fantastic job as always
ive already been through all your work multiple times (in that non stalkery kind of way ...lol) as its the best lotr art ive ever come across. Your skill with watercolor is amazing and you should seriously consider putting out a book with all your work... i would buy it in a heartbeat. btw, concerning a comment i saw on another picture -- microcephalous
mall headed (but i dont think eowyn looks like that compared to faramir, though i must say your characters improve w/ ea. new picture) keep up the fantastic work

arg...sorry for the spelling mistakes.
"Characteristic" "Admirable" "have".

I just stumbled upon your art, and I'm so glad.
I love th fact that you have your own style, but keep true to the books.
Also not many people are brave (or talented) enough to use waterclours like you do. You paint the leaves and nature wonderfully.
The only thing, that bothers me is the faces of the people. They seem to somehow lack haracterictic features. But that might be because, you paint mostly, pencils are easier.
And most admirabl thing is that you have the patience to do all the leaves and the grass.
(Hobbits will be always a problem for many artists. This Frodo looks good, but everybody thinks that Frodo&Co hve to bee handsome/cute. They're just normal hobbits; round and hairy.

i like your Frodo much more than the actor that played him, he is nearly to the T how I imagined

I so love it that you make Frodo look like an adult. So many artists make hobbits look like children and it drive me crazy. I also like your economy of line and the way you handle shading and color. A lovely pic.

Beautiful picture! I love the color scheme; it really gives off that autumnal feeling that the elves' time in Middle Earth is ending. I agree about Haldir's kooky arm, but the composition of the picture doesn't suffer much for it. I think I like Haldir as a blond; I wasn't all that fond of Figwit (Frodo Is Great Who Is That?!). The leaves are gorgeous!
I stumbled upon a reference to your pages while perusing other LotR artwork, and I am very glad I visited! What I have seen of your art is absolutely marvellous (especially swoon-worthy Faramir!!). I feel almost an Alan Lee vibe from your art; probably the delicacy of the watercolor speaking.

What a beautiful picture! I am new to your work, referred by my enthusiastic friend Nimloth, but I wholly share her love of your paintings.
Used to seeing Elijah Wood as Frodo, his face here startled me a little, but I agree that he ought not to look as young as Elijah.
Thank you, and keep up the good work!

Coming back here after getting un-used to the movie again, and after looking at more of your work, I better appreciate the amazing detail and accuracy of this painting. Your work is the best! Keep it up!

Yes! Someone who remembered to make Lothlorien the GOLDEN wood!!!! That’s the one thing I didn’t like about the Fellowship movie!
