Rangers of the North III by woutart Rangers of the North III by woutart
Standing in the ruins of the lost Northern Kingdom, the Dunadan contemplates what once was and what seems impossible to regain.

The tragedy of the waning might of the Numenorean exiles always grabs me.

Third installment of my Rangers of the North series.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Based on the writings of J.R.R. Tolkien.

Inspired by a picture ([link]) of my friend David :iconethalenskye: taken by his wife Cheryl :icondanidaeskye: posted on :iconskyestock:.

Maybe I'll touch up some parts, but for now I'm done. :D Must sleep!

Let me know what you guys think.

Wow, you could have pulled this scene directly out of my MERP campaigns!  Always did like old Dunedain ruins, and my players learned to both love and hate them. The dark-clad ranger (based on your well-garbed friend) looks properly pensive and roguish. I like his southpaw-worn longsword and his sizable pouch!

Ah, sweet MERP. That's a few years ago. Love that game. Now we play Song of Ice and Fire, which is a very good system (in my opinion).

I will have to try that game out at a gaming con sometimes, if you think it is good.

Haunting image, the ruins of a lost civilization. Great detail. I assume this is Fornost, capital of Arthedain, destroyed by the forces of Angmar before the army of Gondor arrived to help.

Thanks. Glad you like it.

It could very well be. I always assumed it would be Annuminas, but Fornost might be more 'realistic' since its location would be nearer the lands he'd be patrolling.

Another fine piece. I particularly like how you juxtapose the statue on one side of the wall with the living ranger on the other side.  Sort of showing what was and what is.
