Guys, DeviantArt has finally updated user galleries so we can adjust their organization to our own liking. So for instance I can create a folder/profile TLD which will contain only TLD pictures. And subfolders for all the factions/armor/weapons and shit...
So it'll be organized and easier to search in. ;)
Here's my gallery: http://merlkir.deviantart.com/

I'm now painting and drawing commissions. I'll paint portraits, pets, girlfriends, favourite characters..you name it. Send me a PM if interested ;)

Really? Are you aware if it's available for everyone or only the subscribed accounts?

I think it's quite clear that they weren't fantasy like "troll-men", but ordinary large black men, unfamiliar to the people of Gondor who encountered them:


Yeah, you probably mean like one of these two weirdos:


However I never understood them as large african black men, but as man-like trolls with black (more like orcish) skin.
Instead of the usual fat clumsy troll, I'd imagine these tall and lean, with very dark grey skin.


Maybe if we come up with a concept derived from such ideas:

well, I always thought they were just really big african zulu looking dudes. But if we agree on something more real-half-trollish, I won't mind really. LOTR:TW has them like that, they use scythes! :D O_O


here's how they looked in the movies. O_O it's actually quite cool. imo.

Well, I always thought it was just a figure of speech. Maybe even a little racist..heh. But a figure of speech.  I'd prefer Far Harad as simply black skinned men.  Its not really a big deal though, we can cross that road when we get to it.

No, I really, really doubt they were actual half-trolls. Tolkien explicitly states that they were black men like half-trolls. An exceptionally tall tribe, like the Tutsis, but much broader built, would fit the bill here, with small pupils and very red tongues added.

Yeah, they would probably be just big and ugly black men.

He might have meant troll-like in how they act and live, rather than looks. Half-troll might suggest this, since it would be hard for any kind of man to live like a troll, Im assuming.

Personalized I think I read.  That picture is from the main screenshots thread over at taleworlds. 

Although it looks cool wouldn't you always shoot your "horse" when you try to shot left or backwards.  Would be better if it was the left arm that the character sits on.
