Celeborn King of East Lorien by Moumou38 Celeborn King of East Lorien by Moumou38
Holy Molly, it's finally over. It had been very hard for me to find time lately, I'm very sorry about it :( but I finished this one so enjoy people !

Call that picture test of everything : light effects, background, colors...I tried a lot of new stuffs and almost killed my self while working of the scales of the chain mail .

For further informations : when I began the drawing Celeborn was not alone. Haldir was with him. I was actually planning to draw them in front of a map or something during a battle but I had troubles with coloring Haldir so I changed my mind. (1rst version : [link] )

Moreover, I found that I gave a more stern look to Celeborn than usually and thought that it would fit with the moment when he is alone in Middle Earth.
I had always felt that he kinda hardened after his wife's departure. There was no elvish power on Middle Earth anymore after Galadriel and Elrond's leaving....the atmosphere was more "concrete" (lack of better word) even if I find the background dreamy :heart: Fall is so inspiring....

That's why the picture's name is Celeborn, King of East Lorien.

tadaaaa....I guess you have all of the informations .... see you soon !

PS : if you wanna color the version with Haldir in it, tell me, I'll send you the b/w version.

i feel that a passage from the books would be more appropriate, you know as opposed to your unnecessary personal bullshit, next to a painfully derivative and unoriginal piece

Thranduil was still king in Mirkwood, so I don't think its fair to say there is no elvish power on Middle-earth after Galadriel and Elrond leave. No Noldor power would be more accurate.

really ? but he's such a minor character in the book (though I looove Craig Parker)

Yeah, I know! I do wish he had been mentioned a little more. Whenever he was mentioned though, he was the epitome of all that Tolkien intended for us to believe about the Elves. Tall, fair, loved his life and his Lady and Lothlorien!!He was easily "one" with nature and the golden wood!

sorry I thought you were talking about Haldir...but hell yeah for Celeborn he's just awesome ! Have you read the other books of Tolkien, you will find out so many things about him and Galadriel during their youth

I've read Silmarillion, LOTR (several times), Hobbit and the new one his son finished The Children of Turin. What ones do you recomend?

well there's also History of Middle Earth and the unfinished tales, published by his son, they're pretty cool too. They show previous versions of the story.

This name was in a song by Nightwish, and when I looked it up, I remember it saying something about a book...is he from a book? <:3

I'm sorry about Haldir, as I said, it was a pain in the neck and I found that the picture with only Celeborn was giving another feeling...Stronger and noble, as you said, it is in the "presence"

Les deux versions sont très belles mais c'est vrai que celle ci a plus de majesté, de puissance! Tu as donné à Celeborn un air bien plus rigide et fort que d'habitude et ça le rend incroyablement charismatique et imposant! :love:
Et mention spécial pour le sublime décor en arrière plan! :faint: On dirait du Cézanne!

:iconmoumou38:
Moumou38 Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Cézanne ? me voilà profondément honorée d'une telle comparaison.

Je suis ravie de voir que l'on puisse percevoir un léger changement chez le personnage. Cet air un peu plus rigide que d'habitude ; son existence sur la Terre du Milieu touche à sa fin et il est seul donc bon....ça change un homme

did you add the "PS" later? :D

actually I had started colouring the version +Haldir (my favourite Elf) - but he dosn't look really super - hmmmm....

shall I upload a .PSD-file (to my secret location - lol), so you can look over it?
