Eldalonde by neral85 Eldalonde by neral85
Eldalondë the Green was a haven on the western shores of Númenor, at the mouth of the River Nunduinë. It was built in the middle of the coast of Númenor's great western bight, between the arms of the wide Bay of Eldanna, in the region known as Nísimaldar, where the Fragrant Trees grew in high numbers.

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! :-)

Love the classical style architecture in here. :) do you like history and incorporate into your work?

Absolutely! :-) I love to take inspiration from classical architecture, I used various references for my picture. I imagine Númenorian architecture as something similar to ancient Roman or Greek architecture (though perhaps more vertical), with other inspirations such as ancient Egypt or Italian Renaissance.

Also great to talk to someone who feels the same way about these things! :D i feel the same way about Númenorian architecture too. Tolkein probably got a lot of inspiration from the Atlantis myth as well.

It's a shame there aren't more people out there who like history or historical architecture. :( I rarely come across anyone now. I'd like to go to Italy soon perhaps and see some Roman ruins but I also like gothic architecture. Whenever I go to a major city in Britain I make a comment about a gothic cathedral or the classic influences on museums and no one knows what the hell I'm talking about. XD
I also really like the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul but I don't think I really want to go there any time soon. :/

Oh yes, I do love all those masterpieces of architecture – Europe is full of treasures. But it is sad so many people do not care... :-(

Yeah I agree 100%. I've recently been going to a lot of cathedrals. York is an AMAZING place too visit in Britain too.

 I must say that your depiction of Numenorean cities is a real treat; of all the areas of Middle-Earth Numenor might well be the one that fascinates me the most (and I suspect that inspection of my 'Favourites' gallery will tend to prove that!).

Yes, I find Númenor fascinating too, together with Beleriand and all those ancient and amazing places from the legends of the Elder Days... :aww:

  If you have an interest in Numenor then I highly recommend looking through my 'Favourites' gallery since there's quite a lot of images of Numenor and the Numenoreans there, by excellent artists such as Ms. Jubah and Master Oznerol-1516; I would also particularly recommend looking up the Gallery of Mr James Turner Mohan, who seems to have accepted the depiction of The Land of the Star and it's Numenorean residents as a personal mission in life! (and is making a very good job of it as we speak, of that I have no doubt).:) (Smile)
