Czech Republic
I am a traditional artist and illustrator. I live in the beautiful city of Prague, Czech Republic, with my wife and two children.
I work mainly as a freelance graphic and web designer (making websites, posters and print publications), but I am also a self-taught traditional artist, I take commissions and sell my pictures online in my Etsy shop.
As an artist, I focus on landscapes, architecture and fantasy illustrations. My great love and inspiration is the world of J. R. R. Tolkien (see Tolkien folder) and I've created many illustrations based on his books. But I am also inspired by other fantasy worlds as well as real-life landscapes and architecture. My speciality is decorative border designs, taking inspiration from various historical art styles. I have often used my traditional art in my graphic design projects, too.

I have a personal website www.matejcadil.cz and a site called Angrenost about the world of J. R. R. Tolkien (in Czech) with my illustrations.

Osgiliath
Osgiliath was the old capital city of Gondor. The city straddled the Anduin River at a point approximately half way between the cities of Minas Anor (later Minas Tirith) to the south-west and Minas Ithil (Minas Morgul) to the north-east. In its days of glory, the city featured quays to handle sea-going vessels that came up from the sea, a great stone bridge supporting houses and towers of stone, and the Dome of Stars, which housed the Osgiliath-stone, the greatest of the seven Palantíri.
The beginning of the city's decline came during the Kin-strife, when it was sacked and burned in T.A. 1437 after a siege by the rebel Castamir's forces. The Great Plague of T.A. 1636 led to further depopulation and the capital was moved to the more secure Minas Anor in T.A. 1640. As Gondor endured many military defeats east of the Anduin during the following centuries, especially the fall of Minas Ithil in T.A. 2002, Osgiliath became vulnerable to attack and its population continued to shrink until it was finally abandoned in T.A. 2475 when it was captured temporarily by Uruk-hai. In later years Gondor maintained only a military garrison in the western half of the ruined city.
Only after the War of the Ring the city was rebuilt, although the capital of king Elessar remained in Minas Tirith.

pen, watercolour, coloured pencils

So this illustration shows Osgiliath during its days of glory (before the Kin-strife), with the great bridge and the Dome of Stars. In the background you can see mount Mindolluin and the city of Minas Anor.

Art vs Artist 2019
Yay, it's time for another Art vs Artist! 🖼️👨‍🎨🖼️ This thing apparently never gets old, so here is a bit of bandwagon-jumping from me, with some of my art from the last year.🎨
As I rarely do character portraits, I cannot ask whether the art resembles the artist, but still, you can judge whether you see some connection.🙂

The previous versions I made:

I’ve just put a fave for your latest picture! It really looks gorgeous! And I’m also every, very eager for you to put a watch for me very soon, so that you can get to put faves for more artwork about the Keiko Anthology featuring the Sorceress of Leaf and Sand as well as he many lands she ventures to! Besides, I have long been waiting and waiting for you to put a watch for me after all these weeks and weeks, after I put a watch for you in November of last year...so that I can feel very happy enough to show more of the beautiful pictures that I will make, just for the start of the Month of March.

Look, MatejCadil,
There is something special for you to put a fave one! And that is a picture that is a reworked picture of the same one that you put a face on more than two months ago...and once you do so you should as least put a watch on me so that you can get to see more of the artwork that I can show you.

You should need to favor some of my artwork even more...and I thank you for the faves you gave for Keiko Rising upon a Jumping Steed and the Keillor Anthology Concept Art, too. Besides I really, really, really want you to become a watcher of my artwork so that I can show you even more beautiful pictures of the Sorceress of Leaf and Sand for you to put faves or even comments on!

So make sure you try to put a watch on my artwork, for I myself have favorited a lot of yours for their rich and splendidly gorgeous detail of fantasy worlds and traditional landscapes, and I am also hoping to use some influence from them for my own artwork as well!

That you exist, create, live, and ponder works of such beauty are all superb and telling reasons to rejoice.  That you have the courage to risk thoughtless, cruel and even vicious remarks in return are reasons to respect you. That you use your own priceless perspective to produce marvels uniquely yours is a reason to regard you with gratitude and awe.  That you have mastered the requisite techniques of art and technology to transmit the results of your thought and patient labor are causes and solid grounds for praise. Taken all together, they combine into a sound and complete justification for an earnest, merry, and utterly sincere tendering of the best of all wishes for you to have THE HAPPIEST OF BIRTHDAYS!
