Sketches & Studies (The Silmarillion)

Here you will find a collection of some of my sketches, studies and unpublished art based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Silmarillion: Note: paintings labelled “MECCG” were created for the Middle-earth Collectible Card Game; some of these do not represent actual literal scenes from Tolkien’s works.
