Side By Side With a Friend. by Ryuutsu Side By Side With a Friend. by Ryuutsu
Gimli: "Never thought I'd die fighting side by side with an elf."
Legolas: "What about side by side with a friend?"
Gimli: "Aye... I could do that."


Rewatched all of LOTR recently, and have been working on this for a while now (mainly just because my attention span is pretty much non-existent lately). I seriously love the relationship these two share, especially after watching The Hobbit and learning all about the Elves vs. Dwarves hostility (I mean, I've read the book before, but it was ages ago, and I forgot most of it derp) that these two somehow manage to overcome and even form a friendship despite all that.

Plus, they're both incredible badasses. :D

There are two ways to interpret this drawing really (one happy and one sad, I suppose) but I'll just let you interpret it on your own.

Comments much appreciated! ^^ :heart:

What can possibly be sad about something so beautiful... I'm in love with this picture! The little "brofist-ish" thing that Legolas does is so adorable! ^_^

Let's just say it has a hidden meaning for the artist (the surroundings, after all, seem a tad ethereal for your classic Middle Earth) :D
Thank you so much! :heart: ;)

awwwwwwwwwwww~ Dis is so cute! X3

I watched the movies, I haven't Tackled the Books yet, but I Really want to, just have to find the dang things are. >_>
the ending really miffed me, I was like: "WTF happens to everyone else?", apparently they were going to have what happens to the rest of the fellowship in the movie but they cut it out for time reasons or something, and that ticked me off, so I looked it up and found out that after a while Legolas follows the rest of his kind and goes west to that evergreen-land-place-thing-whos-name-escapes-me and he Asks Gimli and Gimli's son to come with him and they say yes. and then I was Like:" DAWWWWWW! X3 -explodes from happiness-"

ADORABLE! I love the detail in the armor and the hair - how Legolas' brade is perfect and how Gimli's is all messy.
