Cover I made for the magazine of the Dutch Tolkien Society 'Unquendor'. The subject was free, so I picked one I've been wanting to do for a long time.

Eorl the Young, by J.R.R. Tolkien.

Horse anatomy is challenging. I think your horse in the foreground looks very lively. I love the way you used the dark green in the background to contrast with the lovely pale shades in the horse's hide. Also, the back lighting on the horses legs actually gives the horse an increased liveliness. The noble head of the horse seems very intelligent in expression. Your figure on the horse has a lively baring too. His actions are the "verb" of your illustration and everything else happening in the distance below is in response. Great anticipation, great activity... a wonderful illustration. I am glad you were able to pick a subject you had in mind. Nice work. Very Engaging!

It looks awesome, like Eorl is rallying his Riders somewhere in the Wold.

Thanks, indeed he is. I imagined him more up north, but the Wold will do fine yes ;)

Beautiful picture, especially Eorl's outfit and the design. I also like the ground with the white flowers - simbelmyne, perchance?

Simbelmyne indeed! Very perceptive :)

Thanks
