Armies of the North by Merlkir Armies of the North by Merlkir
A Tolkien piece after a long time. It's the mixed armies of the North - elves of Mirkwood, dwarves, woodsmen, Beornings and Bardings of Dale - marching together towards victory or something.

Had a lot of fun with this, it was nice not to have to research extensively, plan too much. I just sat down and relaxed while drawing dudes walking.

I like this one. Simple, but you put some care into it anyway. I also like the theme of the Free Peoples united and marching together. Can't have enough of that theme in Tolkien art.

Yes. It's unlikely they would've marched in this way, but it is more of an illustration of an idea, not an event.

It reminded me of the casual lineup for the noonday parade at Ohio Renaissance Festival. (Good times...) More like a coming together than an actual procession yet. :) (Smile)

Wow, fantastic! I'm so happy to find this here; I received my copy of "Aiglos" yesterday which had this one in very small size, and it's great seeing it bigger. Digital, you say? Wow!

Oh, neat! Thanks! Yeah, I remember someone from Aiglos asking me about it, pity if it's printed too small. :( (never got my copy I think)
And yes, entirely digital. Magic of ArtRage. ;)
