  1. This really turned out exceptionally well! I love the detail and the composition, but mostly I love the colour scheme. I hope to see it at Tag. Best! Becky

  2. This is absolutely fantastic. I am n love with details on the clothing. The contrast between the Elven and the Mannish aspects, both in gaze and posture and how you have garbed them. I love so much of your Silmarillion work, but this may be a new favorite!

    • Yes, Beleg leaning against a tree, at ease yet elegant. You could teach Peter Jackson a thing or two about Elven posture. They don’t have to stand to attention all the time.

  3. This is stunning!
    It looks so crisp, yet soft at the same time; that, and the color scheme, make you feel like you are in the forest with them.
    The posing is also amazing, and I want that helmet, and the shield, too.

  4. Beleg and Turin have always been one of my favorite Tolkien friendships. Your artwork is beautiful, as always – this might be one of my new favorites.

  5. Verzeih mir bitte den deutschen Kommentar, aber ich glaube mein Englisch wäre im Moment kaum lesbar.
    Das Bild ist sehr schön, auch wenn ich die dumpfe Befürchtung habe, dass jemanda aus meinem Semester nun für immer “Túrin” für michs ein wird….
    Aber das tut hier nichts zur Sache: Wirklich faszinierend finde ich Túrins Neugier/Begeisterung, mit der er zu Beleg sehen kann (was wirklich zu ihm passt, wie ich finde) und Beleg, der dagegen sehr ruhg wirkt.
    Oh und das flauschige Blattwerk hat es mit angetan
