Through the ancient valley by *Blinck The Suggester said: "The sense of scale is simply amazing, as though you've already been swallowed up by this very world. You can tell there's adventure ahead, but there's also a lingering sense of danger. Full view is a must.".

Through the ancient valley


2014 EDIT: Refined some things for a new PRINT, which you can get HERE -…


Here's a new piece, showing a girl starting a journey through an old valley. Definitely got some inspiration from LOTR :)
Decided to upload it on a higher res so that you can get a better feeling for the scale, which I wanted to be pretty epic!

I really hope you like it! :)
Tell me what you think!

the minute I saw this, I thought of the Argonath. It doesn't match Tolkien's conception, but doesn't try to. (As you wrote, 'inspired by'.)

I saw this picture years ago, and I'm very happy to see it again. This picture make you feel like you are there, looking upwards to the steep cliff sides and magnificent statues. 'Majestic' is the best word to describe this.

Though the statues resemble the Argonath, it has a different touch, the area looks really pacific, but the two elven statues tell otherwise. This is remarkable. I'm running out of compliments for your amazing deviations XD

Very beautiful, may I ask how long did it take you to finish the initial art?

This was made a long time ago so I can't really be sure... At that time it must have taken me around between 15 and 20 hours. Would take about half that time now I think!
Cheers :)
