I really like this one, its simple but still beautiful in its own way.
And... the lines are made by text. Does it really say something or is it just random chatter?

Thank you!
I used real text from the book, thought it's not text for reading and nobody can read it:)

This is very beautiful, and mysterious. It reminds me of when films fade from one scene to another - in this case, a close-up of a face to the journey ahead. I wonder what the person's connection is to the journey. I really like the subtle use of text in the image as well, I didn't notice at first. Is that a female sun and a male moon? That's interesting, it's almost always the other way around. What does the central sphere above them represent? Sorry for all the questions, this is a lovely image :)

Sorry for late answer.
Thank you very much, for faves, and for watch, e.t.s.
As you can see from description, it's illustration to J.R.R.Tolkien, and in Tolkien's legendarium sun is female and moon is male.
Central sphere above them (if I rightly understood what you mean) is the star Earendil, brigtest of the stars.
And for "what the person's connection is to the journey", sorry, I don't understend, what do you mean? My English is not so good:(
