Oh... This is my favorite art for these two so far :3
I wish Tolkien had wrote more about the beginning of their tale... Something like it must make a rather sensual, poetic, moving and majestic story...

Thank you!^^
But I think, that's very good, that Professor reserves the place for imagination ;)

This is really so lovely and detailed! From the silver in Thingol's hair to the ornaments in their clothes, it all fits together so well and has such a soft and elegant feel to it. Great job!

It may be a stupid question, but are you an official illustrator of Tolkien's books? I mean, do you cooperate with any publishing house? :)

(sorry for my english).

Thank you, dear friend!
I'd be totally glad if my works could be included in Tolkien's books. I've been offering my illustrations to a couple of British publishers and I think of offering them to Russian and American publishers this year.

I have no doubts that some publishers will see your talent and ingenuity. When that day comes, please let me know, I'd love to have a copy of The Sillmarillion or HoME illustrated by you ;)

I must tell you that I am a tolkienist and I really admire your work; it is an accurate reflection of all my imaginations and expectations caused by reading Tolkien. I find characters portrayed by you as full of pure beauty, wisdom and dignity. Thank you for your work!
