daily doodle 14: Frodo the ringbearer

Frodo es el verdadero protagonista de El Señor de los Anillos. Por manejar a veces hasta 5 caminos dentro de la historia, Tolkien nos hacía pensar que Frodo había muerto en algún lugar e incluso acelerabas la lectura para poder regresar a sus capítulos. Esto no le restaba importancia a Aragorn, Gandalf y los demás, porque finalmente lo que creaban era tiempo para que Frodo cumpliera con su misión. Como todo antihéroe, Frodo no es perfecto, comete errores y se transforma a medida que la historia acaba.

 is the true protagonist of The Lord of the Rings. Driving sometimes up to five story lines,  Tolkien made ​​us think that Frodo had died somewhere and that forced us to accelerate our reading in order to return to his chapters. This does not downgrade Aragorn, Gandalf and the others, because you feel a connection between them, so you realize that they are buying time for Frodo to fulfill his mission. For me it is a very powerful concept that one so small could do this incredible task. Like any antihero, Frodo is not perfect, he makes mistakes and suffers from an addiction that consumes him until the end of the story.

I love it, great work on this! You've done well in showing the drama and pressure of Frodo's journey in a single picture.

He's scuffed up and looking pensively around while the eye of Sauron looms in the background, they are both looking for each other but neither really sees the other.

Thank you very much Anita! I am willing to continue the series, still wondering who to do next. There will be more LotR illustrations anytime soon :)
