Truly terrible Tolkien-inspired artwork

Hey all,
For a laugh, I recommend going to Aervir's LJ post here: http://www.livejournal.com/users/aervir/9990.html?view=69382#t69382
She's assembled some truly terrible Tolkien-inspired kitsch and added some great commentary.  Good for a real laugh. Wait'll you see exotic-dancer Luthien and Robinhood-clone Beren.

I think I just peed myself a little.

To be fair, I didn't think that the first four were that horrible, however kitsch the may be, but it all went down hill alarmingly fast from the point where Luthien is depicted as an exotic dancer.

Yeah, I agree. That Luthien - shudder.
Glad you enjoyed.

I am having a terrible day but these really helped. Nothing like a bout of hysterical laughter to put things into perspective. Thanks. The Pieta will be with me for a long, long time to come, as will *shudder* Luthien, and as for Ulmo....
*hugs* - kei

Ah sorry to hear you're having a terrible day. Glad these helped. Yes that Pieta was truly, truly horrible. I loved the strategic placement of Ulmo's beard! LOL! He looked like the creature from the black lagoon. And that wildly energetic but completely inappropriate dance by Luthien. Although I must say I always wondered about Tolkien's dancing female elves (and Goldberry). I mean what kinda dance would they be doing - really? I've been meaning to write you a long e-mail, will do so soon.
