Hill of Himring...?



I was quite pleased with the general look of this, but am now wondering if it should have been bigger, somehow, given that this was the hill that withstood the downfall of Beleriand....

The design is loosely based on the fortress of Masada.  But I think if I'd reduced the size of the detail (eg, given it more towers but made the towers smaller) it might have been hard to get the whole thing in the picture.  It was only drawn on A4.

Perhaps it is bigger and we only see the very top? :)

I Think it's Lovely. The colours and the light is wonderful!

I think the scale you chose works quite nicely. The relative simplicity of the fort implies a kind of ancient solidity. It rather reminds me of some castles in Andalusia and the Levant.

Minor thing - your little colorful banners seem to be suspended on nothing in mid-air.

In the physical version you can see that they are on a rope strung from the tower to the building beneath, which is slanting and slightly curved by the wind that is tugging it sideways - but it's hard to make out that detail in the digital version.

I wondered if that might be the case. Of course, it didn't occur to me until right after I hit Post.
