Frodo's celebrity look-alikes
This is amusing.
At least Elijah does get a mention in this collage: he's third in the list of closest matches. Lol.
He didn't turn up at all in some of the other Frodo photos I tried. But, as we all know already, the programme is mostly looking for similarities in the postion of the face and its features, not true likenesses.
Even so, I am strangely fascinated! It must be something to do with my portrait painting hobby. I think I shall try sticking a photo of my puppy into the programme next.

Have you noticed how he matched with all, bar one, women!!! He is SO beautiful, and far outshines them all!!

SO true! That is an extremely beautiful photo of Frodo too. I am not surprised that the matches were mostly women - and a particularly cute Elijah himself of course.

Well that is just so freaky!
frodos_mum From: frodos_mum Date: March 7th, 2007 01:43 pm (UTC) (Link)
It sure is freaky. Why don't you click on the link above the collage that says My Heritage or whatever, and put a pic of yourself into the programme.
Or I could do one for you. Hehehehehehe.

Well I'll tell you who I would resemble without having to put my picture in.

Inspector Rex, Rin Tin Tin, WC Fields, ummm Laurel and Hardy, well the fat one at least, need I say more.

And no dont do it for me - I can only imagine what I would end up with.

Don't worry, I won't do one of these celebrity look-alike things for you. WC Fields?! I think not. Surely he's much prettier than you.

Thank goodness they didn't pick Ryan Phillipe to be Frodo. Nothing against Ryan but a persistently brooding Frodo? Heheh.
frodos_mum From: frodos_mum Date: March 7th, 2007 01:40 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thank goodness they didn't!
I like a bit of brooding but definitely not persistent brooding. Lol.
Ryan Phillipe appears to have a permanent pout.

Good lord, Frodo looks just like Elijah Wood. Who would have thought!!!!!! Strange choices those and none really that much like Frodo, not even Lij himself!
frodos_mum From: frodos_mum Date: March 11th, 2007 07:50 am (UTC) (Link)
Hi Mole_Caz. Those celebrity look-alikes for Frodo are definitely a bit odd. It seems to be mostly based on the angle of the head.

Very interesting/wierd - now let's just imagine each of these people as Frodo, shall we? Nope - sorry, can't do it!! There is only 1 who can do Frodo justice - at least he's listed there. Elijah = Frodo = love.

Frodo's celebrity look-alikes

Hmm, yes, I am just imagining Kelly Osbourne in the role of Frodo, and I think I might have to go and be quietly sick somewhere.

That was GREAT, Frodo's Mum! I haven't been very impressed by the matches I've seen posted in other people's LJ's but have politely said nothing. I think it's *hilarious* that although Elijah Wood was listed as a match, he was only third choice . I always said EW looked a lot different when costumed as Frodo. But I never said he looked like a girl, for heaven's sake. :D

Frodo's celebrity look-alikes

Hello Mechtild!
That celebrity look-alikes thing is a bit of fun. Yes, it is hilarious that Elijah is only listed at number three in the list.
There were some even funnier matches when I put a picture of my puppy into the programme. Lol.

Frodo is so beautiful and perfect, almost feminine in his features, no wonder he got mostly female matches! But in my opinion, no one can be compared to him!

Frodo's celebrity look-alikes

Hi Melyanna. I agree with you wholeheartedly! :-)

That's just too freaky, those matches :p
I really love your Frodo art, just wonderful!
I'm new here but some know me as wispy wistaria
I'm a huge Frodo/Elijah fan *duh*
I've already saved your "erotic Frodo story" hehe
Don't worry I'm off age so allowed to read
May I friend you?

Re: hi

Hi Wispy_lass.

Thanks so much for leaving a comment. Welcome to my LJ!

Those celebrity matches are quite funny. Have you tried it yourself yet? It's quite a lot of fun. I did one with a photo of Elijah too, and interestingly enough, Elijah was the top celebrity match - but at only 83% likeness. Lol.

Thanks for looking at my Frodo art. I'm glad you like it. I get spurts of activity where I'll do a few drawings and paintings, or make a Frodo doll, and then I won't do anything new for quite a while.....I'm going through one of those inactive art/craft periods right now. ;-)

I hope you enjoy my Frodo fan-fiction. Did you save grouchy old Saruman's introduction and the editor's notes on the characters as well? They explain how I visualise the characters in my story. I tried to make it humorous and entertaining, so hopefully it's not a dreary read. Lol.
I must get on with posting Chapter 3 very soon; it appears that I am going through an inactive period with my story too!

I love your icon! Where did you get the picture - or did you draw it yourself? :-D
Am I to deduce that because it's a pic of Frodo kissing a hobbit lass, you are not averse to our favorite hobbit having a relationship with a FEMALE?!
Lol. If so, then you and I are a rare breed! Most of my friends and acquaintances are fans of Frodo/Elijah 'Slash' fictions.

Yes, please do friend me. :-)

the look-alike stuff is interesting but...

i just visited your artwork-webpage and i must say: I am deeply imressed by your colour/paint pictures! (i personally SUCK at colour paintings, so i'm paying my deepest respect to you!) my favourites are frodo crying (after gandalf's wannabe-death) and sam&frodo on the cliffside of mount doom. from your pencil drawings i like the aragorn smiling picture best! :)
the frodo-dolls are cute, too. ^^

Thank you so much for visiting my art site, and thanks for your lovely comments.
A lot of people seem to like the painting of Frodo crying after the Balrog incident. It was so moving in the film.
That was my favourite shot of Frodo in FOTR - it was the moment that I decided I would love to be Frodo's mum. Lol. (Not that all my thoughts are maternal at all!)
I find the character of Frodo, as played by Elijah in the trilogy, very inspiring in terms of my art. He is a walking work of art himself!

I'm gld you liked the drawing of Aragorn too. I really must try to draw some of the other men in LOTR, but I can never drag myself away from Frodo for too long. ;-) I do have a rough pencil sketch of Legolas on a canvas. It's been there for a year, waiting for me to apply some paint - I'll get around to it one day.....

Regarding colour paintings: I just muck around with the paint, adding bits of this and that until it looks about right.
Have you tried acrylic paint? It's easier to use than oils or watercolours, and it's fairly simple to correct any mistakes because it dries so quickly.
You can already draw great likenesses of people, so I'm sure that with a bit of practice you could render them in colour. A book on portraiture could be helpful with clues about mixing up colours for skin tones and shadows on the skin, etc.

Happy drawing!(and painting perhaps??) Bye for now.
Anne. :-)

Lij is a work of art, isn't he? *sigh* i can see why you can't get away from him for too long, me neither. ;)
but i'm looking forward to your legolas painting.

i did try acryl once in school. was okay - never tried to be realistic though (we were supposed to be "expressionistic" or something)... well, i just might try it again someday, but I'll stay with pencils for now.


yuki ^^

PS: i did have a look at your fanfiction, but this kind of stuff is just not my cup of tea. i'm a slasher at heart. :) *hugs*
