You seem to know quite a bit about Tolkien's work, yet when you paint LotR themes you allow the movies to influence your art. The Argonath is Isildur and Anárion as per the books. Not Isildur and his father Elendil (movies).

The description is quite clear:

 "Upon great pedestals founded in the deep waters stood two kings of stone: stilled with browed eyes and crannied brows they frowned upon the north. The left hand of each was raised palm outwards in a gesture of warning; in each right hand there was an axe; upon each head there was a crumbling helm and crown."

Plus I note in a lot of your work you use the laser beam disembodied movie eye for Sauron. I always thought that was the stupidest thing in the movies.

Love your work and it would be even better if you stuck to the original as you do in your other Tolkien works.

Would you possibly sell the download of this file instead of buying a print on canvas? We'd like to get a fracture of it,  but you only have it available as canvas prints and the regular stuff.  Message me back when you have the time. Thanks :3

This is absolutely beautiful work and I love the details and the storytelling present. I work at a frame store and recently I had someone come in with this print to get it framed. I thought I'd pass that on and let you know how much they loved it, and how wonderful it was to see this in person. This is brilliant work.
