Ted Nasmith is a Canadian artist who has done a tremendous amount of work involving Tolkien's masterpieces.

Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings

Many fans of Ted Nasmith have expressed disappointment in his lack of involvement in Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings.

"I was contacted by a producer in early '99. They invited me to be there with the others in New Zealand to help with conceptual art, and made me a nice offer. However, I was going through a personal crisis unrelated to my art, and in the end, being that it would also force me to abandon my freelance obligations and be away indefinitely, I reluctantly declined, settling the question in my mind after very careful deliberation. It was a difficult decision."
― Ted Nasmith [1]

One fan has created a website known as Ted Nasmith: The Uncredited Lord of the Rings Films Concept Artist. The website displays side-by-side illustrations by Nasmith with later scenes in The Lord of the Rings films, which look too similar to be a coincidence.
