Brothers - Fire and Ice by neral85
Brothers - Fire and Ice
Noldor, the High Elves, fled from Valinor in pursuit of the Dark Lord Melkor and the Silmarils he had stolen. Two brothers, Fëanor and Fingolfin, sons of Finwë, led the host of the Noldor. There were not enough ships to carry all of the Noldor across the sea to Middle-earth, so Fëanor led the first group. Upon arriving at Losgar, Fëanor decided to burn the ships and leave the followers of Fingolfin behind. Fingolfin and his people saw the smoke of the ships from afar, and chose to travel through the ice desert, for they were ashamed to go back to Valinor, and were angry at Fëanor. Fingolfin took them across the ice of the Helcaraxë, the journey was hard and many died, yet most of them endured and they came to Middle-earth with the firt rifing of the Moon.
Based on The Silmarillion by J. R. R. Tolkien

Just like my earlier pictures Uninvited Guest and Durin's Stone, I made it for a Czech illustrators' website Projekt ilustrace, for January monthly contest "Fire and Ice". Surprisingly, noone chose an illustration from ASoIaF (which would suggest itself) - I was thinking about it, but was not sure what exactly to draw. And then I got this idea and found it really interesting, so I remained faithful to Tolkien. You can look at my picture in the contest here and if you like it, it is possible to vote for it after registration (or for another one, if you like it better:-) ). Alas, the website is only in Czech.
As I've written in an earlier journal, this is the first part of a one-year challenge to take part in each one of the 12 monthly contests. So I'd better start working on the picture for February (topic: "Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde").

------------

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 over the gallery of illustrations. Enjoy! :-)

Becov nad Teplou by neral85
Becov nad Teplou
Bečov nad Teplou is an exceedingly interesting little town in the west of the Czech Republic. It is located in the middle of a landscape park in a green valley of river Teplá, not far from Karlovy Vary (Carlsbad), and it has a charming historical centre with a picturesque square, beautiful Barque church, recently renewed botanical garden and most important of all, a magnificent castle. It is an extensive complex of buildings, remarkable for consisting of a medieval castle, Renaissance palace and Baroque château (all visible in the picture) together with several other lesser parts and surrounding gardens, terraces and fortifications. It's been undergoing a restoration, so it is currently only partly accessible, but still it is certainly worth a visit (apart from the architecture itself, it is also home to the Reliquary of St. Maurus, a priceless Romanesque artifact).

A commissioned piece, made for a lady who works as a tour guide on the castle and wanted to have a picture of it at home too. :-)

Sorry for writing this only in Czech, but it is about an illustration challenge on a Czech website, so I'm afraid it's nothing for those of you, my faithful watchers, who do not understand Czech. ;-)

------------------

Pro ty, kdo mluví česky, chci upozornit na zajímavou výzvu na české stránce Projekt ilustrace. Ten web si mimochodem zaslouží pozornost i sám o sobě, a tak mu rád udělám trochu reklamu. :-) Funguje tak, že každý měsíc je vypsáno téma, na základě něhož je možné během toho měsíce tvořit ilustrace a nahrávat je do galerie (zpracování je naprosto volné, témata jsou různě široká, konkrétní i abstraktní - posuďte sami). Následující měsíc se pak hlasuje o nejlepším díle z předcházejícího měsíce a vítězný obrázek je pak zařazen do výběrové galerie.

Inu, a aktuální výzva nespočívá v ničem jiném než v předsevzetí, během roku 2015 zkusit zpracovat všech 12 měsíčních témat. Zní to náročně? Myslím, že není důvod se toho bát; na kvalitě zas až tak nezáleží, nejde o to vyhrát, ale zúčastnit se, a podstatné je dokopat se k tomu, nějak to příslušné téma zpracovat. Já osobně třeba doufám, že když budu mít před sebou tuto výzvu, donutí mě to víc kreslit, a třeba i věci, které by mě jinak nenapadly.

Omlouvám se, že píšu skoro až na konci ledna, ale i tak na vložení prvního obrázku zbývá pět dní, takže to není tak hrozné. Tak co na to říkáte, půjdete do toho taky? :-)


Jen tak pro zajímavost se můžete podívat na můj profil (no jo, moc obrázků tam zatím nemám, ale to se doufám změní ;-) Ovšem zase jsem dvakrát vyhrál :P ).
