Elena, How can I buy a copy of Summer in Doriath? I do not find it in the Deviantart shop.

Oh... This is my favorite art for these two so far :3
I wish Tolkien had wrote more about the beginning of their tale... Something like it must make a rather sensual, poetic, moving and majestic story...

This is really so lovely and detailed! From the silver in Thingol's hair to the ornaments in their clothes, it all fits together so well and has such a soft and elegant feel to it. Great job!

It may be a stupid question, but are you an official illustrator of Tolkien's books? I mean, do you cooperate with any publishing house? :)

(sorry for my english).

Thank you, dear friend!
I'd be totally glad if my works could be included in Tolkien's books. I've been offering my illustrations to a couple of British publishers and I think of offering them to Russian and American publishers this year.

I have no doubts that some publishers will see your talent and ingenuity. When that day comes, please let me know, I'd love to have a copy of The Sillmarillion or HoME illustrated by you ;)

I must tell you that I am a tolkienist and I really admire your work; it is an accurate reflection of all my imaginations and expectations caused by reading Tolkien. I find characters portrayed by you as full of pure beauty, wisdom and dignity. Thank you for your work!

A lot of people have said this, but this is just beautiful. I love how both of their expressions are displayed and I also love the detail in Melian's hair. I've also noticed a hint of white in Elwe's hair and I love how it gives that subtle highlight to the image. Great job once again! :D
