dA's Tolkien Community- 1000 Deviations Strong
The tolkien group is the largest dA community concerning JRR Tolkien, professor, linguist, and author well-known for his books concerning Middle-earth. Created in December 2004, tolkien now has nearly 1300 members spanning 74 countries around the world. As we approach our 1000th deviation in the club gallery (with each piece posted with permission from the original artist), moderators AsliBayrak and AinuLaire went through the extensive gallery to put some pieces up to display.
Each thumbnail links to the original artist, so fave all you want. You will find that the tolkien gallery is very extensive. Deviations include traditional and digital paintings and drawings, photography, photo-manipulations, literature, artisan crafts, 3D and fractal art, text art, cartoons, comics, and even emoticons all inspired by Professor Tolkien's wonderful works.
Works Inspired by the LOTR Book

It's been awhile

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 10, 2014, 12:38 AM
Since I've been able to create my own work!
I've been doing nothing but client work ...pays the tuition bills, but can't say it satisfies my artistic soul.

It's funny, when I finally start making a decent living at this, I'm miserable and frustrated that I can't paint what I want anymore. I feel as though I've sold out.
Is this normal?

I miss you all so much - I really want to catch up on all the creative directions, new stuff you've been posting. I have lots of new work I haven't posted, just needs those finishing touches...

See you soon :)

"Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” - Steve Jobs
