Do you still have the original? Is it for sale?

I'm not sure I understand your meaning -- it's a digital piece ... (If "original" = the face reference I used, it was from a magazine page online.)

Ah, I didn't realise it was digital. I thought it was an oil painting and you uploaded a digital image of it. Wanted the 'real life' painted version. I shall have it enjoy it on the computer. Great work; very emotive. Easy to put a narrative to it in your mind.

Good looking and sinister...spot on and exactly like described in the book. Very cool! ;) (Wink)

One question though:
Ardapedia, the German-speaking Tolkien-Wikipedia is in a process of polishing their articles with professional artwork. So I am searching in Deviantart for artists who may allow us to use their work in a, of course, non commercial way. The consent of the artists is very important to us. Copyright and ownership of course would be marked so no one else could claim it. 

Could I use some of your works for this purpose?

I look forward to a positive answer. :D (Big Grin)

Frankly, this is perfect. I enjoyed the atmosphere of the painting, the way you drew the hair, the color scheme. The face is amazingly expressive.

Thank you! It was a little difficult to resist saturating the colors while I was painting.

How long did it take to do the face?

Errr, no idea, but a goodly time (around 2 hours?). I had to keep zooming out to make sure the shadows still looked cool. ^^;

Thanks! It was great to finally be able to (sort of) paint a "cool-looking" face.

He looks so manly, all he needs now is facial hair. I challenge you!

Uhhhh, maybe next time. He looks a little elvish to me, not to mention I like my guys clean-shaven. :lol: Yeah, facial hair = the next frontier. Hahahahaha
