Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
Czech Republic
I am a traditional artist, focusing on landscapes, architecture and fantasy illustrations. I am especially inspired by the works of J.R.R. Tolkien (see Tolkien folder) and I've created many illustrations based on them, but I often paint real-life landscapes and architecture as well. 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.

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.

Frodo's Farewell Feast (Inktober Day 18)
In the evening Frodo gave his farewell feast; it was quite small, just a dinner for himself and his four helpers; but he was troubled and fell in no mood for it. The thought that he would so soon have to part with his young friends weighed on his heart. He wondered how he would break it to them.
The four younger hobbits were, however, in high spirits, and the party soon became very cheerful in spite of Gandalf’s absence. The dining room was bare except for a table and chairs, but the food was good, and there was good wine; Frodo’s wine had not been included in the sale to the Sackville-Bagginses.
“Whatever happens to the rest of my stuff, when the S.-B.s get their claws on it, at any rate I have found a good home for this!” said Frodo, as he drained his glass. It was the last drop of Old Winyards.
J. R. R. Tolkien: The Lord of the Rings, The Fellowship of the Ring. Book I, Chapter III: Three is Company
The prompt for Day 18 was "bottle" and the bottles of Old Winyards was one of the first things that came to my mind.
By the way, I wanted to draw all four of Frodo's companions and this would be a nice opportunity to draw Fatty Bolger and Folco Boffin, but I just couldn't find a way for the composition to work, while keeping it focused on Frodo with the wine. So I'll have to draw them some other time.

Bilbo's Mantelpiece Clock (Inktober Day 14)
Bilbo began to whistle loudly and to forget about the night before. In fact he was just sitting down to a nice little second breakfast in the dining-room by the open window, when in walked Gandalf.
“My dear fellow,” said he, “whenever are you going to come? What about an early start?—and here you are having breakfast, or whatever you call it, at half past ten! They left you the message, because they could not wait.”
“What message?” said poor Mr. Baggins all
in a fluster.
“Great Elephants!” said Gandalf, “you are
not at all yourself this morning—you have never dusted the mantelpiece!”
“What’s that got to do with it? I have had enough to do with washing up for fourteen!”
“If you had dusted the mantelpiece, you
would have found this just under the clock,” said Gandalf, handing Bilbo a note (written, of
course, on his own note-paper).
J. R. R. Tolkien: The Hobbit, Chapter II, Roast Mutton

Bilbo's mantelpiece clock with Thorin's letter just under it.
I really wanted to do this one (even if belatedly), because I had very clear idea what to draw for it.
Perhaps because this is, as far as I know, the only place in Tolkien's works where a clock is mentioned.

The Guarded City (Inktober Day 13)
"And there where the White Mountains of Ered Nimrais came to their end he saw, as Gandalf had promised, the dark mass of Mount Mindolluin, the deep purple shadows of its high glens, and its tall face whitening in the rising day. And upon its out-thrust knee was the Guarded City, with its seven walls of stone so strong and old that it seemed to have been not builded but carven by giants out of the bones of the earth."
J. R. R. Tolkien: The Lord of the Rings,  the Return of the King. Book V, Chapter 1: Minas Tirith

Gorthaur the Cruel (Inktober Day 11)
Day 11 of inktober 2018 – "cruel"
"Sauron, greatest and most terrible of the servants of Morgoth, who in the Sindarin tongue was named Gorthaur, came against Orodreth, the warden of the tower upon Tol Sirion. Sauron was become now a sorcerer of dreadful power, master of shadows and of phantoms, foul in wisdom, cruel in strength, misshaping what he touched, twisting what he ruled, lord of werewolves; his dominion was torment."
J. R. R. Tolkien, The Silmarillion, chapter 18: Of the Ruin of Beleriand and the Fall of Fingolfin
