This was the second of the two cards I produced for Fantasy Flight Games Lord of the Rings living card games. It depicts a dry river bed in the heart of Mirkwood forest, a location more prominent in the Hobbit than the Lord of Rings. It’s part of the encounter set titled ‘Return to Mirkwood’ if there are any LOTR card gamers interested.
It’s quite something being able to illustrate scenes from Middle-Earth. I would happily paint from Tolkiens stories all day if I could! I have always loved the way Tolkien described the scenery of Middle-Earth It has become very vivid in my minds eye, which makes it quite easy to depict from my point of view.
