Lord of the Rings Online: Gollum Concept Art and Models

SzarkSzark News ManagerAnna Regina, NSPosts: 4,420Member

Turbine has sent over concept art and images of Gollum, a character both pitied and despised in Lord of the Rings lore. This misunderstood and unfortunate creature is set to make an appearance in Book 11, the next content update for Lord of the Rings Online: the Shadows of Angmar.

You can veiw the rest of the images here.

    Very well done, although I thought I read that they weren't going to use any artistic influence from the movies.

     

    Very nice nonetheless!

    I do agree that the images are very close to the movies depiction, however they are also close to my own interpretation of what he would look like.  Just happy that he is finally in the game.

    I feel there are quite a few models copied almost direct from the movies.

    The Black Arrows in Monsterplay are the most obvious. I can't recall any Orc ( or Uruk's ) ever being described in the book that would fit the way they look.

    Still I agree that this looks just fine

    Please keep in mind the movies were based on the books. As far as i recall, Tolkin only described gollum one way.

    Even in "The hobbit" (Where the best discriptions can be found, its simmular.
