There is a wonderful interview up over at LOTRO.com with fantasy artist, Ted Nasmith.

 

 

For those that do not know,

Ted Nasmith is a Canadian artist, illustrator, and architectural renderer. He is best known as an illustrator of J. R. R. Tolkien’s works — The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion.

Sample from the interview :

You’ve done 2 pieces for Lord of the Rings Online – the art for our Battle of the Black Gate update, and now for our Mordor Expansion! What are you exploring with these pieces?

I wanted both of these works to reflect both the dynamic ‘in-motion’ experience of the online version of the books in game format, while focusing also on the aesthetic beauty and intricately designed ‘sets’ players’ experience, hoping I’ve blended my characteristic realism effectively with the architecture that game designers have established.

 

Thanks to reader Trotter for the tip!
