The writings of J.R.R. Tolkien have inspired a lot of people over the years in many different ways. Perhaps the biggest impact would simply be the amount of fantasy writing that has been produced as a result of The Lord Of The Rings. But there's also been a lot of artwork produced inspired by his creation of Middle-Earth.
Here I'm picking out ten really gorgeous, but very different pieces of Middle-Earth inspired art for you to enjoy. All of this art is available to look at on Deviantart and I would strongly encourage you to go and browse the rest of the artists work. It will be rewarding.
Okay this is kind of fabulous. One of the most highly regarded adventure modules for the original Advanced Dungeons and Dragons ( #AD&D ) was Ravenloft by Laury and Tracy Hickman. It was well beyond the norm (at the time) when it came to atmosphere and storytelling. Well Jason Thompson has procuded an illustrated walkthrough of that module (and several others) which is available as a poster. The 18" x 36" print is absolutely packed with humorous details like those in the detail section posted above.

It's been a while since I posted a good #LEGO build for people to enjoy and it's time to correct that with this impressive set of characters from The Hobbit (Peter Jackson movie versions). The entire of Thorin Oakenshield's company is on display here and the scale used to build them allows for a lot […]
So here's some really cool artwork by artist JP Valderrama which he calls Locked In. On the surface it looks as though Boba Fett has this Predator in his sights. But then you remember that Boba Fett can't shoot much better than a StormTrooper and is in fact the worst bounty hunter in the entire […]
Perhaps one of the longest running rivalries in Marvel Comics… in superhero comics as a whole, is The Incredible Hulk vs. The Thing. Going all the way back to Fantastic Four #12 and perhaps more significantly their full on battle in Fantastic Four #25. Hulk is clearly the stronger of the two (by a log way) […]
Now I'm on record (repeatedly) on the subject of just how lame a character Boba Fett actually is. Third worst in the entire Star Wars universe isn't hyperbole. That's actually where I think he ranks. Fett has one thing and one thing only going for him. He looks pretty cool (in a 70s sort of way). So Amber Arden's costume (as photographed here by Estrada Photography) takes the one good thing about Fett and makes it massively cooler by combining it with a Disney Princess. Snow White to be specific. Not only does she give the Mandalorean armor the correct color scheme, she's even put a bow on the helmet!
