'He's not here.' by Gold-Seven 'He's not here.' by Gold-Seven
Maglor and Celegorm go to find out what happened to Maedhros, who set out to meet an embassy of Morgoth and has not returned. Finding the bodies of the warriors in his company but not Maedhros himself, it begins to dawn on them that war on Morgoth has more options than winning or being slain.

Another of my favourite "Missing Silmarillion moments". When Maedhros is captured, nothing at all is ever said about his brothers. Later, they are seen retreating before Morgoth rather than trying to rescue their brother, and while the FŽanoreans are not a particularly loving bunch, at least Maglor would have been riddled with guilt.


Pencil, with some light watercolour wash. (And my, does the result make me happy!)

Characters, as always, are from J. R. R. Tolkien's The Silmarillion.

More info, some steps, and a scary 1995 version (aka "morale boost for beginning artists") on my blog. [link]
