The White Rider by peet The White Rider by peet
'The old man was too quick for him. He sprang to his feet and leaped to the top of a large rock. There he stood, grown suddenly tall, towering above them. His hood and his grey rags were flung away. His white garments shone. He lifted up his staff, and Gimli's axe leaped from his grasp and fell ringing on the ground. The sword of Aragorn, stiff in his motionless hand, blazed with a sudden fire. Legolas gave a great shout and shot an arrow high into the air: it vanished in a flash of flame.
'Mithrandir!' he cried. 'Mithrandir!''

JRR Tolkien: The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers: Book III, Chapter 5: The White Rider

Beautiful! I love all the trees and how they kind of impede the view - making it seem as if you are watching this yourself. Great job!

That was more or less the intention, so I'm glad you've noted it. Thanks so much for commenting.

The atmosphere on this one look really different compared to the other painting I saw (I'm going through your gallery at this exact moment), may be it's due to the light, really realistic. Also, except for a few paintings of yours (including Legolas shooting at the Fell Beast for example), I always feel with your work like it could be a little better, or something could be improved. Here I'll change nothing :D

My favorite points : as always the trees and roots, Legolas's cape and Gimli (really 'Tolkienish' for me cause really thin).

Let's continue to watch this gallery ;) (and pardon my english, not my native language)
