Massacre Outside Fangorn by sandzen Massacre Outside Fangorn by sandzen
This one draws more inspiration from the shot in the The Two Towers where Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli approach the pile of slain orcs and goblins and such that Eomer and his Rohirrim left just outside Fangorn forest, believing Merry and Pippin to be amongst the fallen.

Along the scene does occur in the book, I don't recall if there's mention of an orc head on a pike, though the steaming heap of corpses is no doubt present.

I had thought to include a row of trees disappearing to the left, but it seemed like a lot of work if I screwed something else up, so I omitted it. I think it would've messed with the perspective anyway.

Thank you. Yeah, I've looked. There aren't a lot of people on devART using a zen garden as a medium. Which is a shame, really.
