Whether it's a really good fanartist or a professional novelist, what we've seen can have a big impact on what we write, draw, or even just like to see in fandom. It may be as obvious as crossover references or as abstract as characterization style. Did someone hook you on a particular pairing that you never would have thought you would have liked? Did reading a published novel make you think about Tolkien's characters differently?

So, for fanartists and authors, who are your inspirations? For those who love to look at paintings and graphics, is there a particular artist who just captures your inner image of a particular part of Middle-earth? For readers, is there somebody out there who really makes their OCs tie in with Arda? Let's share the goodies! ;)

Well, you got me onto Denethor/Finduilas and the Stewards' family as a whole. I have my own images of the characters, but Gold-Seven on deviantart does some wonderful art that influences me.

I've always thought Hyel's artwork captured Arda.
