Rohan by peet Rohan by peet
'The ridge upon which the companions stood went down steeply before their feet. Below it twenty fathoms or more, there was a wide and rugged shelf which ended suddenly in the brink of a sheer cliff: the East Wall of Rohan. So ended the Emyn muil, and the green plains of the Rohirrim stretched away before them to the edge of sight.'

JRR Tolkien: The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers: Book III, Chapter 2: The Riders of Rohan

That's an interesting perspective, and one that I haven't recognised myself. I like it though :D

I already commented this one on Elfwood, more than two years ago, but I need to do it now again. I'm just reading the chapter again, for I don't know how many times, and I had this image in mind again. Because you depicted it really just like I imagined it: the blue sky with the white clouds running above, the sudden breeze on the top of the hills... even the angle from which you portrayed the characters! Of course, there are some details that I imagined a different way, but those don't matter. You captured the feeling.

(And, BTW, if you were interested, here's my old, ooold sketch of Aragorn, the very first picture of him I ever made, probably eight or nine years ago. [link] So you can hopefully see what I meant in the above paragraph. I could do him better now, but I don't have to: you did it before me, and better than I ever could.)
