Wow :)

The part that caught my eye the most was how each the persons on the illustrations have their own unique facial features.

It's very common for artists to get stuck with a particular facial type that is mirrored in all the faces they draw. (You know what I mean, someone can draw beautifully, but all the characters look like they're modeled after one statue.) The faces of your characters however are each distinctly unique in their own ways, just as it is in real life. Makes the art very captivating to look at, the eye moving from one character to another, trying to guess their personalities and to imagine their feelings and thoughts at the time.

I am deeply, deeply impressed.
Probably some of the best Tolkien-related drawings I have ever seen!
