Middle-earth Inspiration: Jerry Vanderstelt – Bag End: Expect Me When You See Me

Inspiration Time!

This week has been slightly slower on the art creating front for me so I decided to do something a little different in order to ensure getting a worthwhile post published and sticking to my new posting schedule of every Sunday.

For this post, we’ll be taking a brief look at an incredible piece of work from the amazing artist Jerry Vanderstelt!

Bag End: Expect Me When You See Me!

They Were Once Men – WIP Update – Lord of The Rings Oil Painting Illustration

The Nazgul Have Returned!

Well, in terms of my latest oil painting on the easel anyway…

I’ve been getting up earlier than necessary for work over the past week and sneaking in a 30-40 minute painting session in order to work my way back into this piece and make some serious headway. It’s proved productive and the painting is now at a stage where all I need to do is go over the figures and the render the finishing details, not long now and we’ll have another piece for the portfolio.

Anyway, let’s get to the artwork!

The River Dweller’s Hut – #WorldsForgotten

After a brief hiatus –

Welcome to my #WorldsForgotten series, we’re back on track with the project but with a few minor changes!

Every fortnight I will be posting a new ink illustration accompanied by a short story/description just to set the scene; the rest will be left to the imagination of the viewer!

Many folk are rather wary of the river dwellers but those who know them well know that they are a hardworking people, always willing to trade goods and share stories of their exploits on the waters.

The river dweller’s have built entire towns on water; usually large lakes in some parts of the world but there are also many isolated huts scattered along the rivers and estuaries allowing the inhabitants to work alone and in a self-sustaining manner.

Gudeshu Mountain – #WorldsForgotten

Welcome to my #WorldsForgotten series, every week I will be posting a new ink illustration accompanied by a short story/description just to set the scene; the rest will be left to the imagination of the viewer!

This week I’ve taken a slightly different approach. There is not a single shred of evidence of man-made anything, anywhere in the scene. We’re going to explore for a while the far eastern lands of my created world.

Farlurst Fort – #WorldsForgotten

Welcome to my #WorldsForgotten series, every week I will be posting a new ink illustration accompanied by a short story/description just to set the scene; the rest will be left to the imagination of the viewer!

The Illustration

The fort had seen better days and that’s for sure.

Abandoned and left by those that once kept watch on the lands around it.

Left to withstand one last battle; the final siege that those old stones would ever see.

Left to face the two biggest enemies of all such structures…

Left to become a casualty of war; another heedless victim to the disintegrating effect caused by exposure to the harsh weather and the passing of time.
