Art: Tolkien Art by Jeff Murray (30)
by Elleth (ladyelleth)

Another art icon post. ^^ I had originally intended (and will do that, at some later point) to make an art post featuring Tolkien's own art, Alan Lee, John Howe, and Ted Nasmith. Googling them brought up an artist I hadn't heard of previously, namely, Jeff Murray. While he is not necessarily focused on realism, I really enjoyed his take on Tolkien's world, especially his vibrant use of colour is gorgeous, and definitely bears looking at in full view:

Jeff Murray's Gallery featuring Silmarillion, Hobbit and LotR art.

The usual: Comments and credit are love, but not necessary. Hotlinking kills bandwith, so don't do it. If you take any of these, please credit the original artist somewhere. No copyright infringement is intended.
