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.

Rían, daughter of Belegund, was the wife of Huor, son of Galdor; and she was wedded to him two months before he went with Húrin his brother to the Nirnaeth Arnoediad. When no tidings came of her lord she fled into the wild; but she was aided by the Grey-elves of Mithrim, and when her son Tuor was born they fostered him. Then Rían departed from Hithlum, and going to the Haudh-en-Ndengin she laid herself down upon it and died."
"Tuor was taken to foster by Annael of the Grey-elves, who yet lived in those hills. Now when Tuor was sixteen years old the Elves were minded to leave the caves of Androth where they dwelt, and to make their way secretly to the Havens of Sirion in the distant south; but they were assailed by Orcs and Easterlings before they made good their escape, and Tuor was taken captive and enslaved by Lorgan, chief of the Easterlings of Hithlum. For three years he endured that thraldom, but at the end of that time he escaped; and returning to the caves of Androth he dwelt there alone, and did such great hurt to the Easterlings that Lorgan set a price upon his head.
The Silmarillion (chapter 21 & 23)

The first picture of a commissioned six-part series of illustrations of the story of Tuor and the Fall of Gondolin (in the Silmarillion and the Unfinished Tales), which I made last summer. These illustrations were painted for an American Tolkien fan who liked my art displayed here on deviantArt.

Here you can see illustrations connected to the early life of Tuor. In the upper part there are Tuor's parents, brave Huor and faithful Rían saying farewell before the Nirnaeth Arnoediad. In the lower part you can see the Sindar folk of Annael, who fostered Tuor in the woodlands and mountains of Mithrim. And in the main part there is Tour just captured by Lorgan and his savage Easterlings, who settled among the ruins of the great civilization of Hithlum.
The corners feature heraldic devices having some connections to the story: In the upper left there's the House of Hador (paternal ancestors of Tuor) and in lower right the House of Bëor (his maternal ancestors). In lower left it's a swan, which was an emblem of Annael, and finally in the upper right there's the swan wing, later adopted by Tuor himself.

Part 2: Journey to the Sea
Part 3: In Vinyamar
Part 4: Coming to Gondolin
Part 5: The Fall of Gondolin
Part 6: A New Beginning

I hope you like it and I'll appreciate your comments. :-)

If you like my Tolkien-related art, look at my related journal or gallery folder.
But you can find even more of my pictures on my website Angrenost.cz. It's in Czech, but you can still look at the gallery of illustrations. Enjoy! :-)

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

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.
