Then in defiance of the Orcs, who cowered still in the dark vaults beneath the earth, he (Fingon) took his harp and sang a song of Valinor that the Noldor made of old, before strife was born among the sons of Finwë; and his voice rang in the mournful hollows that had never heard before aught save cries of fear and woe. -The Silmarillion


This is one of the scenes I've ever wanted to draw. The reaction of Maedhros when he hears Fingon's voice singing.


Watercolors and colour pencils on Canson paper. ( Reference )

And.. I know the symbol of the house of Fëanor is a silver star, but I decided to draw a golden one because I wanted to highlight the symbol of Maedhros father as well as I drew the fabric with grey tones and a bit dark so I couldn't find a way to drawing silver details :/ Sweating a little... :( (Sad) 

I hope you like it :)

You’re amazing at facial expression! A rare gift! This is a powerful moment - when Maedhros, beyond despair, hears a song from the far reaches of his memory, almost forgotten... Is it real? It cannot be! He has to be dreaming...

I do! I love the emaciated, skin and bone look of him too. You really captured the torment atmosphere in his appearance.

This is off topic, but who is the face on your icon? I can't find it in your gallery.

Amazing portrait! And merciful to poor Maedhros (I mean - you left him the fabric to cover). I love his face and hair :love:
