I would like to use this art as the illustration for a fake Magic card of mine. I won't be making any money, I just want the card to have great art. Is this request viable?

As others have already said, this is a different interpretation of Fangorn, but much closer to Tolkien's "old man of the forest"-type Ent. Wonderful job, you have great talent and an eye for detail. This ranks with that of the great Tolkien artists- Hildebrandt, Howe, Nasmith. I say again: Wonderful.

-as an aside, directed to the nameless guests of 2004-06-23 and 2004-01-22, Fangorn *is* the name of the Ent, as well as the Forest.

i love how you've captured this, he looks beautiful and majestic- exactly what treebeard is! Smile

Guest's picture

yeah,being a tolkien enthusiast i have to correct you.the ents name is Treebeard and he lives in the forest of Fangorn.nice picture tho!!

Guest's picture

Very well drawn, but Fanorn is the name
of the FOREST, not the Ent!

Beautiful! It's amazing to see how other artists interpret the same scene so differently! Even though I personally didn't picture Treebeard this way, I think it fits Tolkein's description perfectly. He looks kind, yet troubled, and very slow-natured. I've seen a lot of Treebeards that look so quick-tempered and angry, and I don't think that fits his persona at all! Yours is wonderful!

I love it! The colors are wonderful and the image you have created is outstanding! I really like the long thin old look of this one.

Guest's picture

Love the details and colors.
I am fascinated by his extraordinary long fingers.
Great piece.

I don't know what a ent is, but I think this is a beautiful picture and a great piece of digital art.

interesting concept... I always imagined Treebeard to be huge and strong, which he should be to carry 2 fat hobbits thousands of Ent-strides, right? in any case, it's a wonderful piece, though I still don't think it fits the character very well... keep up the good work!
