Nick Keller (of Weta Workshop) Hobbit Conceptual Art Can't Post

Don't know if this has been posted, but this guy has created some seriously impressive stuff.

There's not one of these I wouldn't love to have framed on my wall.


Nick Keller currently works as a senior concept artist at Weta Workshop in Wellington, New Zealand.

Since 2006, He has worked on a number of film projects including ‘The Chronicles of Narnia’, ‘Under the Mountain’, ‘Avatar’, ‘Indiana Jones 4’, and most recently ‘The Hobbit’ trilogy.

He spends his days at Weta working digitally in Photoshop and in his spare time enjoys painting with traditional media, creating fantastical and surreal imagery, mainly in oils. Such projects include collaborations with a variety of bands illustrating album artwork.

Nick has contributed to Volumes I and II of ‘White Cloud Worlds’, a collection of science fiction and fantasy artwork from New Zealand. His recent film work can also be seen in ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Chronicles: Art and Design’ and ‘Chronicles: Creatures & Characters’

The Thorin one is particularly badass:
