I love this pic, however, there are only a few faults i would like to say (i usually like people to critisize my work so i can learn what i need to improve on)

1)the uruks look kind of like monkeys...but they are still very well painted and detailed.

2)with all the great quality in this painting, it seems as though you just rushed through the mountains.

probably my favorite part of this painting is the way you made helms deep/the statues. i also like the depth in the ram going up the ramp to helms deep's gate.

the only thing you are missing are the ladders =)

hi christiaan - could anyone tell me why i never commented on my favourite piece - so here it goes - christiaan, i really don´t know how one can produce such a piece of art, it must have taken ages to finish it - this is more than excellent, and i don´t have the words to describe what i feel when i look at it - just, thank you so much for creating such an outstanding piece of fantasy art - if you have prints of it to sell, pleeeeeze let me know - i want one!!!!!!! again - thanks for creating this masterpiece!

Wow yet another awesome painting; keep up the good work mate

it was all painted by hand; thanks for the comment

Guest's picture

May i just ask did you paint it only for hand or did you use the comp.

It looks so darn good Laughing out loud

Guest's picture

wow, this really is great. I think you put a better view on helms deep than in the movie. you make it so massive. Congrats, fully!

Guest's picture

This is beautiful. Just as I imagined it while reading. Really, the films did a good job portraying the fortress, but your image shows the splendor of Helm's Deep, of the coming of the orcs and how they fought with Theoden and his men.

The statues and carvings on the arcs are beautiful. So intricate, yet vague, but showing the beauty of the Rohirrim's workmanship and art.

I'm awed by the details and the colors... A pity the picture on this site is so small; there's just so much to look at!

Guest's picture

I am very impressed. The blue mountain range, the colors.... very beautiful. I love how there is a fireball flying through the night sky.

Guest's picture

I actually think it looks better than the one in the movie.

Amazing...very well done. I have always thought of it as just a plain huge wall but the way you painted it is much better and more creative. Well done. How did youdo it? Just amazing.

there is on elfwood or on my home page, and ya i hate resizing too.

vuollet's picture

A1 huh? Lots of patience you have... Mmmm. There sure is a lot of warriors there Cool Kinda reminds me of quake III somehow. Yep, I don't like the way epilogue resizes the pictures so small 8( Is there a bigger and more detailed version available anywhere?
