your awesome pictures are on the tolkienreadalong on tumblr, they are gorgeous ! i think you should look at the tour de france , so many chiselled faces with square jaws 😉 i hope they inspire you. i've gathered a load of pre-raphaelite and Romantic paintings that I think inspired Tolkien and given them captions of Silmarillion quotes, i think it would amuse you, its at hennethgalad on tumblr and is in text order. keep up the fabullous work. 😃
Wow, the figure in the painting really POPS out at the viewer! I was fooled into thinking this was a digital painting at first haha, but I can definitely see the meticulous traditional techniques used for this painting. This is very well done.
