*laughs* I'm also excited to find another die-hard fan. The Silmarillion really does remind me of a lot of the Old Testament in some ways. It's sort of like a story (set in a fantasy world) of original sin and the Fall of Men....errr, Elves :) (*assumes Elrond-ian accent* "Men are weak.") As to the artwork, I have to say that Nasmith will always be my favorite. I just love his oceans and skies and sunsets and the paintings of the swans pulling the boats and the burning ships. His landscapes are tremendous. I actually have one of his paintings framed in my room. I do like Howe as well. He's really skilled and I think he does better action scenes and better human --- err, Elven, Dwarven, Orcen, etc.... --- figures. :D I have to say that Lee is not my favorite, (his paintings are just a bit too white-ish for me :) ) but I appreciated him a lot more after I noticed how several of his paintings had been recreated for the movies. I just thought it was so neat that Peter Jackson did that.

Oooh, I love The Silmarillion -- you're dealing with bigger Tolkien fan than you realize :D I also really like most of Ted Nasmith's illustrations. I think the Sil. is a wonderful treasurehouse of ideas for paintings and artwork.

Curtiss Shaffer replied:

Ok, now you really have my attention! It is so rare to find anyone who has tried to read the silmarillion, let alone finished it, let alone liked it! I work with college educated teachers all day and if I ever dropped the word Silmarillion, none would have any idea what I was talking about! And Ted Nasmith too! I remember seeing his Minas Tirith Painting years before the movie came out and thinking "yep that's it, he nailed it". Alan Lee has been my favorite artist since art school though. When I first heard they were making the movies I remember thinking "I wish they'd get Alan Lee to help". When he was made art director, Peter Jackson said "I want my movies to look like your paintings have come to life" (you probably knew that). After I heard that I had alot more faith that they'd be able to pull something successful off in the eyes of Tolkien fans. Do you like Lee's work? How about John Howe's?

:D -- I know. We're breaking all of our records for heat right now. It's pretty bad. To respond to your response to my comment on your oliphaunt piece, yes, of course I am a big Tolkien fan. Loved those movies, but the books are even better. Of course, books generally are! :)

Curtiss Shaffer replied:

Your portfolio is very uplifting! Love the sunrise! You might try reading Tolkien's The Silmarillion? It's not for everybody, and it's as difficult at times as reading the Old Testament, but it's my favorite of his books. Just finished recording a song and have to sleep.

Love it! The perspective is so unique -- it feels like the architecture is looming up on you.

Curtiss Shaffer replied:

Thank you Bryana! The original is in pencil and is large enough that I'm glad it's done. The sepia was a photoshop colorization, just to see what it might look like. Thanks again and I hope it cools down a little for you down there.

Description

Lindon was the last mainland remnant of Beleriand following the War of Wrath at the end of the First Age, the rest of the land having been broken or submerged by the tumults. While not exactly clear, there are indications that before the Downfall of N�r in the Second Age Lindon was larger than it was during the Third Age.

During the Fourth Age, it was one of the last Elven havens as the remaining Elves of Rivendell and Lothl�n left Middle-earth. In the beginning of the first century, Fourth Age, it experienced a population growth as migrants from the east came to Mithlond. Not all Elves left Middle-earth immediately, many of the migrants made long-term temporary settlements.
Aside from Elves, Gandalf, Bilbo Baggins and Frodo Baggins also went to Valinor from the Grey Havens, and a family tradition held that Samwise Gamgee, having been himself a Ring-bearer, albeit briefly, did likewise, in the year 1484 of the Shire Reckoning, Fourth Age 61.
