Galadriel welcomed the Fellowship to Lothlórien after their escape from Moria. When she met the Fellowship in her tree dwelling at Caras Galadhon, she gave each member a searching look, testing their resolve — though Boromir interpreted this test as a temptation. She was in turn tested when Frodo Baggins offered to place the Ring in her keeping. Knowing that its corrupting influence would make her "great and terrible", and recalling the ambitions that had once brought her to Middle-earth, she refused the Ring. She accepted that her own ring's power would fail and that her people would diminish and fade with the One Ring's destruction, and that her only escape from the fading of the Elves and the dominion of Men was to return at last to Valinor. There is the suggestion in the novel, backed up by other writings,[5] that in acknowledgement of this renunciation of power her personal ban from Valinor was lifted and she was finally given leave to return over the sea.

Design for a bookmark' pack based in Lord of the Rings’ theme wel to me most exactrly is based in The Silmarillion.
Those character are Valar (Gods), now I'm going to copy-paste their info from Wikipedia:

Yavanna
Queen of the Earth and Giver of Fruits, spouse of Aulë, also called Kementári. She created the Two Trees, and is responsible for the Kelvar (animals) and Olvar (plants). It was she who requested the creation of the Ents, as she feared for the safety of the trees once her husband had created the Dwarves. The Two Lamps are created by Aulë at Yavanna's request, and their light germinates the seeds that she had planted. Following the destruction of the Two Lamps by Melkor and the withdrawal of the Valar to Aman, Yavanna sang into being the Two Trees of Valinor.

Manwë
He is the King of the Valar, husband of Varda Elentári 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 Ainur and the greatest of the Aratar.

Varda
Queen of the Stars, spouse of Manwë, titled Elentári in Quenya and Elbereth Gilthoniel in Sindarin. She kindled the first stars before the Ainur descended into the world, and later brightened them with the gold and silver dew from the Two Trees. Melkor feared and hated her the most, because she rejected him before Time. The Elvish hymn A Elbereth Gilthoniel appears in three differing forms in The Lord of the Rings.

Oromë
Brother of Nessa and husband of Vána, also known as Araw in Sindarin, Aldaron ("Lord of the Trees"), Arum, Béma, Arāmē, The Huntsman of the Valar, and The Great Rider. During the Years of the Trees, after most of the Valar had withdrawn completely from Middle-earth and hidden themselves in Aman, Oromë still hunted in the forests of Middle-earth on occasion. Thus, he was responsible for first finding the Elves at Cuiviénen.

Ulmo
Lord of Waters. Unlike the other Valar, he was not married and had no fixed dwelling place. He lived in the deep waters of the ocean, and seldom troubled to come to Middle-earth unless the need was dire. Ulmo was one of the chief architects of Arda. In power he was second to Manwë.

Melkor
The First Dark Lord. His name means "he who arises in might". He was the first of the Ainur to be created by Eru Ilúvatar and the one who created discord in the Music of the Ainur. The spiritual brother of Manwë, he was the most powerful of the Valar, as he possessed all aspects of Eru's thought, whereas the others each possessed only some. He turned to evil, and was taken back to Valinor in the chain Angainor after the Awakening of the Elves in Cuiviénen. He remained on parole in Valinor for three ages, but after the poisoning of the Two Trees and the theft of the Silmarils, he fled from Valinor. He was no longer counted among the Valar, and Fëanor, one of the leaders of the Noldorin Elves, called him "Morgoth Bauglir", The Great Enemy, by which name he was known in Middle-earth ever after. He was cast out of Arda at the end of the War of Wrath.

This took me so long to finish it is legitimately stupid. But I am excited that it is done and I finally get to show you my shiny things. :3

I had a dream about the origins of Sauron/Mairon the Maiar, and his time spent in the service of Aulë the Smith. Now I am trying to put some of that dream-material into a comic.

I want to explore some of the empty margins in the history of these characters, simply because there is a lot about Middle Earth theology that frustrates me a great deal, and I feel like the motivations of a lot of the 'dark' characters are not explored in the books at all (or at least, not to my satisfaction). So this is my sort of self-indulgent, mini "Paradise Lost" for the Silmarillion. XD

So, I started dreaming about Silmarillion stuff back during Chanukah…
One of those great, super-vivid, uninhibited brain-juice dreams that you have when you read something intense and then can’t quite sleep afterwards. Anyway, I had a dream about the origins of Sauron/Mairon the Maiar, and his time spent in the service of Aulë the Smith. And I wanted to make it into a comic.
I’ve tried to keep the character designs similar, at least, to the way they showed up in my head (it’s hard for me to go directly from dream-stuff to comics).

Here’s the first page. It’s been a few years since I last tried my hand at drawing comics and it is like trying to bench press an angry gorilla. @__@

From Tolkien's " Silmarillion":

The Maiar are less powerful than the Valar, the gods of Middle Earth; some kind of angelic, elemental spirits.
All of them serve their particular Valar.
I didn't draw the later Blue Wizards or Balrogs, for I had no real picture of them in mind (yet).

Btw: Even non-Silmarillion-readers will discover some people they know in the first and last row.



Short and easy Who is Who:

Eonwe: Manwe’s banner-bearer and herald, one of the chiefs of the Maiar, said to be the best in Arda with weapons.

Ilmare: Varda’s handmaiden, one of the chiefs of the Maiar, her name may mean as much as ‘starlight’.

Mairon: Originally one of the Maiar of Aule, Mairon’s love for crafting and perfection made him the ideal victim for Melkor, for whom he spied some time before he joined him openly and made quite a career under his new name Sauron ("The Abhorred"). After his master was finally kicked into the Void by the other Valar, Sauron took over business very successfully.

 
Melian:
Serving Vana and Este, Melian accidently fell in love with the later great elvenking Thingol and stayed with him in Middle Earth. They had one beautiful daughter named Luthien, who became quite legendary. After Luthien chose mortality and Thingol’s –violent- death, Melian returned to Valinor.

 
Arien:
Serving Vana and Varda, Arien was one of the few Maiar of flame unspoiled by Melkor and chosen to guide the sun. It’s said her eyes were so bright that nobody could look into them.

 
Tilion:
Originally one of Oromes hunters, Tilion loved silver and was chosen to guide the moon. He was a bit reckless, which explains the irregular behavior of the moon. He wanted to be near Arien who guided the sun and tried to catch up with her, but whenever he reached her he got burned so the moon appeared black before the sun.


Osse: One of the Maiar serving Ulmo, Osse loved storms and was quite a wild guy altogether, which explains why he temporally joined Melkor and smashed some coasts and isles for him. Only his wife could calm down Osse - he regretted, was forgiven and served Ulmo again.


Uinen: One of the Maiar of Ulmo, wife of Osse. Uinen loved all plants and animals of the sea. Mariners pray to her for their safety, cause she is the only one who can calm down her wild ship smashing husband.


Salmar: One of the Maiar of Ulmo, Salmar made the Ulumuri for him; the great conches which produce the music of the sea.


Curumo: One of the Maiar of Aule, Curumo was chosen to go to Middle Earth as a messenger of the Valar to fight Sauron. He disobeyed his orders and was banished from Valinor. In Middle Earth, he was known as Saruman the White.


Olorin: A pupil of Nienna, dwelling in the gardens of Irmo, Olorin was said to be the wisest of all Maiar. He could indeed prove that when he was send to Middle Earth with the other Istari to counsel those who opposed Sauron, being called Gandalf the Grey.


Aiwendil: Serving Yavanna, she begged Curumo to take Aiwendil with him to Middle Earth. He became very fond of the local animals and nature, but forgot by and by why he had been originally sent to Middle Earth at all. His name there was Radagast the Brown.

People: Noldor
Father: Mahtan
Mother: Unknown
Husband: Curufinwë Feanàro (Fëanor)
Children: Nelyafinwë Maitimo Russnadol (Maedhros), Kanafinwë Macalaurë (Maglor), Turkafinwë Tyelkormo (Celegorm), Morifinwë Carnistir (Caranthir), Curufinwë Atarinkë (Curufin), Pityafinwë Ambarussa (Amras) and Telufinwë Ambarussa (Amrod)

The daughter of Mahtan, the great smith, and wife of Prince Fëanaro, was mother to all his seven sons. She wasn't considered specially beautiful by the reckoning of elves, even if she could be considered attractive, wise and patient. Her most distinctive trait was her bright copper red hair, unique even amongst the Noldor. She wed Fëanaro while they were still very young and were both under the apprenticeship of Aulë. She gave him seven sons in quick succession, and all of them became important princes of the Noldorin Exile, and she was the only member of the House of Fëanor remaining on Valinor. In a family were all clustered around Fëanor, Nerdanel had always a secondary role, and is often ignored in the myths. Deserving of respect, because for ages of the world and under the light of the trees she reined in and channelled Fëanaro's fiery temper, his attention, his ire, his impatience, his love, his frustrations, his inspiration, his art, his projects and his ambitions. And he listened to her for most of that time, before the making of the Silmarils when he became too much for anyone to withstand and she left him.
