I stumbled upon your paintings on Lord of the Rings, it truely looks amazing! I really like the style and the eye to detail and sharp edges (dunno how to express it well in words, im not an artist lol).
I'm doing a RPG-campaign, starting soon (heading to middleearth of course) and would like to ask if I can link your art and use it to express the vibes of Middle-Earth to the players (which would be really easy using your great art^^). It will be private and of course not commercial (mostly just linking, but maybe also printing oder using it over a long time), so this question may come a bit weird. I'm not familiar with copyright infringements and the official deviantart.com statement didn't help that much. 
So am I generally "allowed" to just link and use your art privately and noncommercial? Or is this already copyright infringement and this question is unneccessary? 

Either way, I really love your artstyle!

Hi Tenhil,

Thank you for the kind words regarding my art :) I'm actually very happy to share these paintings as that's what they were meant for. These paintings were not commissions, they were done purely as fanart so that means they don't belong to anyone other than me. Since they feature my own interpretation of things described in the books, New Line and Warner Bros. are definitely out of the picture here and actually, I don't even think the Tolkien Estate or HarperCollins could legally claim anything either (they don't hold copyrights on people's imagination!).  So regarding copyrights, you need not worry about that as long as you are not trying to make a profit out of these images. 

Enjoy the paintings and best of luck with your RPG campain!

Cheers,

Fred
