Matěj Čadil
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.

The Eagles of the Lords of the West
And out of the west there would come at times a great cloud in the evening, shaped as it were an eagle, with pinions spread to the north and the south; and slowly it would loom up, blotting out the sunset, and then uttermost night would fall upon Númenor. And some of the eagles bore lightning beneath their wings, and thunder echoed between sea and cloud.
Then men grew afraid. “Behold the Eagles of the Lords of the West!” they cried. “The Eagles of Manwë are come upon Númenor!” And they fell upon their faces.
Then some few would repent for a season, but others hardened their hearts, and they shook their fists at heaven, saying: “The Lords of the West have plotted against us. They strike first. The next blow shall be ours!” These words the King himself spoke, but they were devised by Sauron.
J. R. R. Tolkien: The Silmarillion: Akallabêth – The Downfall of Númenor

I concieved this picture for the inktober 2018 Day 27 prompt "thunder", but I had so busy end of October that I couldn't make it in time. Still I really liked the idea, so I finished it at least belatedly.
I love this vivid imagery in Tolkien's description, the end days of Númenor feel really apocalyptic. There is a similar picture by Ted Nasmith which might have inspired me, so the concept of this picture is not quite new, but I tried to do it in my own way.
Coincidentally it is also quite similar concept and technique to my previous picture The Realm of Sauron is Ended (Inktober Day 26) (though the meaning of the scene is in fact rather opposite). :-)

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!
