Robin Of Loxley by ChrisRawlins Robin Of Loxley by ChrisRawlins
Robin Hood, a hero,
legend, myth or man?
Lived in merry England,
In the Shire of Nottingham.

So, hooded villains dressed in green,
hiding in the wood,
Right or wrong or in-between,
I think I understood,
That circumstance makes men appear
as something they'd soon not,
Both time and trouble makes them do,
things they'd rather not.
How jolly is the wooded green,
how merry this your age?

Great work, very moody. I used it in an article on my site, is that OK? >> [link]

I grew up in a village on the edge of Sherwood, it was ten minutes walk from my house, used to play in the famous oak tree 'Robin Hoods larder' :-)

Love this piece. Very much!
I am a theatre producer/writer/director and have a Robin Hood series of stage scripts that are heading to production this summer. We are also looking at other mediums for the property, including comic book. One of our ideas is to find artists who have Robin Hood art and feature those pieces in a competition, as well as display during the show.
We are publishing the scripts, and are hoping to find artists wishing to submit works to be considered for the cover of the published edition.
As well, we hope to have a charity art show eventually and feature all artists who submit and open it for those artists to sell prints of their work, and auction off originals for charity.
I would love to add your work to our stuff. Please contact me. upstge@yahoo.com

This was directly patterned on an image of Legolas from Lord of the Rings, wasn't it. I recognize the pose, the bow and the equipment in his back.

Was this the image you used?

Hey, don't know if this has been addressed yet, but I'm not sure why the bowstring is on the outside of his arm...that's a pretty impractical place to have it resting (speaking as an archer).

Otherwise, I really, really like this. Excellent work.
