Но оделила посланцев златом украшений —
последних, что остались, и с послами отправился
Хурина шлем, в схватках изрубленный,
когда бился он с Бэрэном как брат и товарищ
против орков, и огров, и неприятелей злобных.
Золотой отделкой сталь серосверкающую
мастера украсили, руны высекли
мощи и мужества, и магия шлема
от гибели и ран берегла ратника,
кто в схватке носил блистающий ярко
его гребень гордый с грозным драконом, —
вот дар благодарности владыке Тинголу.
Так Халог, вассал ее, в Хитлум вернулся,
но Тингола таны почтительно ее поблагодарили
и устремились из Митрима, пусть зима седая
высоты и стонущие леса укрыла,
ибо горам не задержать народ прикровенный.
И вот, Морвэн посланье через месяц пути —
так скор был их шаг — достигло Дориата.
Мэлиан исполнилась к Морвэн состраданья,
бронь же принял король учтиво,
дар чудесный, доброе молвив слово;
хоть в его подземьях бездонных в избытке имелось
оружеен эльфийских со снаряженьем старинным,
все ж держал он даренье так, словно сокровища его были скудны:
«Величавые чёла венчал сей шлем,
он знак возносит, что известен Северу
и Дорломину дорог, — вздыбленный дракон.
Его Талион Эритамрод, трижды прославленный,
с жестоким супостатом в схватки часто нашивал.
О, если б в день безнадежный надел он шлем,
в губительной битве избегнуть гибели!»
Овладела дума духом Тингола,
позвал он Турина и сказал ему ласково,
что родительница его Морвэн дар великий
послала сыну, наследье отцово,
что рунами украсили древние умельцы
в кра́е карлов, во время оно,
прежде чем Митрима и Хитлума туманного люди
достигли в странствиях; встарь им владел
пращур предков народа Хурина,
чей родитель Гумлин передал его сыну,
прежде чем из сердца рассаженного исторглась душа его.
«То баснословная работа Тэльхара:
сей шлем защитит от волшбы и ран,
от секиры сверкающей и клинка сбережет.
Доспех наследный до взросленья храни,
а когда призовет тебя схватка, отважно надень его
и носи со славой!» Сердцем кручинясь,
притронулся к нему Турин, но тяжесть не поднял,
слишком слабый пока, чтобы шлем сей принять,
душой сокрушен из-за помышленья Морвэн,
уныл и мрачен.

It's fantastic. You should complete it even it it is just a sketch. Great expression in the visage, and deeply beautiful at the same time.
Now, for Nienor!

Love his face! It became my mental image for Turin's face! You are really good with faces.

I've been going back and forth between this drawing and the ones you did of Hurin and Morwen and somehow you made him look like both his mother and his father so that I can see that he is their son from the resemblance.  *VERY* nicely done.

This drawing comes closest to "my Túrin" of all the drawings, paintings, etc. I have ever seen of him. He looks so handsome and beautiful (despite his troubled look...) and yet manly and most importantly human. Also I love the helmet, because it doesn´t look like some super fantasy dragon helmet from outta space (hope you get what I mean, this exaggerated fantasy look), but rather realistic and historical.

You did an amazing job on this one!!! (all the others as well, actually ;P)

Хороши лица персонажей - не стилизованы и очень убедительны. Понравились ситуативные картины: The death of Glaurung, Doriath. Beleg and young Turin. Хотелось бы видеть больше таких картин.

I like the way you've depicted Túrin... he looks somewhat like David Conrad, from Ghost Whisperer; his features allow for a troubled look, as well as a more determined, sedate one (in your painting of Túrin and Finduilas).

Love to see it in color

I have started some color illustration series for Tolkien, so far I'm posting the sketches.
I believe that gouache will be the best technique for these paintings.
But it will take quite some time =)

Friends, many thanks for your warm feedbacks!

Yours,
Elena

Thank you =)
But it is impossible to illustrate THE WHOLE Silmarillion, it's just unrealistic! =)
But I have certain ideas and will be adding the graphics as soon as they're done.
