Gondolin by Bmosig Gondolin by Bmosig
A watercolor painting of Gondolin, the hidden city. The perspective was very hard to achieve, and I'm still unsure if it did come out well.

It looks too much like an Arabic Human city in the place of Gondolin, Also, it seems that all of Tumladen is more of a hill than a valley. Good detail and coloring though.

well done.. the perspective works, the idea of how you constructed the city, i mean the high walls and the green above, that's absolutely lovely.. though the gap of the walls to the backside remembers me ssomehow to Minas Tirith.. but all in all, one of my fav Gondolin-Pics ever seen

This is the best rendition of Gondolin I've ever seen, and I think of myself as a huge fan of Tolkien's work with Gondolin as my favourite location in Arda.

Words cannot describe. I haven't signed into this account for ever, but I had to comment here...

Amazing... thank you so much.

You know, this really makes the Hidden City feel as huge as it was. Most Gondolin pictures show only a cramped burg on a hill, but your depiction finally does justice to the size of Turgon's city.

And it is beautiful and nigh perfect in all other respects as well.

Very well done.

Amazing!! The perspective works very well! Again very recognizable as Gondolin but still a different original view on it's architecture. Makes me mourn it's destruction even more...

now THIS is gondolin..really captures the city the way it feels from the book.. n the perspective from the cliff is perfect..the way the city itself is set looks unique and is architecturally distinctive but not too far away from wat u mite imagine in a tolkien story..just my opinion anyways...

A breathtaking view, and the panorama of the city has something of an architectural drawing or plan in it. All these squares, fountains and streets remind of the very first Tolkien's concept of Gondolin from the "Book of Lost Tales".
