    Why is this one different from the previous illustration of Orthanc?

    well, i love tolkiens work, but that just looks terrible. it looks more like a slab of rock than a tower.

    This is a better Orthanc than the other “wedding cake” version and is closer to version in. . .

    This looks sort of like the movie Orthanc starting to melt, funny really, the likeness

    If the wrath of the Ents can’t hurt it, how can NĂºmenoreans carve and cut as detailed a tower as the one in

    – the movies? It’s very accurate to Tolkien’s description. And it sure as heck beats the cake.

    Considering Orthanc was hewn from a spire of rock, this looks fairly accurate to me.

    I like it, but it looks like my imagination of Cirith Ungol, personally…

    If you squint closely at the top you can see the porch that Grima Wormtonge through the Plantir off of!
