I'm a big Tolkien fan. Here's an image inspired by The Silmarillion. You can find a tutorial of sorts outlining broadly how I made this painting here [link] and here [link]

I've recently read The Simarillion, and I have to say it is my favorite Middle Earth story. Probably my favorite story by Tolkein.

A hauntingly beautiful image. The lighting is superb and the environment is so lush I can almost smell it.
I should give this book another attempt.....

Great atmosphere of tranquility and majesty created here by lighting and shading as well as by calm, ghost-like figures.
