Beautiful Medieval-Style Tolkien Illustrations In Watercolor

There have been many different illustrators applying their own signature style to artwork based on the stories of J. R. R. Tolkien, from my fav Ian Miller to Pauline Baynes and even Tolkien himself, but few have applied a style as appropriately antiquated as Russian artist Sergei Iukhimov.

Sergei's watercolor works capture iconic scenes from the books in a style reminiscent of medieval Russian Orthodox iconography, and his works have been used in Russian language publications of Lord Of The Rings, adding a touch of the strange and surreal which brings these scenes to a whole new level of epic fantasy awesomeness.

You can see more of Sergei's works at Live Memory and egelantier's Tumblr.
