An interesting and original depiction of Orthanc and Saruman! I think I have never seen anything like this - Isengard as seen by Orthan...

What do you think, should Castamir the Usurper be part of my "Kings of Gondor" series of portraits?

Czech Republic
I am a traditional artist, focusing on landscapes, architecture and fantasy illustrations. I am especially inspired by the works of J.R.R. Tolkien and I've created many illustrations based on them, but I often paint real-life landscapes as well. My speciality is decorative border designs, taking inspiration from various historical art styles. I have often used my traditional art in my graphic design projects.

I have a website about the world of J. R. R. Tolkien: Angrenost (in Czech) with my illustrations and a monarchist portal Pro monarchii (in Czech too).
You may also find me on Facebook and LinkedIn.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarves
I made this illustration for January 2017 contest on Projekt ilustrace website. The monthly theme was Sněhurka, which is "Snow White" in English (but while the English phrase "Snow White" may offer wider possibility of interpretation, the Czech name Sněhurka refers quite unmistakeably to the fairy tale character (or rather characters, as there are at least three tales with different persons of this name)).

So I decided to make a classical fairy-tale illustration and to draw the eponymous heroine with her seven friends. Instead of the well known Disney-style Snow White so often depicted, I drew my own version of the character. Also, as you can see, my dwarves are rather Tolkien-esque, which should come as no surprise for my faithful watchers (therefore I also chose the plural "dwarves" instead of the original "dwarfs"). You might even imagine this scene as taking place somewhere in Middle-earth, if you wish. ;-)

I originally intended to make a coloured illustration for the contest, but I couldn't make it in time, so I submitted this version, but I'm going to colour it later.
