Inspired by The Silmarillion by Tolkien
This motion picture was inspired by those medieval hunting miniatures. Limbourgh brothers have their inspirational share here as well =)
Off course, I don't believe the Elves 'been hunting this way, so it's my point of view =)
vatercolours and gouashe on paper,  50x100cm

My dear friends,
thank you very much for the nomination! <3
I'm truly happy, as it was the most challenging painting to produce within 7 years! :D

Every inch of The Years of Youth by ekukanova is a majestic display of dynamics and wonderful detail, all composed with wisely chosen colours. ( Suggested by cloe-patra and Featured by STelari )

I think that's exactly the way they hunted - in my mind anyway. What a challenging picture to draw with all the animals and the riders. It's full of movement and takes you right there. Amazing work.

LOVE IT!!! This picture makes me so happy for some inexplicable reason, and yet at the same time I teared up very slightly... I don't know why.  But I just love this! *squees*

Ваши работы восхитительны! Никогда не было желания изобразить что нибудь из дворфской тематики профессора :) (Smile) ?

Я наверно не правильно выразился. У вас прекрасно получается изображать элегантность, тонкость и красоту эльдар, людей, валар и майар. Не хотели бы попробовать нарисовать кого либо из творений Аулэ, потомков Дурина, коренастых мощных бородатых искусников:gnomeflirt: ?

А, мне сей термин оказался незнаком)
Поразмышлять на бумаге о гномах пока как-то руки не доходят,  у меня в планах продолжение серии "Дети Хурина", если только там появятся, постольку поскольку...     из того, чего у меня пока не было, я тут пробую изобразить толпу орков, для меня это более чем на данный момент).
