The Lonely Rider by seifer-sama The Lonely Rider by seifer-sama
Character: Brom
From: Eragon

Well here is one of my chapter pictures. This would be the story of how Brom came to possess the sword Zar'roc. i don't really want to say too much more in case some of you can not read the book.

This one took slightly less time than the cover, mainly because I am a little more used to the program. However, it decided to crash on me at least three times and I had to start over after about an hours worth of work. Ah well... the wonderful thing about computers right? *laughs*

As for Brom, I liked the costume design they gave him for the movie. So as you can see it's based off of that. :)

Materials: Drawn by hand with a HB art pencil, colored in Corel Painter 8

Time taken: About 6 hours

You have captured the very essence of Brom! He looks just like I pictured him. I didn't like the movie, but I loved the way Jeremy Irons played Brom! Murtagh was cool too, but Brom is amazing! :D

I liked Brom. He was awesome. I didnt like the movie depiction of him, though. My Brom looked more like Gandalf. XD Excellent work!

Lovely depiction. :) I adore your rough, messy style and the way Brom's pose and Zar'roc were drawn. I really like the rainy sky, too. :)

I absolutely adored the book Eragon, and Brom was by far my favorite character. Then I saw the movie... I cried. It was so sad how they killed that book, it really was. Angela was young and pretty, there was no werecat, Arya was a mess, and I think the writers skimmed the book and said, "Let's take the main plot then make everything else up."

Brom was the only good thing in the entire movie. Jeremy Irons is the only reason I would sit through it again. I was wary at first because of his obvious lack of what the author wanted, but he made it work. In fact I prefer the Jeremy version of Brom. Anyway, love your picture, good job.

*laughs* I feel the same way. I swear it's like he didn't even read the book when he made the movie. Saphira did not shimmer enough... I was sad... and Murtagh was like a rushed in character for the hell of it. It just didn't make any sense unless you had read the book and even then because it didn't follow the book at all, it didn't make much sense. Brom was the best character in that movie though, if not for him, like you said, I would not be able to watch it. :) Thanks for the comment.

Quite honestly, I think the movie was only good because they had a great Brom. I was skeptical when I first saw him, but when I saw the movie I was like "Damn! he was the only one trying to save the book!" I also liked Eragon's costume in the movie, although everyone else seemed to hate his costume...

EXCELLENT BROM! *three thumbs up*

*laughs* I do have to admit that I think they had an awesome Brom. I was a bit worried myself... but I think he really pulled off Brom. I was pleased with him. I was very disappointed with Arya though... no pointy ears, no dark hair, she didn't even act very elf-like either. Sad really. Ah well, what can you do?

Thanks for the comment. :)

You can make your own movie O_o

But ya, the whole of the movie was very disappointing. It made my sister want to kill the guys two row ahead of us when they started clapping at the end of the movie.

*laughs* Um... No I don't think I can make my own movie. (Did I say I could?) *a tad confused*

Anyway yeah the movie didn't do the book justice... and I know that people said the same thing about Lord of the Rings but I at least think that it was closer to the books then this movie was... If they do decide to do Eldest I request they follow the story a bit more.
