List Rules Vote up the coolest fan art inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.

J.R.R. Tolkien's classic saga The Lord of the Rings and its many sequels and companion novels have spawned decades upon decades of fans. Luckily for us, a lot of those fans are incredibly artistically talented and have been cranking out the LotR fan art for years. This Lord of the Rings art by fans helps bring a world described only in words to life with lush visualizations and detailed depictions of the landscapes of Middle Earth.

Every character has been given their due and the mediums of these works of art vary wildly (one person even painted shoes!). There is the fantastical, the daring, the dangerous - and it's all captured here for friends of the Fellowship like you. Lucky for you- this list is a lot shorter than binge watching all the movies again! Grab your best friend and get ready to summit Mount Doom - but first, check out this amazing Lord of the Rings fan art!
