Gondolin by ElmUnderleaf Gondolin by ElmUnderleaf
The Hidden Rock.
Inspired by Tolkien's "The Silmarillion" and Alan Lee's design work on the LotR films.
It runs across two pages in my sketchbook which explains the line in the middle. Scanned in two pieces and stitched in ye olde Photoshoppe.
Pencil.

you've really master that alan lee style of pencil work, the architecture's a little indescript (though from this distance it should be) and the overall silhouette is perfect. nice job!

Awesome depiction of Gondolin. I've always liked the architectural designs they did for the LOTR films and you captured it perfectly here. Good job!

your pencil style really does remind me of Alan Lee's work. I could never understand how he could get so much detail in with such light shading. and now you've done it! :clap:

It's beautifully done. I love Gondolin, and wouldn't mind if PJ made a movie out of it. I kinda pictured Gondolin to look like this, too.

Stunning work, really beautiful and life-like. Could have come right off a page of Alan Lee's or John Howe's drawing books.

If the city was one of the greatest cities ever then how come Morgoth was able to destroy it? :? This is a wonderful picture by the way. :D :jedi:

I must've been imagining a cross between Edoras and Minas Tirith when drawing this. hehe
Thanks for the kind words.
