 The Old Forest by Sieskja
The Old Forest
by
:iconsieskja:

"They picked a way among the trees, and their ponies plodded along, carefully avoiding the many writhing and interlacing roots. There was no undergrowth. The ground was rising steadily, and as they went forward it seemed that the trees became taller, darker, and thicker. There was no sound, except an occasional drip of moisture falling through the still leaves. For the moment there was no whispering or movement among the branches; but they all got an uncomfortable feeling that they were being watched with disapproval, deepening to dislike and even enmity. The feeling steadily grew, until they found themselves looking up quickly, or glancing back over their shoulders, as if they expected a sudden blow."

J.R.R. Tolkien,The Fellowship of the Ring, Book I, Chapter 6 "The Old Forest"

Errand-riders in the Night

:iconpeet:

'There was a silence again for a while. Then, 'What is that?' cried Pippin suddenly, clutching at Gandalf's cloak. 'Look! Fire, red fire! Are there dragons in this land? Look, there is another!'
For answer Gandalf cried aloud to his horse. 'On, Shadowfax! We must hasten. Time is short. See! The beacons of Gondor are alight, calling for aid. War is kindled. See, there is the fire on Amon Don, and flame on Eilenach; and there they go speeding west: Nardol, Erelas, Min-Rimmon, Calenhad, and the Halifirien on the borders of Rohan.'
But Shadowfax paused in his stride, slowing to a walk, and then he lifted up his head and neighed. And out of the darkness the answering neigh of other horses came; and presently the thudding of hoofs was heard, and three riders swept up and passed like flying ghosts in the moon and vanished into the West.'

Atanatar II Alcarin of Gondor by neral85
Atanatar II Alcarin of Gondor
by
:iconneral85:

Atanatar II was the sixteenth king of Gondor. His father Hyarmendacil I had been one of Gondor's greatest Kings, so Atanatar II inherited a powerful empire stretching from the Greyflood to the Sea of Rhûn, and to which even the Men of Umbar and Harad paid homage. The King loved luxury and it was during his reign that the original Crown of Gondor was replaced by a jeweled helm. "Men said precious stones were pebbles in Gondor for children to play with." The wealth and splendour of Atanatar's realm earned him the title Alcarin ('Glorious') but he did little to maintain its strength, and nothing to expand its influence. Thus already during Atanatar's reign, Gondor began to stagnate. Atanatar II ruled Gondor for seventy-seven years, during which the wealth and power created by his father slowly began to wane. He was succeeded by his eldest son Narmacil I.

by
:iconnim-lock:

"Looking down upon Turin she cried: 'Farewell, O twice beloved! A Turin Turambar turun ambartanen: master of doom by doom mastered! O happy to be dead!' Then Brandir who had heard all, standing stricken upon the edge of ruin, hastened towards her; but she ran from him distraught with horror and anguish, and coming to the brink of Cabed-en-Aras she cast herself over, and was lost in the wild water" (Silmarillion, 223).

Thank you very much for the request! ^^
I was not sure that this portrait of Galadriel could be featured in Silmarillion group, I thought, that she looks there like a queen of Lorien)

It complies with the rules regarding Galadriel, that's why I submitted it.
I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it (as it happens with the rest of your work :) :love:)

Hi all, 

I wanted to make a proposal to all illustrators who share their art here : would you be interested to contribute of a Tolkien fanbook?

to date, we are 6 French illustrators, but it will be perfect if we form a group of 10/15 illustrators, including from other countries.

it will be a fanbook designed like the ones you can find in amateur stands of any japan/comics convention. It will be printed and sold on pre-order. see go through a process of participatory financing.

we give priority to the principle of developing a fanbook by fans, for fans. however, and if we really are very lucky; if it is profitable, the amount that remains after the impressions will be given to all participating artists.

If you have any questions or you are interested, leave a message here or send a note to Daswhox. 

Thank you, happy halloween and have a good day. <3
