    Eowyn & Nazgul -Open Studio

    Hey Conceptart!

    It's been forever, and another year passes by and i thought I'd share this very recent piece, Eowyn and the Nazgul on the fields of Pelennor, oil on panel, 30" x 40". Created as a private commission, but pulling double duty as part of my new Middle-Earth art book due out later this year- Middle-Earth: Visions of a Modern Myth. I'll post more on that at another time, as there are so many images to go with it.

    Another reason for this post, is I am hosting an Open Studio again this coming weekend, June 5-6th, from 1-6pm each day. I'll have Eowyn here as well as many other drawing and paintings for the book and various other projects.

    Directions to the studio:

    Also included here are the rough drawings that got me going on the image.

    Enjoy!

    Donato

    Ahh, yes, a new piece from Donato! I love the contrast between the realistic and the fantastic. I'm thinking about how the head of the beast looks like that animal could exist for real, but the Nazgul himself is this more iconic, graphic silhouette with invisible head. Or the difference between the realistic grass in the foreground and the swirly smoke in the background. Love it!

    Donato, as always, thanks for sharing your visions and being so giving! This piece is really cool, feels a bit raw and rough which is really nice to see from you. Love this image and cannot wait to see the new art book!

    I can almost always tell your book covers by your distinctive style. I love the detail and composition in this piece. You are great!

    Awesome!

    I'm glad you posted it so large.

    I saw a preview of it on Eric Braddock's blog when he visited you.

    I love the sketches!

    @ Imagine13. If you want to see his painting process go buy his DVD about the Mechanic. I highly recommend it!
