Faramir's Shield by ever-so-excited Faramir's Shield by ever-so-excited
Faramir's Shield ~ (The Lord of the Rings)
Available as prints, posters, mousepads and more here on deviantArt + on RedBubble

Ranger of the North, son of the steward, soldier of Gondor. Though not a member of the Fellowship himself, Faramir plays his own crucial role in aiding the journey of the One Ring through Middle Earth. Unappreciated by his father and shadowed by the successes of his older brother, Faramir comes to prove his value to members of the Fellowship and peoples of Middle Earth during the War of the Ring, solidifying himself as a worthy ally in the fight against evil. Show your appreciation for Faramir’s deeds by displaying his shield in artistic form.

About the Piece:

Faramir is one of my favorite characters from The Lord of the Rings and I've seen the movies OVER 9000 times, but I only discovered recently that he had an actual shield all to himself designed by WETA and the LOTR film crew. If I recall correctly, you only get a quick glimpse of this beautiful shield once or twice in The Two Towers and that's sadly it. The arms and armor designed for LOTR are absolutely fantastic, and those designs are exactly why I started this Shields series to begin with. Faramir's shield is no exception and between how much I love Gondor, how much I relate to Faramir, and how beautiful the overall design is, this shield was always at the top of my "to-do" list. This shield was a lot of fun to make in Photoshop, partially because it took a fraction of the time the The Numenorean Shield did. Total time for this piece is around 6-7 hours, only because I was distracted and being indecisive with some of the final details and shading towards the end. The entirety of the design was done in around 3 hours, though, so all in all one of my faster pieces! I really enjoy this shield and I very much hope other LOTR fans do, too! :nod:

I love this! If you don't mind, I'd like to get this as a tattoo?

haha I wouldn't mind at all! ;) It's created from official WETA design so ultimately it's not really up to me. You are more than welcome to use it as a reference for the tattoo artist, though. :nod: I'd love to see photos if/when you get it!!

Wonderful!  I'm also a fan of Faramir and it's nice that you were able to recreate his personal emblem.

That is awesome to hear! :love: I think he's a somewhat under-appreciated character in the Tolkienverse when compared to the members of the Fellowship so I'm always really happy to come across fans who really enjoy him. :nod: Thank you for the comment! :D

AMAZINGLY EPIC!!! La la la la
Especially the texture of the shield~ Really awesome! Heart
I never noticed this shield design before either!
Although I've only watched The Lord of the Rings once when I was little, so I remember almost nothing about it....
