im sure this has been said in ur previous comments terry but i absolutely love the stairs and how the water goes down into the lake at the bottom; thats just wonderful perspective and a beautiful backdrop to treebeard

This was originaly drawn many moons ago, but I did complete the painting just before the Two Towers came out. For the passed three years It`s always been a race against time to get my version in before the movie...I`d planned to do a picture of Gandalf and his fireworks, and I was going to use a dragon, just as they did in the film...but if I did it now I`d be accused of copying & fan art so I don`t know what to do?..

Did you draw this before or after you saw the movie? Well, at least I'm guessing you saw the movie.....

How cute! The colors are magnificent: very warm and adventuruos! I lvoe trees and that tree is just oh so cute, as well as the people sitting on the branch. The steps are very lovely and detailed as well.

Thanks John!..thats a nice thought, gracing Tolkiens books. I`m still pondering about producing prints commercialy, I`ve got a new mother board and 19" monitor, the few files I had setup for prints, all the prints turned out darker a with more contrast...how about you John, you have a great printer, when are you going to start producing commercial prints....I sure they would sell well...

I love your art Terry, it has that magical feel about it and i could see your stuff gracing Tolkien books along with the best.. (When are you going to do damn prints??)

Art at its best.
