Thank you!

I love the way the mountain and tower stretch up above them with that winding road.

The horses are supposed to be black, and ... hm, proportionally, quite a lot bigger. I'm not sure how that would mesh with the other details though.

Re: Thank you!

Oh, yeah, I guess I ended up drawing ponies :P Whups. I'll fix that in the next version.

Re: Thank you!

Yeah, the horses, but also... I kinda expected Brod to be bigger, maybe even a little (forgive the pun) broader.

Re: Thank you!

Hmm ... maybe it would be easier to make Nib smaller? Which would make both Brod and the horses seem bigger, though I'm not sure how well the proportions would work out.

Re: Thank you!

That would work best to preserve most of the current composition, but those gates would have to be shrunk down some, too, or made to appear more Mordor-esque.
