The popular Draw this again meme! Here you can see and judge the improvement of past 10 years...
The left picture is one of my first Tolkien-themed pictures ever, called Nanduhirion. It is not on dA, but you can find it on my website Angrenost.cz
. This has always been one of my favourite scenes from the book so I chose to draw it. But I was quite afraid of drawing people, so I drew only the vale. It is in oil pastels.
And the right picture is my recent addition to gallery, Durin's Stone
. There was an illustration contest The Fellowship of the Ring
last month and I wasn't able to choose a particular scene to draw for a long time, because I'm still much worse in drawing characters than landscapes, so I wanted a scene with landscape playing prominent role. And finally I remembered this one and I knew I must definitely draw it again...
This time I used coloured pencils.
So what do you think?
