About this creation
Gollum's Riddle
4. Alive without breath, as cold as death; never thirsty, ever drinking, all in mail never clinking.
(Answer: Fish)

This is my entry for the MELO round 1. I thought I'd enter the competition this year as I've been toying with the idea of some LOTR illustrations, specifically in a wood cut style. I'm riffing off the books as I imagined them, and not the superb films.

Here is the link to the competition as requested.

I think this is by far the best of your paper cutting MOCs. Great work.

It's the way you represent the fish that wins it for me. Best of luck!

One of my favorites from you David! Negative space for the win! Utterly brilliant in composition, the black frame sets off everything perfectly. Very cave-like and mysterious. Definitely foreboding. Very Dore-esque with a healthy dose of German expressionism. Beyond excellent!
