wee update: Glaurung in Nargothrond
I've been listening to The Silmarillion on audiobook again lately. Some of the names are so evocative. Sirion, Beleriand, Doriath etc. Here's a couple of scenes inspired by this great book.
PS: I know the second image needs some sort of human/elven presence, but everything I added didn't seem to work. ho hum.

i agree with molly- beautiful pieces! and i also think the second piece is nice as it is, not that im experienced in that field. Im not familiar with the story, but i could imagine a child playing in the ruins

Awesome stuff! In the first one I might would have changed to angle of the sun so as the glowstreak didn't coincide with the bridgething.

Not enough Silmarillion inspired pieces in my opinion - these are fantastic!! Thanks for sharing!
“It is enough that we set out to mold the motley stuff of life into some form of our own choosing; when we do, the performance is itself the wage.”
"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom the emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause and stand wrapped in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed." ~Albert Einstein

Awesome stuff man.
I love the absence of presence in the second piece, infact to me it kind of makes the emotional impact. Theres a lonely, "lost in time" kind of sense that you (or maybe its just me being the werido that I am) get from ruins and abandoned buildings. Like there used to be people here, there's evidence of that, but then something happened...Maybe they moved to greener fields, or the civilization fell into disarry and abadoned this structure. Were there feasts and partys held here? grand ceremonies of kingly sucession? what words echoed in those halls when there were people there? Its like an invitation to imagine a story. Fantastic.
If I were to make a suggestion, it would be that the horse is alittle too sharp, edgewise. I also think another animal, doing its thing inside the structure would add to the abandoned feeling the piece evokes, as well as add to the element of reclaimation already present due to the hanging vines and mosses.

My 2 favourite things - Tolkien and Summer Pudding - TOGETHER!!!
Absolutely awesome work again Pete. My heart skipped a beat when i saw it was new work from you, and when I saw that these were Tolkien inspired it skipped a few more!
I couldn't save these fast enough! Thank you for keeping us all inspired! Will you be doing any more of these soon? I hate the wait between new pieces from you!
