This is fantastic. I appreciate the courage you bring to your illustrations of Tolkien. You're not afraid to bring a point of view to Tolkien's world. Beautiful.

That's very kind of you to say. Thank you! I think it helps to begin drawing Tolkien before the films. As great as they are, it's tough to have one's own vision of Middle-earth as the Rings films permeate everything. Thanks again! This is one of my favorites from that series of Vala.

:D I love creative, different visualizations of the Valar - and this one is fantastic. Orome is wild and untamed - fierce and frightening, as well he should be. And yet, I'm sure were he to relax and smile, he would seem almost jovial.

Thanks! I love the Valar as subject matter for the same reason - Seeing so many different interpretations is a real treat. Thanks for the kind words!

Thanks! I loved reading of them in the Silmarillion, and was sad to see very few illustrations of them.

Man, this is. Awesome. ._.

I still haven't read The Silmarillion, though. But after seeing this piece of niceness, it has just jumped up on my to-do list.

Thanks! That is one of my favorites from the Tolkien work. Hearing that seeing this makes you put it up on your list of to-reads is huge. That's something every artist aspires to hear :)

The Sil is a heafty read. It's told differently than LOTR or the Hobbit - less story-centric and more like a History of the Elves of Middle-earth. It's a lot to take in and is tough to follow the first read-through (at least for me). It is good, but there are hundreds of little stories. So much so there is a series called the HOME series (History of Middle-earth) that expands upon many of the stories in the Silmarillion.

I've started reading it once or twice in a local book shop, and I liked the feel it has.
But life's been really rushy these days, so I haven't had the time to read it proper, so I still haven't bought it xD

I'm aware of the series. There are actually a whole bunch of other books, aren't there? Children of Hurin, Unfinished Tales, Bilbo's Last Song...

I haven't even seen all of them yet, but I wish I do, sometime soon.

Actually, Christopher Tolkien is doing a pretty awesome job, keeping his father's legacy going on...

Yeah there are many others. Children of Hurin is probably the best of them, and the most recent. They are all quite immersive.
