watercolour and photoshop
I just found this site and you people are awsome. finally I've found people who thimk this stuff is cool. By the way I'm not sure how to spell it but this picture is resplendent.
Who's Maynard James Keenan?
It's possible that it's just me being kinda obsessed... ;P but when I look at this AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL picture I can't get the impression that he looks a bit like Maynard James Keenan...?
p.s. I already wrote somewhere how I admire all your work! The Silmarillion pics take my breath away! All the situation you catch, that always stood right before my eyes now come alive! Thanx!!
you do all this brethtacking artwork most all for books so my question is why istnt your art on these books covers?you are extrordanary!!!!!!!!!!!
Ok I know you're good but this is just to good. The colours are amazing! Keep up the good work!
Striking - moving, I don't know. tis stupid, but I can barely bear to look into his "eyes". I mean, he's not even real, tis only a drawing, is it ?
...can't find words.
but this one most certainly would. He Is Maglor.
Thanks a lot! This one especially is one of my own favourites, too.
If I had time, I would comment on the beauty of every image in this gallery, but as itt is, I'm still entirely enraptured by this one.
Your use of watercolours astouns me and your representations of the characters from the Silmarillion are absolutely beautiful. The motion, use of colour and composition of every picture is amazing and I have to say I envy your talent Especially when it comes to the hair. I cannot draw nor paint hair to save my life and yours looks so natural.
Thank you for sharing your talent with us and I eargerly look forward to seeing anything else you produce
Probably thinking about the downfall of his people... and wishing he could turn back time....
Maglor, Maglor. *dies* Watercolour too. It is just him standing there. Won't be mistaken for Daeron.
Wonderful work on the clothing, small harp and the vambraces. I'm curious as to his faraway look, though...
I know... and I kind of like it.
That's amazing!!!!!!! I love it
The background is beautiful, his clothes design is great!! and he's beautiful great job!
I love it.
Can I make a criticism, at first glance the fingers of his right hand seem joined/melded.
Beautiful! I rarely leave comments, but I have been keeping up with your stuff and really enjoying it. I love your interpretations of the Silmarillion characters, they are great. I like the green in this particular work and details on the clothes.
I love this picture. The effect of the light playing on his skin is marvelous!
Thanks Bill! =) Ifelt the need to redesign the Silmarillion characters I used to draw ten years ago. They all wore a shirt and some tights and that was it
Would you beleive I had to *force* myself not to put violet in there (apart from the shadows) or even change it to blue-violet completely? I felt I had grown overly fond of that colour
Hey, it's a new color scheme for you! He's beautiful!

Lovely stuff Jenny, the colours are very rich, and there's plenty of nice little details to keep the eyes busy.
