)I mean, it looks like these animals are truly enormous.

It was awesome. I don't like big dogs usually, they scare me, but this one looks really cool and wise, he was playing with the young children like an ol' granda'. :D But yeah it's a huge dog, I'm sure he was able to carry a child on his back (if it remembers you something) !

I like this whole picture, but especially how you did the texturing and coloring- it looks soft and very well-shaded.

I absolutely adore how you did Luthien, you portrayed her exactly as I always imagined her while reading the Silmarillion. And I really like the overall atmosphere of this pic. Wonderful work.

This is amazing! I especially love how you drew Luthien. She looks stunning, but a bit crafty at the same time, which suits her, I think. And her hairrrrr *_* For a moment I thought Huan was a cliff behind then... I didn't expect him to be that big xD But then again, he should be...

Mm..i don`t remember exactly,but Tolkien wrote that Huan was the size of a small horse.Besides he stands at the top of the hill so he seems higher and bigger than human figures.

Yeah, then your picture makes much more sense :D (seriously though... a small horse is really big. How can a dog be that big? xDDD Oh well. Can't fault the Professor :D)

Even in the our world once existed huge mammals (such as dinosaurs, flea the size of a dinner plate, spiders the size of a microwave etc.), not to mention the fantasy world :)

...That is a very good point. I'm rather scared by all these massive animals xD At least Huan is nice and cute. :D
