Rivendell by JonHodgson Rivendell by JonHodgson

Rivendell for The One Ring rpg from Sophisticated Games and Cubicle 7.

Probably one of the hardest images to create as a single image, as well as one of the first. In my mind there are many different views and features that make up Rivendell. It was extremely challenging to put one down as a definitive image. That would also fit the required image dimensions.

“Hidden somewhere ahead of us is the fair valley of Rivendell, where Elrond lives in the Last Homely House.”

So true it would be challenging. I'm a Elf Hunter in LOTRO and every time I ride down the mountain  to Rivendell it is always breath taking. The road curves one way , then the other and so on  and each time I see a different aspect of the valley.You did a good job of depicting one view of the valley.  Beautiful painting.

The simplicity of the tonal design and color is really striking. It's got almost a Japanese woodcut feel to it. Great job!

Wow! A wonderful piece Jon! The lighting is awesome and really gives that "elven-feel". A wonderful sight after a wearisome trip I'm sure.

I like how you've got the sunlight reaching down into the ravine. I would love to visit there.

It is definitely elegant and mystical, but there is something about the lights that make it look like "home"

Beautiful work! You invoke the Tolkien's feel while keeping things distinct from the (on their own excellent) movies. :)
