I suggested "Orthanc - Pinnacle of Isengard" [In reply to] Can't Post

Referring to it as Isengard at the pinnacle of it's beauty and most definitive form before it's corruption... Gave a good long speech and all I did, but never mind...

Congrats to the two Chrises and Tom...

QuackingTroll,

As one of the runner-ups--thanks!!! I've seen this piece at comic-con, and even as a owner of an original SS/Weta Orthanc, I'm super excited for this new one. It's really quite beautiful to behold!!

BTW, your profile lists you an an animator--what kind of work have you done?

--Chris Endicott
