The tree by KainTheVampireLord The tree by KainTheVampireLord
Acrylics on cardboard, about A3 size

A sort of random image in that meaning I didn't worked a lot with designing it, just let the painting shape itself. Weird, but this tree got inspired mostly by the Old Forest in Fellowship of the Ring where trees moved when nobody seen and stalked the careless wanderers, and thought to depict a human-eating tree as something far more evil and surreal.

I'll change it for a better quality image as soon as I can, photos are a grainy monochrome horridness when they're taken in cloudy weather, this post is a scan, and can't help about the reflecting paint

It's funny how LOTR inspired you to draw something dark and twisted. Actually the first thing that I was going to say before I read the description was, "It looks like an evil Huorn." Looks like my first impression was correct.

So true, horror is the last thing people can imagine in connection with LOTR, I liked the old forest at the very beginning of the book and the old tree that sort of "ate" the hobbits, it wasn't hard to imagine a tree that's literally a man-eater evil creature.

That's true, and to be fair there is some pretty creepy stuff in Tolkien, like the Barrow Wights and some of the Mordor creatures.

Yes, Shelob's lair could be depicted quite horroristic and also the Dead Marshes.

Nagyon tetszik, őszintén szólva valahogyan így képzeltem el a Gyűrűk Urában az emberevő fákat! :D És nem, Isten ments hogy ilyennek csak a közelébe is mennék...nyammogjon csak szépen jó messze tőlem. :XD:

Köszi :)
Na akkor eléggé hasonlóan képzeltük el a dolgokat. a hobbitok meg pont egy ilyen tövében ültek le piknikezni. Jó mondjuk sokkal gonoszabbnak képzeltem el, mint ahogy a könyvben le volt írva, Tolkien fái inkább csak az alapötletet adták :)
