It's interesting how tastes differ. He is (as I indicated in the other thread) my favorite Tolkien illustrator. I think he does a wonderful job in capturing the power and mystique (and sadness) of the Silmarillion (as shown by the picture currently in Sassy's signature).

I find Ted Nasmith work as satisfactory but I personally prefer John Howe's rendering of The Lord of the Rings. Especially the painting of Gandalf which was unfortunately stolen. (I actually have the 1 volume Lord of the Rings with his picture on the cover)

A few weeks ago I added a piece to my collection I've wanted for a couple years or so:

It sits on the chest of drawers in my bedroom along with the Evenstar in its Pendant Display by the Noble Collection. Behind them on the wall is my "The Wedding of the King" canvas print by the Brothers Hildebrandt.

That Aragorn statue makes me wish that the ROTK EE included that seemingly lost-forever scene of Aragorn donning the royal armor from within the Tower of Ecthelion. Next to the Rohirrim guards, I think it's the best costume in all three films.

TRhe first piece in a long time to tempt me. But then my collection has always been mostly the Environments, and they are equally good in The Hobbit.

Out of my price range, but stunning:

Pretty amazing. I wonder what else they will follow up with in this Masters Collection.

Yes, I can't wait to see what else they do. That Gollum was, yes, stunning. I don't even want to know what it costs. :P

He looks alive. Figures like that so often don't.

Which I believe would convert to a little over $2,000.00. Not unreasonable for what it is, though certainly not something that I would ever consider getting.

Wow. . . . Fine for some people! I'd gladly go look at them in a museum. But I'd rather spend a spare $2,000 on travel, I think.
