This is a place for all M.T. ers with restless hands and minds to post or sell their artwork, talk about it, seek advice and possibly admiration. Everybody is free to join and talk about anything art related and especialy Tolkien -related art of any kind. I will not include music because Lord ZENITH has already started a thread about music in the PP. Here it's a place for those who want to talk peacefuly about painting, sketching and other forms of art.
If this thread lasts long enough and if you do want to we might consider organising some art events.
The rules are very simple

-The M.T. ers that post here their works must also post a text containing information.
-I can't be responsible for the safety of your works, once they're in here they're in the Net, so anyone can copy them.
-NOBODY and I mean NOBODY is to attack one of the artists, the opinions will be stated in an elegant manner.
-This is a civilized inn for civilized people, keep it that way.
-Respect those who post their art work because they expose their selfs and keep in mind that a traumatised artist is dangerous.

Also in this Inn you can post and talk about anything that has to do with art and caught your attention.

Since the artists of Minas Tirith have honoured this place with their presence, we are going to host a small event. This week the artists will post their Top Three works of theirs so that we can all admire them. Eveybody can come in and pay his respect to them, give his/hers view and talk about it.

And a special thank you for White Gold Wielder for advising me the best possible way and allowing me thus to keep this thread here.

Hmm...one of my top 3 isn't fully mine. If anyone has any objections about me including the finished mermaid drawing then I can change it

But I thought I'd start with something other than 2-D art just for a little change. The picture quality isn't all that good but I took it with my phone so that coule be why []
 -
It's a fish-house I made in my ceramics class. There's a door and the holes are supposed to be windows. You're supposed to be able to put a candle inside through a hole in the bottom and light shines ouf of the door, the windows, and an opening in the mouth.

The mermaid drawing. Hair not done by me....but it looks so good []

This one is probably the next best thing of mine.....that I can get up on the computer anyway [] Darn lack of scanner. But yeah....a girl in a hole []

So that's mine.

So why did you restart the thread Arien? Getting too big? Like the top 3 idea though.

Unhappy Eowyn

Navy Patriot

This last one you have seen before.

Dumas

And yes, I realize it is done on lined paper. Sue me! []

EDIT: I'm putting [removed in second edit] in my top 3 and taking out the first one.

EDIT 2 Changed my top three again. []

[] I hate ranking artwork []
I'm not sure these are my best, but they're probably my favourites-

First Holy Communion This is a new one, it's me as a little girl.

The Riot outside the Factory Illustration in watercolour of a scene from 'North and South'

Morgaine Just a quick impression of a character from 'The mists of Avalon'. I've now actually finished her, though I was too lazy to post the finished version []

As I said before, I'm not sure these are my best, but I thought it would be better if I displayed from a range of mediums [] The first one is done from a photo, though the other two I made-up []

Yayayayay! I'm so glad we're doing this! Outlet for creativity! Wooohooo! Excellent job so far gals and pals! Oh, Losty, no complaints about having the mermaid I did the hair for in your top 3. I mean, I only did the hair. You did 90% percent of the work. So, no bigs! I was glad to help out. []

White Maiden, I like your third the best. I think that if you just either make her body a bit larger, or head a bit smaller, it'd be in proportion and be perfect. []

I was bored

http://photobucket.com/albums/v420/Minastirithartists/

I was thinking that it might be a good idea to have one album for the drawings submitted here so when the thread is restarted we have ab easy way to gain access to old entries. I started with just the top 3 that have been submitted so far but if anyone wants to add their own pictures to their album or add themselves an album the username is astirithartistsand the password is minastirith. If for some reason someone starts abusing that account I could change the password and we could only let people who would need it know what it is.

Does this sound alright to everyone or is there anyone who wouldn't want their work in this album?

[] That's awesome Woodwose [] The shape of the hand is particularly good. Very interesting that you choose to only colour some of it- a very effective idea.

Oh my god Losty I love that fish house! [] It's so cute... [] (And very very well done.)

White maiden - I still love your Morgana one, it's absolutely beautiful. It all most brings Morgaine back to life. []

Celoriand - Post away yours. We want to see. []

Losty - That Photobucket one was a great idea. I think I'll upload my old ones there... the ones You guys have seen.
It was a good idea to start a photobase for Artist's Inn. []

Ahh, but I don't have photoshop. I downloaded GIMP and tried doing the same thing but everything I did messed up the image. Part of the reason is because I use a lot of subtle lines in most of my drawings so it messes them up. That or I'm just not doing it right. [] But thank you all the same Eled. []

~-~-~

Thank you White Maiden! I never use color when I draw but I was feeling "artsy".

Ha double post!

I won't have a three day weekend where I can draw as much as I have so I wanted to put up one more.

You know who []

I really like the proportions on this one. The lips came out a little too grainy for my liking but I'm no good with color so that can't be helped much. Oh, and the thing on the bottom that looks like a helmet is supposed to be the top part of a horse's head! []

EDIT: Losty, that looks really good! What did you use to make it, water color? It looks like a very emotional scene and you did an excellent job of capturing that.

I took a picture of this one a while ago with my phone. The picture turned out pretty bad. But my mom lost the original (I'm still really mad about that [] ) so I came back to the picture. I don't think this is nearly as good as the real one but I messed with it a lot on my photo editing program. I drew it as stationary to send to my boyfriend (Hence being mad at having lost it [] ) I used a refference for the pose and right hand.

 -

E: Funny, we both post while this doesn't have much activity in the same minute. [] I changed a lot with the light, I used the mouse and darkened all of the lines a bit, changed a few minor things, then I used, what on my programs is called, "Smart blur" and then a painting effect "oil painting" colorized the heart and a bit of the area around it, and did some touch-up work []

As usualy everybody does a magnificent jon []
Woody I love them all!

Now, Losty great idea []
That was why I asked in the old thread if you'd all like to keep some of your work.
So, since there is an account already, go ahead and enter your artwork there, once there your works are in Eled or myself will include them to the first post.
As for the password, if something happens, we'll can notify each other through pms, but I hope nothing will happen.

Keep it coming []

Well, I've never posted in here... But I'm working on my practise design unit, for my Art class. I've just started, and only made a few marks on the paper, but I wanted opinions of those who knew their stuff, concerning how I might improve it.

Here.

I'm also going to add some Japanese text down the side, a drawing of a Tamagotchi, of the bullet train, and maybe of some orchids creeping around one corner.

Thanks!

That is beautiful Ely!

I'll be starting my art classes too on tuesday, not monday thatnks to the transportation strike... so I'll show you what comes out of me when I focus totally on art, in an old house made of ecological material only. Actually that building is visited by artist and architechs from all over the world. I just went there today, it's uplifting and really art surrounded by spirit.

You all do beautiful work! Awesome thread!

Here's one of mine:

 -

Obviously, it's Arwen at Aragorn's funeral from the TTT movie. I did it to enter in the art contest for the Gathering in Toronto. It looks bad online because I did it in chalk/oil pastel. You can't really see the detail. Grr... [] Oh well... []

Elyrka, I don't "know my stuff" so I can't say if there is anything you can do to improve. It looks really good though! [] I'd love to see it when it's finished.

Lune that's cool. How did you make it?

Aina Mojo...whatever [] Yeah, I can't really see much detail but I love your use of color, especially in the sky. []
