Art: Minas Tirith by Ellynn Ithilwen

Artist: Ellynn Ithilwen
Title: Minas Tirith
Rating: G
Inspiration #1: "Have you ever seen it, Aragorn? White tower of Ecthelion, glimmering like a spike of pearl and silver. Its banners caught high in the morning breeze. Have you ever been called home by the clear ringing of silver trumpets?" (Movie version, FotR movie; Boromir-version)
Inspiration #2: "Then Pippin cried aloud, for the Tower of Ecthelion, standing high within the topmost wall, shone out against the sky, glimmering like a spike of pearl and silver, tall and fair and shapely, and its pinnacle glittered as if it were wrought of crystals; and white banners broke and fluttered from the battlements in the morning breeze, and high and far he heard a clear ringing as of silver trumpets." (Book version, RotK, Chapter 1; Pippin-version)
Media: photoshop manipulation
Notes: I love this picture of Minas Tirith and Boromir's words from FotR movie; since there is a similar quote in the book, too, I just couldn't resist making both versions. :) I made both of them in three sizes; the smallest is put in the post as the normal picture, while the other two are only as links, because of the width of the page. ;)

Oh, I am so glad you posted both versions! These are very nice!

And that picture of Pippin is one of my favorite expressions!

Goshj, I love both and you have chosen the character images so well. Pippin's wonder and sympathetic Boromir missing home so much!

Nice composition. I like the image of Boromir you choose, the expression is quintessential Boromir.

Lovely illustrations of a couple of quite lyrical passages from The LotR!

Those are lovely and intense moments in LOTR and you've illustrated them very well!
Also, by the way, Happy Birthday!

Difficult to decide which one I like better, but Boromir wins (even if only just).

Boromir is my favorite too. But I'm sure you already knew it. *grins*

I especially love the Boromir one. That always makes me tear up! Both are lovely.

Boromir is my favorite too. :) And I love that scene in Lothlorien when he speaks of his city. :)

Oh, excellent! Love them both, inspired by both the movie and book moments! And appreciate the reminder of the book moment that inspired the movie one. Beautiful looks at two favorite characters superimposed on the view of the White City!
