The Meeting of Thingol and Melian (Inktober Day 4) by MatejCadil The Meeting of Thingol and Melian (Inktober Day 4) by MatejCadil
Day 4 of inktober 2018 - "Spell".

I think anyone of you who has read The Silmarillion must instantly recognize this scene - in my opinion one of the most memorable and enchanting in the book: Thingol and Melian meeting in Nan Elmoth.

I am quite happy with this one, though it was difficult to draw by pen and it took me much longer than I wanted. (I must also acknowledge heavy use of the depictions of the same scene by EKukanova and LiigaKlavina as reference:-))

What do you think about it?

Doomed them both. A LOT of meetings like that in The Silmarillion.  Looks like a good Medieval Illumination.

Ooooh! That is a very interesting drawing. I've never of heard Thingol and Melian, but I do love her hair. I even like how you drew it in a flowing way. And the stars are just as pretty as her dress. :D
