Gollum and Arwen

Did anyone else look at the Gollum picture? Talking about something that didn't live up to the hype that was created.  Don't get me wrong, I don't hate the design.   I just wasn't blown away by it like so many of you are. I know it will look better once it is completed with colors, etc. At this point, it just looks like a monkey with large eyes to me. Oh yeah, the Arwen part should be bigger and I have felt that way since I read the book 15 years ago. Just not part of the fellowship, but a bigger part. Remember that Tolkien wrote these books before women had large parts in anything, much less a fantasy book.
