Very beautiful and fine work! I like how the amount of details makes it look realistic, yet there is still a feel of fantasy in it. This is true for all your drawings, which is what motivated me to read the Silmarillion and I just got to this event today.

Very fine work, and a lovely subject; often a lesser-known tale, but an inspiring part of Tolkien's mythos. The Elven characters are wonderfully rendered and the horses are also graceful and noble; true Elven steeds - but for me, the star is the wise & brave Huan the Hound, sadly one of JRRT's near-unsung heroes, yet one of his greatest. Thank you for immortalising Huan so brilliantly! :)

I hate those two...

Maedhros and Maglor are the only ones of from that house i somehow sympathize with, specially Maglor.

Of Amrod and Amras we know little to nothing and Caranthir did not seemed very nice other than helping Haleth once, and that was mostly out of convenience.

Картина прекрасна!

А кто модель персонажа на переднем плане, если не секрет? То есть я вижу, что ирландский волкодав, но интересна - опять же если не секрет - конкретная собака.

Я коогда-то был на ролёвке, где Хуана играла эта же порода. Вот как раз пост с фоткой оттуда про Вашу картину: irene-dragon.livejournal.com/4…

И за ссылку спасибо, фотография шикарна!    Хуан рисовался действительно с ирландского волкодава, на просторах интернета отыскалась фотография с волкодавом необычной, белой масти,  это было особое удовольствие для рисования))

Надеюсь, что Вам понравится, а может и послужит вдохновением, фоточка ещё с той же игры www.wagner.pp.ru/~irene/photo/… это Хуан пришёл к Лютиэн в глубинах Нарготронда. Диктофон, повешенный на ошейник, не сработал, но эта сука (в строго буквальном смысле слова) и так всё сказала. И у меня (игротеха с фотоаппаратом) забрала плащ, чтобы отнести хозяйке. На это сочинилась версия, что всё так и было, а про дар речи это поздние мифы - ramendik.livejournal.com/19521…

А вообще фотки и отчёты с игры тут: irene.wagner.pp.ru/ . Собаки больше нет на свете, что неудивительно, игра была 12 лет назад.

Look at that...four horse's arses...and there are only two horses. :\

But allow me to get serious, and beyond my irritation at these two sons of Feanor…. This is a beautiful depiction of this scene. This is just the kind of fine work that I imagine the final work of my own Middle-earth based artwork to be, if I just put in enough effort…the kind of hopes that are dashed by the reality of my relative lack of skill, such reality that tends to slap me across the face when I find something like this, made by someone obviously talented…. Not that I’m trying to have a self-pity party – just trying to express how this picture goes to my heart…. Though it also makes me rather excited and happy to see such fantastic effort go to Silmarillion illustrations.

I think you've done super well in balancing everything in this painting. The colours, the foreground-background, perpsective, etc etc...
I keep coming back to look at it more!

Мое первое впечатление от этой работы - это цветовая гамма, как потрясающе сочетаются между собой подобранные цвета!

Второе, что приковывает взгляд - это выражение лица Куруфина: не знаю, может я себе сама додумываю, исходя из собственных представлений об этом герое, но мне кажется, тебе на редкость хорошо удалось передать его характер - даже не знаю, как описать эти качества по отношению к эльфу, но тот факт, что он совершит любую подлость, чтобы добиться своего (при этом веря, что он это заслуживает и это другие дураки, что несогласны и посему заслуживают его дурного обращения)))

Поза и выражение лица Келегорма передают его железную уверенность в себе - в собственной  способности добиваться желаемого, чем в данной случая стала бедняжка Лютиен)))

И Лютиен тоже потрясающе вышла - чувствуются и видны ее усталость и тревога, в позе и выражении лица.

А про Хуана я, наверное, уже говорила, но наверное повторюсь: я обожаю Хуана и мне очень нравится, как ты его изображаешь! Как и с другими героями, тебе замечательно удалось передать его характер - прежде всего любовь и преданность.

This reminds me a little of the tapestries created by William Morris around the holy grail story. I was equally blown away by both your work and his it's very detailed

 Most excellent work; I particularly love the expression of canine hero-worship written all over the muzzle of The Hound of Valinor - as though Lancelot had just caught sight of Guinevere for the first time (and were a giant wolf-hound!).:) (Smile)
