Theoden Poem Stamp by DutchOrca Theoden Poem Stamp by DutchOrca
My first stamp!

This took me about an hour to do in PS CS3 Extended. I ended up with 15 different images and 63 frames in animation.

This quote, spoken by Théoden in The Two Towers, struck me when I first heard it in a TTT trailer. Very moving.

Feel fee to download and use, both off and on dA. If you download and use, please comment here, so I know you like it.

As this is my first attempt at making a stamp, comments, hints, tips, critique etc, is highly appreciated.

(I know Théoden is supposed to be written with the little dash on top of the e in the title, but dA wouldn't let me add the little dash)

All of the Rohirrim horse images are made with PS brushes.

Brushes by :iconamarieveanne-stock: and :iconelbereth-de-lioncour:

Really loved it! Theoden is one of my favourite characters and you did really good on using the poem in a stamp!

Just when i was thinking "okay, it would be really epic if they faded to black after the 'into shadow' line..." what happens? Fadetoblack adjbaksghnakrgj.

That was epic and amazing and I love you. That is all.

And for some reason I can't help but think of Green Rider seeing that. Completely unrelated book, but... :shrug:

I have never heard of the Green Rider. I'll google it :sherlock:

The poem in the LOTR movie was also in the books as I recall. It always pulled at my heart. Thank you for finally making a stamp of it!

IYes, it's a very moving poem. One of my favorite passages!

this is wonderful, and I can't believe it doesn't have more comments!! I absolutely love this scene in the trilogy, this poem really tugs at my heart. I also think I may be one of the only Theoden fans on here... I mean, I love Aragorn and Sam and a bunch of other characters too, but c'mon, where's the love for the King of Rohan?!? No stamp or anything D: So thank you for making this lovely stamp... I love all of the Rohirrim horses on there too :heart:

Thank for the kind words, always nice to hear.

That scene was very moving and Theoden is one of my favorite characters, too. I love the Rohirrim people; slightly Nordic feel, horse culture, all those greens; what's not to love?
