New Land by RadoJavor New Land by RadoJavor
Some old picture, that I didn't publish at the time. Done some 2 years ago, for the project Elveon. It shows Landfall of a mighty elvish race. My inspiration was Tolkien (of course):), his Númenórean race. The Ship is my creation, based maybe on some greek or roman designs. Done in photoshop, in some 35-40 hours. There is a lot of details which takes me ages to do. Hope you will like it.

It looks a lot like the greek triremes (hence it being based on greek design haha!) This is amazing!!

Oars are too high. That makes it a hell of work for the oarsmen., nearly or already impossible. Based on the muscles inside a human body and how the oar system is working. Otherwise a great artwork!

Me gusta la imagen pero un barco de ese tamaño se ancla en la costa, no se entra hasta la playa.

Wow! I found this picture years ago when I was waiting for Empire Total War to be released, because I was searching for the concept art. I can't believe you're the guy who actually created it! Is it supposed to depict a specific event? I always thought it was supposed to be the fleet of Ar-Pharazôn, King of Númenor, landing on the shores of Valinor, after breaking 'the ban'. It would would awesome if you ever created more pictures like this, depicting events from the Silmarillion.

I'm a little confused. "Mighty elvish race"? The Numenoreans were mortal men, not elves. It is a beautiful picture, though.

This light, those ships (like merge of galley with galeon) and tiny elven silhouettes, ruined towers in the background... Epic. Majestic. Totally awesome :)

Really beautiful ship design. In addition to looking great, all the ships look very solid and completely sea-worthy, which adds a lot.

You're immensely talented, and in addition to that talent, it's easy to tell that you also have put a great deal of effort and research into your work, and it shows.

This is just gorgeous, and not a scene I've seen any Tolkien fan draw before.

Of course, after I'd admired it for the first few minutes, I did notice that the rocky beach looks like it'd rip the keel apart - so this would best fit a situation where you're committing to the new land completely and destroying your ships behind you.

But it took me a long time to look away from the ships long enough to think about it. This is glorious!

Great job! But sea-worthy ships of sizes like the ones in your painting do not get beached. It is not easy to get them un-beached. They are usually anchored and the crew get on land on rowboats.
