  1. This is so beautiful!
    You are on a really good way to be counted among the greatest Tolkien artists ever :)
    In my opinion you have already surpassed some of them, including at times (as with this one) Alan Lee.
    There. I’ve said it.

    • Thank you! Alan Lee and I have a very different approach to illustration, and it’s mainly a matter of preference, I’d say. (I know I’d kill for his woodland skills!)

  2. Your illustrations always make my fan heart happy! Especially since you’ve got so much art for more obscure stories – I’m in love!
    On a super particular note: I love how you painted the wound! It’s not gory, but still gruesome, which is such a hard balance to strike.
