Tolkiens inspiration for Rohan came from Gothic and Scandinavian culture.. Gothic castles look kinda similar to HD here, even though i would prefer HD being a bit more grayish in color....
The lore and origin of the rock is really of no importance here.. What is of importance is Tolkiens vision of Horburg and the artist ability to recognize it.
I have to say im not satisfied with this look. The castle looks too blocky as if someone built it from legos ... And the keep seems too robust... I cant say i envisioned it like this..
