There is a powerful sense of movement in this painting. It's not only because the horse and rider are in an action pose. It's due to the treatment of the composition itself. The tree is already falling behind. The cloak and tail are trailing in the created breeze. There is a sense of urgency in the darkening sky. The tree seems to lean forward trying to catch the rider off of his mount.

I see the animal being held back a little as well with those tight reins. Is he trying to turn or is something below the next rise that he doesn't want to run headlong in to?

The colors are fantastic. The muscles on the horse are accurate and show the movement well. I love the tiny details like the cloak in tatters and the bushes in the for-ground. Nothing was an afterthought in this painting. It's simply stunning!

I absolutely LOVE this picture!
Especially what Aragorns face looks like. In your interpretation he's not a perfect-looking model like in the movies, he's just a ranger with a rough look. When I see this picture of Aragorn, I totally understand that those people in Bree were a bit afraid of him.

They should REALLY ask you to draw the next cover for the Green Rider series, your style would be PERFECT. °_°

brilliant, love how subtly you've hinted at the reflection on the sword, but it is still very powerful. The horse's anatomy is fantastic, and your shading makes the muscle structure very three dimensional

piękna kolorystyka! i ta dumna pozycja konia. W jego oczach widać siłę charakteru, nieustępliwość, nawet upartość, ale swoją reakcją jest całkowicie poddany Panu, jakby oddawał mu cały swój charakter na usługi. Również bardzo mi się podoba sam Aragorn, pełen pewności siebie i gotowości na wszystko.

I love this. While Viggo Mortenson's portrayal of Aragorn was fantastic, he never quite matched the mental image I had for him. This definitely comes much closer.
