The two gardeners by Doodemoiidesu
The two gardeners
I've done similar sketches in the past, but I very much enjoy the idea of these two gardening together. I find it hard to believe that they did not have more interaction in the books. I imagine Sam garnered excellent advice from Legolas, and that they would have much to speak about! I like the idea of them trading tips. Tolkien says that it takes much for the earth to forget the memory of the elves, and so I imagine Sam's gardens -- and Ithilien and the gardens of Minas Tirith -- were quite the envy of gardeners for many years.

I've also always found it touching that Galadriel passed on a mallorn seed to Sam (that must speak something for his skill! Certainly it must have impressed an elf of the woodland realm like Legolas!)
Before the Dark Door by Doodemoiidesu
Before the Dark Door
"Then Aragorn led the way, and such was the strength of his will in that hour that all the Dunedain and their horses followed him. And indeed the love that the horses of the Rangers bore for their riders was so great that they were willing to face even the terror of the Door, if their masters' hearts were steady as they walked beside them. But Arod, the horse of Rohan, refused the way, and he stood sweating and trembling in a fear that was grievous to see. Then Legolas laid his hands on his eyes and sang some words that went soft in the gloom, until he suffered himself to be led, and Legolas passed in."

- Lord of the Rings, Return of the King (The Passing of the Grey Company)

(Unfortunately, I'm QUITE displeased with how this turned out, although I had liked the sketch. The proportions were ruined in the process, but it was too far along to fix. I've redone it, and will post the somewhat improved version...) 
So I've made a website!

Give it a look!
