Eowyn and the nazgul 2 by moonxels Eowyn and the nazgul 2 by moonxels
here is a rework of my "old" Eowyn vs the nazgul art

based on feedback
I think it's more dynamic
I don't know ,you decide!:)

edit:I just made a few retakes on some issues that were addressed in the comments(colors,hairs,sword...)

Simply amazing work! Your concept is great. And this is to be truthful a very good improvement on the concept of the first artwork.

The details on the dragon are very life like, and you have put much work into drawing the veins on the wings which adds to the details and also makes it very natural.

The woman fighting the dragon had been drawn very nicely and just like the dragon looks very life like due to the large amount of details you have put in.

The warrior (/creature) on the dragon is very fierce indeed and the whole hollow look you have given it multiplies the horror and also highlights him in the background.

Overall its an amazingly detailed piece of work with a great concept and skillful digital painting techniques. Keep up the great work! :)

Wow, this is pretty great! I am looking for something to critique but I can't really find anything, you must have spent so long on this!

Where should I start.. I love the detail you put into this- especially like the dragon's face and wing area. The lady is nice too, I love the hair =P

And the anatomy is really amazing, and I really love the mix of colors in the sky around the one riding the dragon.

...And the fog is really nice too, it adds a little intensity to the piece.

Overall very amazing, fantastic, and pretty epic. Please keep up the awesome work!

both amazing, but i think eowyn should have used a rohirrim sword (the heart shaped one)

Nice, I thought the movie version of the helmet was silly looking. I like yours better.

Have you ever wished for that novel that jumps out at you with emotion, action, love, humor, and intense, terrifying suspense, JUST like J.R.R. Tolkein's LOTR Trilogy? I know you must have read those books when you were younger, and probably still do today.


I can see that you took from your own imagination mixed with what the novels described to you to make this amazing piece of art, and did not just rely on what you saw in the films.


I'd like you to know that I am a young man with that kind of imagination. The imagination the world of readers NEEDS! If your art picture was to be the cover of a book, that would drive readers nuts, and that book would sell. Readers judge books by their covers nowadays, we all know that this is the truth.


I am looking for that piece of art that will jump out at the observer, just like this art does.
I've been brainstorming/outlining, and perfecting my story for over five years now, and I'm finally ready to complete my own trilogy. I've already finished my first of the three novels, and all I need is the cover art to bring the "BAM" to what I know for a fact will already be a great story.


The genre is Sci-fi/Fantasy/Action Adventure, and it has Christian undertones, just as the LOTR trilogy did. I got my inspiration from memorable novels such as the Black, Red, and White books from Ted Dekker. I'm also a fan of Frank Peretti's great works. I write my books in the style of how Steven Spielberg directed his greatest films. Those were the types of movies that unlocked people's hearts, especially back in the early days of special effects.


My name is Kyle J. Stone. I'm 21 years old, I have a wife, and a son that was born on Valentine's Day this year. I'm currently on deployment to Afghanistan, but will be home around Christmas time. Now, I'm not a rich guy, I don't have all the money in the world.


But one thing I can guarantee, is full credit credit for the art that you create. I have my novel copyrighted already, as I'm sure you can settle what rights you have to your art.

If you would like a synopsis of my story, a description of a piece of art that I am requesting, and would like to participate in giving me your best piece pertaining to my story, I'd like to give you the opportunity to put your skills to the TEST!


I am not demanding anything, and I told you the only thing I can promise, only because I am part of a budgeting family. I am offering you the chance to make history with me. If the novel does become successful in the coming year or so, who knows what kind of careers will be opened to you by people who cherish your skills as an artist? People take notice of art like this, so keep that in mind!


I offer this as a friend, and as a person with imagination and a dream. If you would like to contact me further, please email me at I will gladly show you a synopsis of my story, and answer any questions you may have.


If you decide not to, I still have no doubt that you will one day become a widely known artist, and will still appreciate you taking the time to listen. The more people I get to know about me, the better!


I'm bringing Epic Adventure Novels BACK, moonxels. Let's just hope the world is READY! :)
