Breath of Arda by ElbenherzArt Breath of Arda by ElbenherzArt
"Manwë is the dearest to Iluvater and understands most clearly his purposes. He was appointed to be, in fullness of time,
the first of all Kings: lord of the realm of Arda and ruler of all that dwell therein. In Arda his delights is in the
winds and the clouds, and in all the regions of the air, from the heights to the depths, from the utmost borders of the Veil 
of Arda to the breezes that blow in the grass. Sulimo he is surnamed, Lord of the Breath of Arda. All swift birds, strong of 
wing, he loves, and they come and go at his bidding."

For a portfolio project I'm working on! This killed me on many levels and I had to use ALL my skills to get it done the way I wanted to. Also Jason Rainville helped out with some great artdirection!
There are still things to improve and I will go back to this piece in a few weeks. For now I'm calling it done. Next painting will be his Spouse. :)

Lovely piece, great composition! Looking up at your character against the blue heavens gives him a feeling of loftiness or even divinity. Great work!

I'm glad this translates as I want it to be. It's a god at least, loftiness is what suits him.
