You cannot pass by Jian Guo
"I am a servant of the Secret Fire, wielder of the flame of Anor. You cannot pass. The dark fire will not avail you, flame of Udûn. Go back to the Shadow! You cannot pass."
—Gandalf to the Balrog.
I finished this oil painting a while ago, but I just haven’t had the chance to take a picture of the final one until now. Traditional work does look best in real life though, or maybe I just don’t know how to take photos properly xD;.
I used a scene of Arwen from LoTR as a reference. She just looked so beautiful in that scene I couldn’t resist and had to try to study her bone structures :)
World of the Ring by Jian Guo
Middle-Earth seems like it’s a pretty happening place: plenty of exotic locales to explore, elves handing out gifts, trees to ride when your footses ache, and treasure available only to those courageous enough to take it. If it ever existed in a Tolkien novel or note, then Jian has probably drawn it: his jaw-droppingly resplendent masterpieces tell just as enthralling a story as the novels they emulate… though in considerably fewer words. The lead image: "A Long Adventure with a Hobbit" is available in print form at Jian’s DeviantArt.
