"Snowflakes were lazily drifting before his eyes. He wanted to reach out, to catch them, to hold them in his hand, but... He had only one hand. The attempts to hold his shawl with the stump nearly ended with the garment falling. All he could do was to reach out with the stump or...

Put his face towards it, as towards the Sun"


From "The First Snow" [link]
________________


Płatki śniegu leniwie przepływały przed oczami. Chciał wyciągnąć rękę, złapać je, trzymać w dłoni, ale... Miał tylko jedną dłoń. Próby podtrzymania szala kikutem omal nie skończyły się upadkiem szaty na śnieg. Cóż, pozostało wyciągnąć kikut, lub...

Wystawić twarz, jak do słońca.


Z "Pierwszego śniegu" [link]

Lovely piece of fanfiction... it touched me a lot...:) And the drawing itself is fantastic! His face looks so serene and peaceful; it shows that he's enjoying that precious moment with all his heart.
(Although when I first saw this pic, I automatically felt cold seeing him stand in snow with only this garment;))
It's great to see drawings of Maedhros looking happy, or at least peaceful, after Thangorodrim...:)
I think I prefer this Sepia version to the cyan one.

Thank you, glad you find them touching :thanks: Great to know the feeling of freezing you've had looking at the picture, I bet Maglor felt the same :)
I couldn't decide myself, thus two colour variants :giggle:

You're very welcome!:) Yes, I think he felt the same too. That's why he insisted so much on getting his brother inside. Maglor... he's always so caring:) Or at least (most of the times) he is depicted as such, in fanfiction.

I think the cyan version expresses the coldness of the day much better. But I'm feeling cold just by seeing the sepia version; Imagine how the cyan makes me feel;) So maybe that's one of the reasons I prefer the sepia one, haha:)

This caring Maglor has been definitely inspired by Ithilwen's Maglor :)

Do not worry, Nelyo doesn't feel that cold, after what he has experienced at Thangorodrim it's just a nice chill :)

I see:) Ithilwen's writing is really amazing. I love many of her stories! She has a great Maglor.

I know, haha. That's what I always thought too:) Extented exposure to all kinds of weathers must have made him almost immune.

:jawdrop: This is amazing. It's so sensual and completely full of emotion. This is Maedhros at his most vulnerable and most beautiful. Professor Tolkien would absolutely LOVE this. Most people don't look close enough at Maedhros to see this side.

I can't leave this without commenting about how realistic it looks. The textures and shading are amazing. I love his hair and the peaceful, longing expression on his face. This is truly one of a kind! :+fav::+favlove::+fav:

Thank you so much for so kind words :thanks: I hope the Visionaire would accept my vision of his hero. His characters weren't just black or white, as they seem to look like to many people. Or maybe we imagine too much? But I'm sure he had much more to tell about Maedhros and he would tell us only if he had enough time to finish his creation. Thank you for the fav!

I completely agree! Maybe we do read into it more than the Professor's published works factually prove, but I have no doubt that he intended for us to realize that these were people with souls, consciences, good and bad sides. They were real to him and he shared them with the world. You're so welcome for the fav! :glomp:

Ja jakoś sepię wolę, nie wiem... może dlatego, że nie lubię zimy i śniegu (tzn za oknem niech sobie leży, póki nie muszę wychodzić :D), a sepia powoduje, że całość jest jakaś cieplejsza ^^

To prawda, sepia wydaje się cieplejsza, ja sama nadal nie mogę się zdecydować ;) Dziękuję za favorka :thanks:

Wiesz co, przy okazji oglądania tego obrazka przyszło mi do głowy, że mogłabyś narysować Iasona. Ten typ twarzy może idealnie do niego pasować - jest posągowy, piękny i jednocześnie wydaje się trochę nierealny. Tylko znacznie bardziej wolę Twoje rysunki, które nie są po prostu portretem, tylko przedstawiają jakąś sytuację, jak np. tu.
Innymi słowy - b. fajny rysunek. ;)

Oj, ja też, ale najpierw muszę te moje twarzyczki postudiować, by je wrzucać na ilustracje :) No, ale ja buźki Maedhrosa nigdy do końca nie ustaliłam i ten tutaj nie jest jeszcze "sobą" w 100%.
:whisper: Nadal uważam, że coś jest nie tak z proporcjami głowy - inny kąt widzenia twarzy i brody względem czoła i tyłu głowy.

Iason powinien być posągowy, jak najbardziej. Dla mnie idealny jest tutaj, tylko udaje archanioła: [link] ;) Na pewno go narysuję, prędzej czy później :) Tylko się muszę rozkręcić, jak na razie pozaczynałam masę rzeczy i niczego nie skończyłam.

Oooh, I love it! I love the story, too, I hadn't read that before. I can't decide which color I like better- cyan's more snow-ish, but the sepia's more Maedhros-y.
