Another quick update on the latest developments on
As mentioned previously, the dynamic duo of Jason Potratz and Jack Hai have provided many sketch images for the site's storyboards. Most of their amazing creations were featured in the sketch collection when the site was released in January, however, a number of their PSCs were received after this.
This 16 April update showcases five of Jason’s and Jack’s PSCs. Four for The Return of the King
storyboard and one to complete a scene for The Fellowship of the Ring
. Seething with drama, these sketches remarkably transform film into sketch imagery. These sketches can be seen (and expanded for a detailed view of the artistry) at:LOTR Arts new art
This brings to a total of 185 of sketches from Jason and Jack (of both official cards and PSCs) featured on LOTR Arts
: these can viewed in the artist gallery at:LOTR Arts sketch artists
These may well be the last sketches from Jason and Jack, with Jason’s move from Vietnam. If this is the case, it would be a very sad outcome for sketch collecting. More April events
Instalment 2 of The Return of the King
