This is really nice. I like that you made the fortress look realistic, not like some giant twisted rock formation which rose out of the earth. Just because a fortress belongs to a villain doesn't mean it has to look freaky and alien. Gothic architecture is imposing enough. :)

Ha! Yes, 't is true. Even when black and pointy on the outside, on the inside a roof is just, like any other, a roof over ones head.

Yes - and besides I like pointy black roofs... Pity that in this life I don't dwell in a castle.

Beautiful. People don't seem to do TLOTR art much anymore. Makes me happy to see someone still keeping at it. Amazing work. :nod:
