The cast of Peter Jackson’s Oscar-winning rendition of Lord of the Rings is now a collection of cartoon character illustrations thanks to Francisco Guerrero. He’s drawn the likes of Frodo, Samwise, Saruman, Gandalf, Gimli and more as western-style caricatures for a series that’s geeky, cute and badass all wrapped in one. Those familiar with the films will appreciate how closely Guerrero captures each character’s likeness while still maintaining the animated aesthetic that he was going for.
Also notable about Francisco Guerrero’s series is the template he used. Guerrero places every astoundingly drawn character in front of the legendary ring from the Tolkien series, complete with elven inscriptions. He then denotes each fantasy character with regal text and completes his compositions with epic referential backdrops.
