HAPPY 127TH BIRTHDAY, PROFESSOR!The Silmarillion Club joins the millions of Tolkien fans around the world in celebrating the birthday of our beloved author!
Together with the Tolkien Society, we invite our club members and followers to mark this occasion by raising a glass at 9pm (local time) and simply toasting:
No geilu hirir le i nostor lîn, Pengoloth!
Alassë merendenna i Carmo!
The Fall of Gondolin in AugustJ.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Fall of Gondolin” to be published in August 2018:
CLUB'S POLICY ON SLASH GENDER-BENDER SUBMISSIONSDue to the continuing submission of deviations with SLASH or GENDER-BENDER content, we would like to remind all our members that neither of those two categories are accepted.
This has nothing to do with our personal views on the matter, but with canon-compliance. The club already has a category, AU, were members are given plenty of leeway to explore The Silmarillion legendarium in ways that can diverge from canon to a certain extent. However, we find certain categories such as Slash or Gender-bender to be too remote from Canon to be part of the club's gallery. There are other Middle-earth/Tolkien-related groups here on dA that will accept that content and add it to their galleries.
Please, continue to check our Art Submission Guidelines for reference before submitting your artwork, and do not hesitate to drop us a line if you have any doubt.
BEREN AND LUTHIEN - ALAN LEE ART SESSION ON FB!(From the publisher's site)
On Thursday 1st June at 12.30pm, renowned Tolkien illustrator Alan Lee will hold a live drawing session on Facebook to celebrate the publication of Beren and Lúthien.
He will be taking requests and draw five favourite Tolkien characters in 5-minute sketches, that the lucky chosen participants will then receive. So don’t forget to tune in next week!
Pre-order Beren and Lúthien now, out in hardback June 1 http://po.st/berenluthien

Movie inspired artA reminder about our rule regarding movie-inspired art: as you know, we often reject images which visually follow the movie designs. We judge every case differently, so sometimes we accept a submission despite displaying some likeness to movie designs but the general rule still applies - we do not accept art inspired by the Hobbit and LotR movies (nor books). But since many of you enjoy creating Silmarillion art visually inspired by the movies we've decided to create a folder for it in our Favorites section. All the other rules we have still apply, so please follow them (i.e time scope extending up until the end of the II Age, no movie/book H&LotR events, etc...). But from now on, if you have Noldorin army in armour inspired from the movies or your II age Thranduil resembles Lee Pace feel free to add it there

COSPLAY FOLDER/LARMA-TYALIE - NEW RULES (REPOST)We are reposting this journal to remind members of the new rules for the Cosplay submissions.
Given the amount of submission of similar photographs to the Cosplay/Larma-tyalië folder, we've decided to set a limit of submissions per cosplay: from now on, the limit will be 4 photographs per cosplay.
We recommend you submit your best 4 shots; if you submit a higher number, we'll choose 4 to add to the club's gallery and reject the rest.
However, this new limit of 4 photographs per cosplay does not apply if you submit pictures of the same costume but in a truly different set, maybe with extra characters, depicting a different story, etc... That is, something that makes this cosplay really different than the previously submitted one. If that's the case, we will consider this a new cosplay and accept 4 extra photographs.
If you have any doubt, please just drop us a line
Art theft at TeeChip - don't buy there!There is a print on demand service called TeeChip which users profit from stolen artwork, sold without artists consent. The most probably it is done by the users, not site runners, but it is quite hard to take a stolen artwork down - judging by comments in journals at dA - which puts owners in question, too. (links to journals & comments below). You will not find the items for sale via search engines on their site, they advertise it on social platforms like Facebook, under the guise of fan pages. Chances are you have already seen it, if not check this group - especially LotR & Hobbit inspired artists:
or at their page:
Don't buy there and tell others to avoid it! First - images were stolen. If it wasn't enough for a reason - the prints cannot be of a good quality if it is printed from low resolution images saved for web. Google reviews - p
* TATTOO DESIGN CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME *Okay everyone, I'm looking to design my next tattoo. Currently have Laurelin, the golden tree of Valinor, tattooed on my right rib cage (and will be adding Telperion to my left). But I need to fill in all the space around Laurelin.
Basically, I'm cutting my body in half and doing one side good and one side evil. Laurelin, on my right side, was a tree killed forever whereas Telperion lived on through his Nimloth and eventually the Tree of Gondor. So to fill in around Laurelin I'm looking to have the following quote illustrated.
This quote comes from the Book of Lost Tales 1: for lo! through Melko have terror as fire, and sorrow like dark waters, wrath like thunder, and evil as far from my light as the depths of the uttermost of the dark places, come into the design that I laid before you. Through him has pain and misery been made in the clash of overwhelming musics; and with confusion of sound have cruelty, and ravening, and darkness, loathly mire and all putrescence of thought or thing
