The final image [In reply to] Can't Post

stands out as being quite a departure from Tolkien's other works. As Daughter of Nienna says it is very graphic, reminds me of a woodblock print. I like it very much, the colors, lines, stylization and light are all appealing and well done. This would appear the end of the barrel journey as the sun is just rising, peeking out from the lower left sky.
The first image seemed to be heading in the direction of the later work. It's not as well done, though. The lines of the water are poorly done and the foreground tree just looks wrong, neither realistic nor stylized. The center drawing is interesting in how it shows how he worked through his design to his final work.

At the light that radiates down
Will it travel forth to you
Far across this shimmering sea?"
