I love your images! You really make the animals come to life. I've featured your work on my Viggo Mortensen/Lord of the Rings site: www.brego.net/lord-of-the-ring…. Thanks for sharing!

Wow. You've  really managed to capture how terrifying they are, even better than in the movie I think! I'm really amazed by all your LOTR art... :wow:

Hello,

I'm really fan of your work, especially your Tolkien's illustrations (my favorite being the one with the Rohirrim). This one is my second prefered picture of yours, I think you don't only draw very well but also give a very original view of the Mûmak (the best I've seen with those of Alan Lee in my opinion, even if your work is more in the "John Howe legacy" with more bright colors and some gothic style) and I would like to use this painting for a project of mine (geeky stuff : me and some friends are rewriting Games Workshop LotR rules according to Tolkien's writing).
Here is where I want to post it if you want to have a look (in French, don't know if you speak it but I saw some pictures you like are made by French, so who knows ? :) ) :

I also made some advertising for your work before on this forum. Of course I'm not selling it or using it to make profit and I'll credit you :)

Thanks in advance, I'm waiting for your authorization :D

As I don't have your answer yet I use it temporarly. Once again the forum is not mine and I don't earn anything by posting it, and it's among a lot of other illustrations, some from DeviantArt, some from Alan Lee, John Howe and Ted Namshit. I don't mind using them without the authorization of the author, as I don't make any profit or benefit and always give a link to the author's website or DA gallery, but I prefer to have it either way, in order to be sure I don't offend anyone and to know what is the best in her/his opinion : her/his website (if she/he has one) or her/his DA gallery.

Работа преисполнена черного юмора. Можно увидеть, что в этом варианте Леголас, вытворявший чудеса акробатики на слоне, сорвался. (Падающая фигурка в зеленом плаще).

Wow! The Mumakils remind me of the prehistoric elephant-ancestors from BBC's "Walking with the Beasts".
