Finally finished Minas Tirith Can't Post

I started this painting last July and I didn't finish it until last month. I wrote the lyrics to Aragorn's coronation song along the edges, but I couldn't get a good picture. It was difficult to start, but it turned out to be wonderful practice and I'm happy with the way it turned out.

I only notice one thing... [In reply to] Can't Post

There appears to be snow at city-level on Mt Mindolluin but none in the city? Other'n that it's VERY nice indeed!

I see what you mean... [In reply to] Can't Post

The reference photo I used was like that and I didn't notice until you mentioned it. Good eyes! Maybe the sun melted the snow that was on Minas Tirith (?).

But it IS a magnificent piece of work. Far better than anything my hands have wrought in any visual medium. Smile Thank you for sharing it.

Holy anachronism, Oiotari! [In reply to] Can't Post

So THAT'S what the Nazgul did after the Fall! Channeled all those ELECTRONS (negative energy, donchaknow?) to run hairdryers for MT! BRILLIANT! Laugh

I'm going to assume that [In reply to] Can't Post

the anachronism you are referring to is the sun moving, which is utterly absurd
on the other hand we all know that hair driers were common household items in Gondor, though they had not yet made their way to Rohan

Lol, it's a special kind of snow [In reply to] Can't Post

It only falls where it will look pretty. Either that or the Gondorians are more advanced than we thought and they invented snow plows. Smile
