Evenstar fading by alicexz Evenstar fading by alicexz
Some veeery rough speedpainting practice, took about two hours in PS. Referenced this still from The Lord of the Rings films, a beautiful image that is inexplicably not in the movies at all, not even the extended editions (only appears in a trailer, I think.)

This is awesome! I think it's already been mentioned but I somehow remember seeing this in one of the extended editions somewhere.

Your works are so amazing, especially the way you play with colour and form. It seems that, with just a few simple lines and dots you create those beautiful images that are so vibrant and eyecatching. You are, by far, one of the best artists I've seen around deviantArt, and I've seen quite many of them.

This is ridiculous. Ridiculously good, that is. It's so flawless - everything's so defined and yet not, and so clear and yet not. I'm rambling ... Brilliant work :)

Great piece!

First,.... HOW ON EARTH DID YOU FIND THIS?!! Second, Middle-earth too?! How awesome can you get?! Third, Well done. I like this a lot. It certainly has a feel of an older form of art... perhaps among the 'Impressionists' or something. I am not an artist, but a writer myself. I am going on memory alone with that remark.

I did look up the still and you did capture it well, in my opinion. I can even imagine this being placed in some gallery in Gondor many years after Legolas and Gimli leave Middle-earth, the last of the Fellowship to do so. So yes, this looks like elven art for sure. It even looks all 'wispy' like that painting of the defeat of Sarumon that IS featured in the film. As I wrote, I enjoy this very much. :D

I recognized this the moment I saw it! I'd say it looks even better than the actual still. The colors look more unified and I love the lighting!
