Grima Wormtongue by SlayerSyrena Grima Wormtongue by SlayerSyrena
Grima Wormtongue from the Two Towers. I had the opportunity to give a print of this to Brad Dourif, who said he liked it.

This illustration was also featured in the art book, 'The Ringling 100'.

This was done with micron pens on bristol board.

omgosh if I ever got to meet Brad Dourif in person I'd probably just start sputtering nonsense and, like, pass out. Like... I'm pretty good at playing cool with famous peeps, or at least channeling my SQUEE into enthusiastic charisma, but, omg. Dourif.

I'd inevitably trip over my tongue and mention something about all the smut I've read/drawn of his characters and then I'd just die :XD:

Oh gosh, this is so incredible! His expression is perfect, and I can't stop admiring the way you drew his hand!
And all that shading (fanspazz)!
It's awesome you got to meet Brad Dourif and share your art with him! :D

He was my second favourite. After Saruman. I've always wanted to meet Brad... And Sir Christopher Lee. Those are my two biggest dreams. To meet them.

I met Brad, he was very nice. Haven't met Christopher Lee yet... although I did meet a bunch of other LOTR actors, including Ian.

Thanks! It was a huge treat for me. (This was at the red carpet premiere for 'Return of the King'. I was invited because my brother-in-law, Dean Wright, was the producer of visual effects for the film.)

Grima was a very complex character, I was glad that this was shown in the film.

Oh God I want the Hobbit to come out now! December seems so far XD

I am one of the very few people who likes him and his hair and his pretty cape.

He's simply lovely. One of my favorite characters (in which I refuse to put in direct order, for it's too hard to just choose ONE most favorite character from LotR) from the movie. :D
