Alrighty, let's start off with the positive: Your technique in using the pencils is absolutely superb. The values are incredibly smooth...

Hey guys!

I bought a domain name and designed a website to display my works and to put up commission information (and a nifty order form, whee). Check it out, let me know what you think (and any other web designers who come across this, any advice would be appreciated!)

  • Listening to: iTunes
  • Playing: LOTRO


AinuLaire has started a donation pool!
453 / 5,000
I would love to get the tolkien group a subscription that I, a poor college student currently searching for a job, cannot afford. Any extra would go to winners of contests held by the group. :)

You must be logged in to donate.

United States
I'm a 21-year-old wannabe art-type currently studying for a BA in arts; I expect to graduate in 2012. I was born and raised in Southern California and love it dearly. My name is Finnish; my mom was born and raised in Finland. My father is an American "mutt". I'd have it no other way.

I am the eldest of four. The youngest was adopted from China in 2007 and I tend to talk about her quite a bit. She's one of my greatest inspirations.

I'm also a huge Lord of the Rings and Tolkien geek, if my journal and gallery were not enough hints. Tolkien has changed my life, as cliche as that sounds. I began writing and drawing because of his influence, and now I aim to get into the film industry due to Jackson's films on his books. That must count for something. And yes, I am in love with Aragorn. His lack of reality makes no difference.

I'm a really open person and willing to talk about basically anything. Feel free to send me a note whenever you want. :aww:

Current Residence: Middle-earth. Or SoCal. Wherever my mind happens to be at the time.
Favourite genre of music: Rock, 'Nu Metal', soundtrack music
Favourite style of art: Traditional, Digital
Operating System: Windows Vista. Bleh.
MP3 player of choice: iPod <3
Wallpaper of choice: Anything with Aragorn ^^
Favourite cartoon character: Zuko <3
Personal Quote: Practice makes perfect; since perfect does not exist, you will always be practicing.

Hello there, fellow Tolkien geek! Lovely gallery you have here :D Just curious, are you also on/a staffer at It seems like you would be!

But anyway, great works. I love when I find avid Tolkien fans like myself. It helps me remember there's still people with good taste out there :)
