10 Pieces Of Gorgeous Middle-Earth Artwork

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.

Ravenloft Walkthrough Poster Map

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.

Star Wars / Disney Mashup Cosplay — Meet Snowbafett

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!
