Atanatar II Alcarin of Gondor by neral85
Atanatar II Alcarin of Gondor
Atanatar II
enenqua aran Ondonóreo

Atanatar II was the sixteenth king of Gondor. His father Hyarmendacil I had been one of Gondor's greatest Kings, so Atanatar II inherited a powerful empire stretching from the Greyflood to the Sea of Rhûn, and to which even the Men of Umbar and Harad paid homage. The King loved luxury and it was during his reign that the original Crown of Gondor was replaced by a jeweled helm. "Men said precious stones were pebbles in Gondor for children to play with." The wealth and splendour of Atanatar's realm earned him the title Alcarin ('Glorious') but he did little to maintain its strength, and nothing to expand its influence. Thus already during Atanatar's reign, Gondor began to stagnate. Atanatar II ruled Gondor for seventy-seven years, during which the wealth and power created by his father slowly began to wane. He was succeeded by his eldest son Narmacil I.


It's been a long time since my previous entry in the kings of Gondor series, but I've always wanted to continue, so at last here comes the most glorious of gondorian kings. For obvious reasons, I made the border extremely richly decorated, as compared to his predecessors (perhaps even deliberately over-decorated). The overall colouring and style is reminiscent of his namesake and ancestor Atanatar I and also inspired by gemstones and pearls, symbolizing Atanatar's wealth. As for the picture itself, Atanatar is the first king in my series who is shown sitting – to represent his indolence. Also mark the new crown of Gondor.

For my portraits of earlier kings of Gondor, see the Early Kings of Gondor and the Ship-kings of Gondor
Aside from being part of that series, this picture was made specifically for the NEVER SEEN BEFORE contest. There has apparently been no original picture of this very interesting (though not admirable) gondorian king anywhere online.

If you like my Tolkien-related art, look at my related journal or gallery folder.
But you can find even more of my pictures on my website Angrenost.cz. It's in Czech, but you can still look at the gallery of illustrations. Enjoy! :-)

Sareni Pasovi by neral85
Sareni Pasovi
ballpoint pen, soft pastels and coloured pencils

Šareni pasovi ("Colourful layers") is an impressive mountain in Durmitor range, Montenegro. It's certainly worth to see it in real life, as I did a few years ago.

Third picture for the 12-month challenge of Projekt ilustrace  (after Brothers - Fire and Ice and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde – Dark Mirror). The March theme was wrinkles. As you can see, I didn't interpret it completely literally, though the connection is quite clear. In fact, almost as soon as I read what the theme was, I knew I would draw this particular scenery, which had really enthralled me.

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde - Dark Mirror by neral85
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde - Dark Mirror
pencil and charcoal

Just like my previous picture Brothers - Fire and Ice (as well as some older ones), this was made for a monthly contest on a Czech illustrators' website Projekt ilustrace, the topic was unsurprisingly "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde". It is not a literal illustration of any given moment from the book, but I hope it illustrates the story well enough.

Two illustrations from the 12-month challenge done so far, and now onwards to March! :dance:
I love this project and especially this challenge, because it has already made me to draw some things that I would probably otherwise never think about drawing. :-)
