Tinfang Warble



It was Tinfang Warble that was dancing there,
Fluting and tossing his old white hair,
Till it sparkled like frost in a winter moon;
And the stars were about him, and blinked to his tune
Shimmering blue like sparks in a haze,
As always they shimmer and shake when he plays.

-J.R.R.Tolkien: The Book of Lost Tales

Such an intriguing, obscure character, mentioned only in two poems!
( www.councilofelrond.com/poem/o… and www.councilofelrond.com/poem/t… )
I tried to draw him before (very long ago...), and I thought he deserves another try, as there is no proper illustration of him wherever I tried to find it.

Also a contest prize for :iconestudiosideasoez: for the 3rd place in the "Tales of Trees" contest.

Star brushes - (trying to find where I got them...)
