    Asked by ANON: Favorite 80s Fantasy Films

    The 80s was truly the best decade for cheesy 80s fantasy films. If you haven’t seen all of these, you’re missing out. In order of pictures:

    • Legend (1985) 
    • The Last Unicorn (1982)
    • Ladyhawke (1985)
    • Labyrinth (1986)
    • The Secret of Nimh (1982) 
    • The Neverending Story (1984)
    • Red Sonja (1985)
    • Masters of the Universe (1987)
    • Return to Oz (1985)
    • Highlander (1986)
    • Conan the Barbarian (1982)
    • Krull (1983)
    • Excalibur (1981)
    • Clash of the Titans (1981)
    • Dark Crystal (1982)
    • The Princess Bride (1987)
    • Willow (1988)
    • The Beastmaster (1982)



    My childhood.

    Willow? Cheesy?

    Peck! Peck! Peeeeeeck!

    Very cheesy.

    Ugh I love them all.

    Some of my most favourite movies.. can’t be any cheesier than the movies today, at least they are lighthearted and fun :)

    The Dark Crystal is really Jim Henson’s masterpiece.  If you haven’t seen it, do…and then remember that it was all done without computer effects.  

    Also, the soundtrack is finally available on CD, etc.  

    Excuse you!  Dark Crystal and Labyrinth cheesy??? I think you meant ‘brilliant’. Some of the others, yeah … Beastmaster was cheesy, but dang Marc Singer was beautiful in it, and they had all the pretty critters.  You also left out The Sword and the Sorcerer; that one truly IS cheesy, and great fun.

    Journey is a fantastic game. if you havent played it: do it now. right this second. then come back and tell me how awesome and pretty it was. because WOW scenery.

    we used a lot of metallic paint in this. about 8 different kinds. the result was well worth the expense, i’d say. It looks so much better in person. I’ll try to get some detail shots up later.

    • Prompts for the week

    Character Analysis – explore Fili’s character to give him more substance.

    There’s so little about Fili that we’re shown. Who exactly is Fili, son of Dis, crown prince of Erebor? What are his thoughts and feelings? Personality quirks, habits,…

  • The Heir of Erebor

    They won back their home and used the Dragon hide from their conquered foe as armor strong enough to deflect sword and arrow.

    I wasnt gonna post it, but typing-nonsense watched the whole stream of it and told me i absolutely should. So…here ya go.

    Since I love potatoes I have to reply. I just want to know one thing — are all our Hobbit artists beautiful? I really am thinking it’s a prerequisite. I like your eyebrows and think they give your face character. Even beautiful women need character. And what amazing eyes you have my dear… This is just a lovely piece of art of a very lovely young woman. :)

    Thank you so much! I saw this when you replied, but i didnt know what to say because it just made me so happy. I was (understandably) nervous about posting a self portrait and your comment just instantly soothed all the worries, so thank you so very much for that. 

    and I love potatoes too! they are arguably the best vegetable. i havent met a potato i didnt like.

  • Dis, her Mother and Grandmother. (Thrain and Thror’s wives) 

    I decided the lovely Dwarf women deserved a photoset of their own.
