Aredhel and Maeglin by ullakko Aredhel and Maeglin by ullakko
Watercolor and black & white ink pens on heavy, textured paper.

Aredhel, the White Lady of the Noldor, and her son Maeglin leaving Nan Elmoth and riding through the land of Himlad.

The colours turned out autumn-ish by accident.. it's supposed to be midsummer in the story. The purple in the background was just supposed to be a hint of heather growing out there. Oh well!

Characters from The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien.

Pretty~ Im hoping to read the Silmarillion soon, though I have been told to read LOTR first as someone told me they are very different

Thanks! I agree, Silmarillion's writing style is very different - some love it, others hate. It took me several tries (during many years) before I ended up actually reading the whole thing. I'm glad I did, though I still prefer LOTR and the Hobbit. :)

The atmosphere here is amazing. I found myself staring at it for a few minutes, I wasn't even looking at the characters, but the hills and sky and grass, and I could see the grass moving, and feel the cold, wet air. I actually like it that you didn't make the weather sunny and nice. This fits someone restless like Aredhel [and me :p] who just refuses to stay inside no matter what.

Really lovely! And I think Tolkien would forgive the season. ;) Personally I think it looks like a chilly early Summer morning. It takes sunshine for the world to turn golden, and in that cool early morning light, this is how things look.

Thank you! Heh :) As Himlad is supposed to be cold and plain, I wanted to avoid bright colors - I'm glad it doesn't seem too autumny to you.

Very beautiful...! The autumn-ish look adds a sad and foreboding component to it.
