Illumination of the Ring Poem from Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, in a composite medeival style that I thought felt better for Middle Earth (It's a combination of early Celtic and 14th century elements, largely). Egg and gum paint, shellac-based india ink, and tea on Bristol plate.

Nice work. It is sure that it is not all the day we see this kind of work !!

I love the way you worked the rings into the knotwork. Great idea, came out wonderful. ^_^

Really lovely work, so manuscript-ish. Wouldn't be great if everything written today had this cool feel to it.

Whoa! Fantastic idea! (Maybe I find it fantastic because I actually wanted to do that kinda thing myself. It never happened...)You have done a really nice job with that one.
Keep up the great work!

You know what I just realized... Even though it says Human men doomed to die, We're the guys that are still here.
Dang It!!

Beautiful. I especially like that you put all twenty rings around the border, yes I checked. **blushes** I can't believe I'm such a weirdo!

Wow. Since I have nothing constructive to say, I am just going to sit here and gawk. Ubercool!
