Orome, Tamer of Beasts by ullakko Orome, Tamer of Beasts by ullakko
Done with black and white ink and warm grey markers.

From The Silmarillion by J. R. R. Tolkien:

"And OromŽ, tamer of beasts, would ride too at whiles in the darkness of the unlit forests; as a mighty hunter he came with spear and bow, pursuing to the death the monsters and fell creatures of the kingdom of Melkor, and his white horse Nahar shone like silver in the shadows. Then the sleeping earth trembled at the beat of his golden hooves, and in the twilight of the world OromŽ would sound the Valaroma his great horn upon the plains of Arda; whereat the mountains echoed, and the shadows of evil fled away, and Melkor himself quailed in Utumno, foreboding the wrath to come."

Lovely! Yay for Orome fan art!! He needs more of it. :) I love that you depicted this scene/period of time, as it has always been one of my favorites. Beautifully done! The colors fit perfectly, really giving the feel of the darkness of the world in the sleep of Yavaana, with only stars to light it.

This is beautiful. I can't tell you how much I like the style-- the black/white/warm grey is perfect! I like the details in the trees and leaves-- those are so hard to draw and you did a great job.

Thank you so much! I love Tolkien's work, I really feel like pushing myself a little when attempting to illustrate his stories.
