I did the same! This shows the power that this creation has over the minds of the viewers. It draws us in to look in wonderment and thought.

I love the way you did the fog, gives a very mystic feeling to this amazing work of art. Also, the grass is amazingly detailed and the overall piece reminds me of skyrim with a load of mods installed. :P This is trully a work of art! Great job!

Beautiful! As for those giant deer....I am reminded (in a good way) of the Spirit of the Forest in "Princess Mononoke."

Ah I too wish I had this very high, marvelous, and evocative skill in art. I would then spent all my drawing time on bringing forth Tolkien's world, and all the great stories and characters.

Your skill in art is a marvel to behold. Well done indeed!

I hope you have a mind to create some Tolkien art too in days to come. I (and surely many others too) would love to see Middle-earth and its people/stories portrayed by your skill and eyes of your thought.

I agree wholeheartedly. Tolkien's stories have so many wonderful scenes that would be perfect for this sort of art style.
Reply
:iconworldofmiddle-earth:
Indeed! 

As is to be expected, there is already a lot of artwork inspired by/based on Tolkien's legendary world, but there can never be enough. His work and the mythos he created is timeless.  So many scenes/moments that can be depicted through art, and us  Tolkien appreciators/enthusiasts always long to see more Middle-earth creations including music (there is some truly wonderful music Tolkien inspired pieces).

And I am very glad to speak with you about Tolkien! Always a joy it is to me to talk with fellow Tolkien readers about Middle-earth and its stories and people. It is  never-fading it seems, and always interesting.

And if you did not know yet know, (I am sorry for drifting a little away here but it is related) there is an online visual recreation of Tolkien's world where you can step in with an original character. Here is a video of it if you would like to see: www.youtube.com/watch?v=b36JZC…

But in case the artist minds, I do not want to stray away further. But always I welcome talk about Middle-earth so if you (and any others) like, feel free to write to me or on this page that I run.

Stuff like this is my #1 biggest fear, camouflaged giant mystical monsters ..... take in what I just said and then think about being stranded in space with nothing but stars and a giant star camo whale fly around you
