Maedhros is a fictional character in J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium. First introduced in The Silmarillion and later mentioned in Unfinished Tales and The Children of Húrin, he is one of the most enduring characters in The Silmarillion, and has been the subject of paintings by artists such as Jenny Dolfen and Alan Lee. This is my version of Maedhros, the high King of Noldor. His Armor is an early version of the elven armor seen in The Lord of The Rings movie trilogy. Maedhros lived a long time before the Fellowship of the Ring existed, so his equipment looks more like an ancient stuff.

This is one of my numerous sketches for Silmarillion. This book inspires me every time i read it, and I read it frequently.

Túrin Turambar is the primary protagonist and tragic hero of the novel The Children of Húrin, published after Tolkien's death by his son Christopher Tolkien. On my conceptual art Turin is carrying an elven outfit and the Dragon Helmet - a famous artifact, made by Dwarves, ancient helmet of king Azahgal. I designed this helmet after a huge inspiration of Alan Lee's ilustrations from "The Children of Hurin". I just added some nordic ornament from Dor-Lómin and a metal mask, that gave Turin a heroic anonymity. I wanted it to look like a mix of roman and anglo-saxon helmet.

Túrin and Beleg from Silmarillion (and Unfinished Tales). These two are one of my favourites, and their bromance is just the best thing ever ♥

My vision of Manwe, the King of the Valar, husband of Varda Elentári, brother of the Dark Lord Melkor, and King of Arda. He lived atop Mount Taniquetil, the highest mountain of the world, in the halls of Ilmarin. The winds and airs were his servants, and he was lord of air, wind, and clouds in Arda. He was the noblest and greatest in authority, but not in power, of the Aratar and Ainur.

More of these two, and I can promise this won't be the last :'D.
So here's young Túrin who meets Beleg for the first time in the borders of Doriath (I guess? Gosh I just finished Silmarillion for the second or third time but I always forget the details :--D) and Beleg starts to get fond of him.
