Pixel Art: Lord of the Rings Early PC
The Lord of the Rings Atari 2600 game never made it out of prototype, but you can still download the rom and play the game on Stella. I wouldn't trouble yourself too much, however, because you can't actually do anything other than avoid Nazgul and run through trees.
These are what LOTR sprites may have looked like on an early PC. In the first palette, the colors are all pure hexadecimal (#FF0000 as red, for example), which reminds me of when computers could only display 8 colors (or less) at a time. The others are just to show some possible variations of the sprites.
I drew these, of course.
