Excluding the master i did actually like Wetas Laketown, especially the architecture. It was one of their best work if you ask me.

Image Just mix it with archological art, and more grounded Lake-town depictions like this.Image then recreate buildings from the professors own art and you got yourself the perfect Laketown.

This is one of my favorites, although it needs more stave-church towers thay Weta are so good at.

Would love if someone with access to the making of books could share the laketown pages with me!

I completely agree with this, they got the look just right
Gimli: It's true you don't see many Dwarf-women. And in fact, they are so alike in voice and appearance, that they are often mistaken for Dwarf-men.
Aragorn: It's the beards.

Some more Northmen, they hail from the eaves of Northern Mirkwood to the Shore of the river Carnen.

I particularly like the diversity but consistency of their clothing. There's definitely a cultural 'style' present, as though there are fashion trends to a degree, but everybody's still got their own thing going on.

Yeah, might try and draw a cultural map of the Dalelands, with different styles of clothing for different regions.
It would of course hold no canonical value, but would be a fun project.
