In the The Two Towers DVD extras, the film’s swordmaster, Bob Anderson, described Mortensen as “the best swordsman I’ve ever trained.” Mortensen often spent days hiking to the film’s remote locations, in costume and carrying his sword, in order to appear authentically travel-worn; he also performed all of his own stunts, and even the injuries he sustained during several of them did not dampen his enthusiasm. At one point during shooting of The Two Towers, Mortensen, Orlando Bloom, and Brett Beattie (scale double for John Rhys-Davies) all had painful injuries, and during a shoot of them, running in the mountains, Peter Jackson jokingly referred to the three as “the walking wounded.” Also, according to the Special Extended Edition DVD of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, Mortensen purchased the two horses, Uraeus and Kenny, whom he rode and bonded with over the duration of the films.
you’re walking in the woods
there is no one around
and your phone is dead
out of the corner of your eye you spot him
Sometimes I think of how one tiny mutated cell can wipe out our whole civilization, but then I watch a video like this and think “nah, we’re way too awesome of a species to be defeated.”
I feel like my life is complete after watching this.
HOLY SHITTING CHRIST.HOW DOES HE MANAGE TO KEEP SUCH A GOOD TONE QUALITY. WHAT THE SHIT. I CAN’T. JUST.
Seriously, as somebody who is relatively good at the flute let me tell you that that is really fucking difficult. REALLY FUCKING DIFFICULT. That’s like the flautist’s equivalent of trying to talk normally whilst breathing in: it just isn’t doable. This guy is using some freaky fucking sorcery. As if that weren’t bad enough: HIS FINGERS ON THAT LAST BLOODY SCALE HOLY SHIT. HOW CAN YOU MOVE THAT FAST. I CAN’T EVEN DO F BLOODY MAJOR THAT FAST AND IT’S THE EASIEST BLOODY SCALE WE HAVE HOLY CHRIST.

You can get a print HERE !
So this is actually a 4 year old piece, very inspired by LOTR! I wanted to make it available for print so I refined it in a few places, although it’s largely intact.
I still like it, but I would make many things differently today! This also still has some matte-painting elements with photo-textures, which is something that I virtually don’t use today unless it’s for concept art in client work.
Hope you like it anyway!
i talk a lot of shit for someone who can’t choose rude dialogue options in games because i’m scared of hurting a characters feelings
The face of a broken man
In Roman community baths, it was customary for men to stand and applaud when a well-endowed peer entered the water.

Nuke Map is not fun to play with
The good news is that if a nuclear bomb strikes downtown Indianapolis, I will only get third degree burns all over my body instead of dying straight away.
When I lived in Washington DC, one of the things that comforted me was that I only lived 1.5 miles from the Pentagon, a primary target, and would therefore be completely vaporized in less than half a second in the event of an average-sized nuclear detonation.
The USSR bombs though, holy shit
Reblogging cuz I’m in DC.
Well it could be for writing research?
Actually kinda disappointed that it won’t work in the 3 million kiloton range cause then you could see the destruction if you were made of antimatter.
