I have 2 jigsaw puzzles that I enjoy doing, They are beautifully drawn, in rich colours & delicate detail, & inspired by the works from Tolkien. They are drawn by the artist Rodney Matthews. Does anyone else have artists or art that they are fond of ?

I love those Azriel, how I wish PJ had used visuals like that for The Hobbit film, very magical. Is the second one Beorns Hall or Baggend? I cant quite make it out.

Very Happy He really is a great artist. I'm particularly fond of how he manages to portray landscape that vanishes into the distance. And water, like in the last picture you posted - wonderful Very Happy

As long as he doesn't show their faces they're fine, in my opinion. But, I agree - I too love his paintings because of the landscapes

All these apart from the Balrog, are by Donato Giancola, the pic of Tolkien is full of little details I wish i could find a larger version. The cups have Silmaril patterns and the books are all his works, every detail like the map is perfect. He has the White Tree of Gondor on his chair.

I could only find that one on Google Images, I searched for Donato Giancola Tolkien, maybe there are more sizes? I dont know how to find them though.
