I've always liked Quickbeam, and this is the first depiction of him I've seen. I like how although he looks gnarled and elderly he still has this vitality and energy to him that conveys his relative youth; I'd never mistake this for a drawing of Treebeard, for instance.
I think now is a great time to draw an ent Go on - you know you want to! I mean - look at all those clouds out there... and the wind... a horrible day to be outside.... a great day to draw an ent! You know you want to.....brainwashed yet?
This is great. I really loved how Tolkein portrayed Quickbeam in LotR. Your drawing captures his personality brilliantly. I especially love his face. His ears and his nose are excellent. I really like the woody knurls as well.

i accidentally hit the wrong button and requested a print of this image. thats what i get for clicking the page so randomly... i apologize!! i would in fact not like a print, although it is an amazing drawing. ^^
hahhahhah - many thanks. I think that was a perfectly eloquent comment
Secretly I am very pleased with this one. It combines my love for character work and drawing trees. I don't know why I didn't think of it sooner!
