Sam and Frodo vs. Shelob Lord of the Rings Book Nook
There are a lot of book nook projects, even book nook-heavy channels, on YouTube these days. My current favorite is North of the Border. On it, Adam makes lovely dioramas, book nooks, and other “tiny nerdy things.”
For this project, he sculpts the characters and stairway of Cirith Ungol from LotR where Frodo and Sam are confronted by the giant spider, Shelob.
There are lots of great sculpting, painting, and modeling tips in here.
