Here is a very nice website I found, from which I made my avatar. It has all the pictures by JRRT himself!

Here it is:
Pictures by J. R. R. Tolkien

This thread has been shifted to this forum, thanks to WGW and will hopefully gather more websites related to Tolkien Art by many many artists apart from himself

Far more extensive Telp []

Are all those also by Tolkien himself? They should make a scarpbook of these and sell it. It will be great to have these in print. No of anything like that?

I think I read that Pricilla (his daughter. I probably spelt it wrong) made something like that, but it is out of print....

Yeah, I found a book at a book store that had all the illustrations in there. It was so cool!! I was flipping through the pages, and examinig the drawings for nearly half an hour... There were many variations of the "Moria Gate" and how it came to its final version. It was super cool.

I renamed the thread, so now all of us can post links to pages with art related to Tolkien. Hopefully we can critique and discuss it too.

Thanks for the great sites. []

There is a book called J.R.R. Tolkien Artist & Illustrator by Wayne G. Hammond and Christina Scull that has lots of illustrations that he did. They range from sketches that he did of some of the places he lived to illustrations for the many stories he wrote and dust jackets and book covers for LotR. There is also a bunch of the heraldry stuff he did for many of the characters in his works and just some doodles that he did. []
The ISBN is 0-618-08361-8

Should we move this to the Reference Material section and try to make the list comprehensive?

Please let me know...

Those are some neat-o pics!!! Thanks for the link Lugbúrz! Oh- and ya, that might be a good idea to put it under Reference Materials... but that is just me!
This has nothing to do with Tolkien art, but how did you use a special character in your screen name? I can't find where to do that (I'm a little new). Just wonderin, thanks!

How about some more artwork links!

Maybe I should ask Tensen_Vil to post his(her?) website. It was very nice.

lug,

I think you should ask Orofacion of the Vanyar if he is interested in providing an artistic analysis of some of Tolkien's art or of just one of the drawings. Other Citizens might have the kind of artistic knowledge to do this, too, but I don't directly know of any.

BB:

That is a very interesting line of thought. Critcal analysis of Tolkien related artwork...

We shall request Orof to join us here but we are all welcome to provide feedback and likes and dislikes. After all art appreciation is important to one and all.

Thanks!
