I See Fire - Erebor by TheEnderling I See Fire - Erebor by TheEnderling
 nr cen-ny
"I see Fire" (Elvish-Sindarian)

Some Tolkien love of Gandalf heading to Erebor. So much fun with this.

I'm a HUGE Tolkien and Jackson fan, the books, the movies etc. Cant get enough of it. This is a mixture of both the Hobbit Movies and the Book, I loved the first hobbit movie but Erebor didn't match 100% to what I saw in my head so I went back and looked at some of Tolkien's art work (He was a pretty awesome artist too i have to say) and his lake town is right in front of the entrance to the lonely mountain so I wanted to work on something that showed that, I think Jackson's laketown is further away because they have scaled it up to make the movie more epic (which is cool by me!) so yeah, i looked at all the maps of the lonely mountain and came up with this, its not as quite 'Lonely' in the sense that its around other smaller mountains but I wanted to show the branching arms and the Misty mountains in the distance too. Tolkien's maps are amazing to study alone so it's nice to work to things like this. I NEVER do fanart but I really couldn't resist, might try some more Tolkien stuff in the future! Not sure I am going to colour this one yet, I kind of like the Black and White. Feel free to give feedback :)

Side note: Tolkien's Languages are a pain to translate XD
Like my art on facebook! It REALLY helps me find work! ^_^

What programme did you use to get the sindarin letters?

None, translated it by hand, I have most of tolkien's books, went and found the alphabets online to copy and paste them in one by one.

Very nice picture!

Just one question: I made a cover of the song "I See Fire" and want to upload it on my youtube-chanel and I'm searching for a picture to underlie the music. My I use this picture of you? Sure I'll credit you. ;)

Greetings Nithril
