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?
Thank you! I, too, feel that the tale of their meeting is memorable and enchanting.
Doomed them both. A LOT of meetings like that in The Silmarillion. Looks like a good Medieval Illumination.
I like the design!
Very nice art!
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.
