All I can say is this is awesome (because I am at a loss for better words), Tolkien would be proud.
Though Medieval setting wasn't 100% your strong suit, your fantasy is still far superior than Martin's.
omg this is so great!
Ваши работы такие нежные и легкие. Круче сильмариллов.
It is well done, yet a little stiff.
Очень красивый портрет.Мне нравится ваша техника
This portrait is very well-done.
This is a lovely portrait of him
ух тыы!!! хоть распечатывай и на стену вешай!
Wonderful painting style!
A salute to the master. You seem to have based it off a rare photo that doesn't show him with a pipe in his mouth!
He was a handsome feller too, eh? Nice work!
This shading is done very nicely!
I´ve never seen his face, to be honest. At first I thought it was a Picture of some politician xD
I fav'd. It is partly because I am Tolkien-fan and founding member of Hungarian Tolkien Society, bla-bla-bla. But the main reason is the exceptional portrait. It follows one of the well-known JRRT portraits, but has its unique features that differ from the original picture and add up some quality. I don't know too much about drawing techniques, so I just set it like "I like this image. It gives some extra and reflects the fond relation of the artist (and me) to Tolkien. Therefore it is good." Thank you.
Awesome work...keep it up!
*squeaks* It's him! Awesome work, I love the little spilled ink detail :3
Wonderful painting, you have a nice style.
A great portrait painting for a great writer!
