    Does anyone else think that John Howe deserves a little more credit for the concept art of the films?
    All I ever hear about is how wonderful Alan Lee is. He is, but I think the two artists shared creative responsibility about equally-- Alan Lee did mostly sets and building design (for instance, he designed and partially built Rivendell and the Last Homely House, and Helm's Deep), and John Howe did a lot of paintings as models for action shots, and designed a lot of creatures, including the Fell Beasts.

    If I'm being a nit-picking moron, just tell me, but I don't think it seems fair to notice the work if only one artist.

    they deserves credit yes, but they work behind the great actors so they are used to be not to be in the spotlight!!!

    Deffinately they do. I love fantasy art and these two are 2 of the most reputable. They both deserve more of a shout out for all the effort. As for who's getting more spotlight, I wouldn't know because I never hear of any of them. I wouldn't know of them if I didn't love fantasy art.
