Welcome to Elfwood! I would have liked to pick one of your other pieces that have a background as a moderator’s choice, but there are very strict rules on what can go in the SF&F section. They are all excellent Tolkienist art but have small areas of the paper edge showing. If you cut small parts off in the digital versions, they can go in your SF&F gallery.

:-) Richard Claraval replies: "will do

Your work is incredible. The detail amazing. I really admire pencil and ink drawings. I love computer drawn images also but I really appreciate the time and effort that goes into hand drawn or painted art.

:-) Richard Claraval replies: "Hi Jamie, thanks for the compliments, it always feels good. Melkor and The Shadow of the Past are ink., The smaller Melkor is an etching and the rest are charcoal and pencil. "

Well, whenever the mods decide to post my artwork, you may see it on my page. None of it has been moderated yet. I have put several inquiries in but no one has gotten back to me. 16 I mean, I have FB. lol.

Just making a fly-by visit to your gallery again and can’t help wondering if you’d try out colour sometime.
