Please help me track down an artist

Hi all,

A few years ago I had saved on my computer a picture I found while surfing. It was from a series someone did of LotR art that resembled Christian iconography. I've since changed computers and lost the picture... I don't remember the artist's name or anything... but I really want to check it out again!

There was a whole series of these paintings. The one I remember best was a black-cloaked and a white-cloaked figure, facing each other (no idea who they were...) The most striking thing about the series was that it looked just like icons. By icons I mean the ones venerated in the Orthodox Christian Church. I know I'm being really vague! This is so frustrating because I remember thinking how cool they were and now I am intruiged.

Does this description ring a bell for anyone? Thanks!!!

Wow!! That is... exactly what I asked for. A LotR picture in the style of an icon! But no, that is not it. Amazing, there must be two (at least) artists who have done that.

Thanks!

I'm 'into' art so I'll keep looking. Can you remember anything else about the artwork or artist? Do you recall if it was fan art or .. you said it was part of a collection.. was the entire collection LoTR related or various iconography?

I will try! It was all LotR themed; and may have been fan art. It was very, very good though... professional quality. I think I cam e across it on a website about Tolkien art.

Thanks :)
