Boy, that`s rich! Nice work, really! :D

Is it possible for you to do the similar comparison, only this time comparing characters from PJ`s LotR (2001 - 2003) with characters that appear in Bakshi`s LotR (1978)?

I really enjoyed both versions for what they were, but I think someone really misinterpreted elves in general that first time around.
And Smaug reminds me of a cat.

My reactions of these characters:

1977 Bilbo: ........ cute? chubby?
2012 Bilbo: AWESOME!!


1977 Gandalf: gotta say he looks a little evil here............
2012 Gandalf: just like old Gandalf as always! :)


1977 Thorin: old, wrinkly, big nose! (like Balin, don't you think?)
2012 Thorin: badass dwarf king


1977 Elrond: starry crown! (and strange eyes)
2012 Elrond: elvish


1977 Thranduil: OH MY GOSH poor Thranduil he looks like a goblin...
2012 Thranduil: ultimate elven-king. Cool crown! (and cloak)


1977 Bard: dunno why makes me think of a video game character I saw somewhere
2012 Bard: black arrow!


1977 Smaug: a cat/fox/bat, but still if he doesn't have flashlight eyes, it's okay :)
2012 Smaug: best dragon ever!! (honestly) though he's technically a wyvern, but I don't mind at all

So conclusion is that the new ones are better but hey the 1977 ones are such a long time ago! We can't really compare them.

Are you speaking about Ralf Bakshi`s LoTR there? Or maybe its RotK continuation that was made by the company other than Bakshi? :giggle:

Gandalf looks pretty much the same, but damn, animated Eldrond had such a cooler crown! Hard to beat actual stars, tho.

Oh, that would ROCK, Might be a bit hard to cgi, depending on the needed realism of the stars...

I know that, I mean it might be a hard effect to get just right. Are the stars purely realistic? Do they have a slight lack of realism that makes them happen to look better? Or maybe just star-like gems? Do they alter the light around his face? To the alter the light around those near him or in the setting? Are they seemingly suspended or part of a crown physically sitting on him? Will they affect other renders? Really there's just a lot of variables so I can see why such a thing would have been dropped in favor of just a simple crown.

I saw that Movie from 77 about twelve or so years ago and as I saw Thranduil, my first thought was, "Why is the Elven king so ugly? What where  They thinking?"
