Aside from the influence of the source writing of Tolkien influence is also drawn from Director Peter Jackson's film trilogy (2001-2003) and the highly regarded Tolkien illustrators Alan Lee and John Howe.

“And then he found himself at the doors of the great hall beneath the gleaming tower...and entered the cool white echoing shadows of the house of stone...Pippin looked into a great hall.  It was lit by deep windows in the wide aisles at either side, beyond the rows of tall pillars that upheld the roof...between the pillars there stood a silent company of tall images graven in cold stone.”
