I dont know how you did it, but you somehow managed to capture the exact lighting and color scheme i had always envisioned rohan as having (light yellow fields some how existing Under deep, dark clouds) an the composition is terrific. beautiful work

This painting had quite a startling resemblance to a recent work of mine, [link] I do see that yours is older, though ;P
A very interesting idea for the cover of the second novel, as people would much rather expect to see the members of the fellowship and not a rider of Rohan (even though they play a pretty big role in this part). Quite original indeed :clap:

Love this too - what a dark a brooding sky! The composition is just perfect. I do love breaking the borders like that :)
DappleHack's avatar
Thank you! :)
I'm FOND of this "borderbreaking" - this medieval tradition occupies me totally :)

Wow, this is superb! I just love how you did the sky. Amazing details on the horseman's and the horse's heads considering it was done in watercolor (it is watercolor?).
DappleHack's avatar
Thank you! :)
Yes, this is watercolour (now that you asked I realise that I forgot to mention it in the describtion ^^;)
Tannalein's avatar
Yeah, I saw later you use watercolor in the description of your other LOTR covers and pieces... Your whole gallery is simply amazing.

Oh, this is excellent. Not only is it a beautiful watercolour, but this just *screams* Rohan to me. :D

It's a double pleasure to hear that from you - your horse pictures are just beautiful!!!

Thank you, but I could never draw such pictures you do. :) Your Tolkien illustrations are lovely.
