Amazing piece! I love beleg's armor, the way he is holding the bow and arrow and the way you painted maille and shiny metal.
I also love this forest, looks like an autumn cold morning. Keep up the good work!

Как замечательно! Обожаю Ваши картины! А ещё Белег у Вас такой одухотворённый, задумчивый и печальный...мне кажется, будто он знает, что с ним будет...и давно смирился, приняв судьбу друга на себя...Великолепная работа.Очень красиво!

I really like the look of the Dragonhelm on Turin. Also like how they're getting ready to mostly like attack the beast in the corner. Awesome job.

Oh my goodness the dragonhelm design! It's perfect! I'm trying to resist the temptation to add every single piece you've ever painted to my favorites because they are all flawless. No one gets as close to the Silmarillion visually as you do, honestly. When I see your paintings it's like I'm reading Tolkien's writing all over again, and that's the highest praise I can give.

Еще одна чудесная работа! Такая атмосферная - очень красиво льется свет сквозь деревья на землю. 
А еще мне на мгновение показалось, что Белег в правой руке держит сотовый-))
И кто, кстати, за ними стоит, с золотыми волосами?

Each time I wonder: can your art get any more awesome from here? And once again the answer only can be "yes" 
If I had to name three Artists how paint the Tolkien Universe, you'd be among them!
I love your choice of colours, the character design and the way you use light in your paintings!
